Select Out-of-the-Box Features

Previous Step


If you haven't done so yet, create your project and build and run it.

The following pages assume your project was created using the groupId org.example (same as default) and artifactId gogreen (different from default). 
Define value for property 'groupId':  org.example: : 
Define value for property 'artifactId':  myproject: : gogreen
Define value for property 'version':  0.1.0-SNAPSHOT: : 
Define value for property 'package':  org.example: : 
Define value for property 'projectName':  My Project: : GoGreen
Confirm properties configuration:
groupId: org.example
artifactId: gogreen
version: 0.1.0-SNAPSHOT
package: org.example
projectName: GoGreen
 Y: : 

Load the Essentials Setup Dashboard in your browser: http://localhost:8080/essentials/.

On the Essentials Setup page, leave the default settings unchanged (i.e. the templating language is set to FreeMarker template and the option to add sample content is selected).

From the Library, add the following features to your project:

  • Banners
  • News
  • Search
  • Simple Content

Rebuild your project.

Restart the application and verify that you now have a web site running at http://localhost:8080/site/. Note how the out-of-the-box features you added already provide some of the functionality you planned to develop in this sprint. It doesn't look like the GoGreen web design yet, but you will get to that soon.
