I received an (anonymous) comment regarding the command-line project creator.
why dont you use Maven archetypes for this ? See http://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-archetypes.html
First of all, if you like Maven I have good news!
The official GigaSpacesXAP product will support Maven and supply some archetypes very soon. (I believe the next early-access build will contain some support for this)
Now, you may, like Charles Miller , not like Maven.
The command-line project-creator is designed to be extremely light-weight and simple for anyone to use.
To use it, you need the jar file ~80kb and a probably two or three batch or shell scripts.
[Once I write some decent documentation, it will be more obvious what is required to execute the functionality.]
While it does create eclipse files, it also creates a build.xml suitable for execution from any ide or even emacs.
That said, once the maven stuff is supported and available, I plan to contribute my service templates to the available archetypes where they can add value.
I do not really see these as competing, but rather co-existing, like items on a menu: some people prefer fish, some meat, both have to eat.
I hope this helps to explain the existence of CPC
BTW: from now on, I will try to have news regarding CPC posted at openspaces and hope further comments can also live there, just for ease of information access and organization.
