Getting started on any project or technology is a surprisingly hard task. Once you have a codebase setup you can easily extend it by finding an existing example of how you have done something and copy from it. But when there is nothing I find I spend a lot of time just getting some basic plumbing working.
We have been playing with a lot of different and new technology at work in the last month, and I want to ensure all of that research and learning was not quickly lost.
Tarcio has a quickstart application on github, which inspired me to do the same.
I have published the first project, a very simple SpringMVC application and have added my first extension to it, a simple SiteMesh configuration, which is available as a branch off the base SpringMVC starter project.
I’m going to add some more branches relating to other complimentary technologies soon:
