here are the steps to create a Maven archetype from an existing project:
Navigate to your project directory: Open a terminal and navigate to the directory of the existing project that you want to use as a template for your archetype.
Generate an archetype from the project: Run the following command in your terminal:
Install the archetype locally: Navigate to the
target/generated-sources/archetypedirectory and run the following command:
Use the archetype: Now you can use the archetype to generate new projects. Here is an example command:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=local
Remember, the archetype contains all the files (like pom file, classes, readme, etc.) with variables that will be replaced during project generation. You can modify these files in the
src/main/resources/archetype-resources/ directory of the archetype to fit your needs.
mvn with the appropriate command if you’re not using Maven directly.
