Simplest Possible Java EE 8 Kickstarter

The 0.0.2 version of the javaee8-essentials-archetype:

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.airhacks -DarchetypeArtifactId=javaee8-essentials-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=0.0.2

creates a ready to use 3.5kB Thin WAR project with configured JAX-RS runtime, a resource with a GET endpoint ("/ping"), GlassFish v5 Dockerfile and a shell script which executes the maven and Docker build image and eventually starts the image. The build-and-run cycle takes about ...5 seconds.

See you at Java EE Workshops at Munich Airport, Terminal 2 or Virtual Dedicated Workshops / consulting. Is Munich's airport too far? Learn from home:
