Create GeoScript Web App with JNDI and Maven

Maven QuickstartΒΆ

This is a short example of how to use GeoScript Groovy to create a simple command line application with Maven.

Create the project skeleton:

mvn archetype:generate -B -DgroupId=org.geo -DartifactId=geo-app -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-quickstart

Move into the new directory:

cd geo-app

Add geoscript as a dependency in pom.xml.

        <name>Boundless Maven Repository</name>
        <url>http://repo.boundlessgeo.com/main</url>
        <snapshots>
            <enabled>true</enabled>
        </snapshots>

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.geoscript</groupId>
        <artifactId>geoscript-groovy</artifactId>
        <version>1.4.0</version>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

Add Groovy Eclipse Compiler Maven Plugin in the pom.xml.

<build>
    <plugins>
        <plugin>
            <groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
            <artifactId>groovy-eclipse-compiler</artifactId>
            <version>2.8.0-01</version>
            <extensions>true</extensions>
        </plugin>
        <plugin>
            <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
            <version>3.1</version>
            <configuration>
                <compilerId>groovy-eclipse-compiler</compilerId>
            </configuration>
            <dependencies>
                <dependency>
                    <groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
                    <artifactId>groovy-eclipse-compiler</artifactId>
                    <version>2.8.0-01</version>
                </dependency>
                <dependency>
                    <groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
                    <artifactId>groovy-eclipse-batch</artifactId>
                    <version>2.1.5-03</version>
                </dependency>
            </dependencies>
        </plugin>
    </plugins>
</build>

Create src and test directories:

mkdir -p src/main/groovy/org/geo

mkdir -p src/test/groovy/org/geo

rm -r src/main/java

rm -r src/test/java

Create App.grovy:

touch src/main/groovy/org/geo/App.groovy
package org.geo

import geoscript.geom.Geometry

class App {
    static void main(String[] args) {
        if (args.length < 2) {
            println "USAGE: org.geo.App <geometry> <buffer distance>"
        } else {
            Geometry geom = Geometry.fromString(args[0]);
            println geom.buffer(args[1] as double);
        }
    }
}

Create an executable jar.

<plugin>
    <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
    <artifactId>maven-jar-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>2.4</version>
    <configuration>
        <archive>
            <manifest>
                <addClasspath>true</addClasspath>
                <classpathPrefix>lib/</classpathPrefix>
                <mainClass>org.geo.App</mainClass>
            </manifest>
        </archive>
    </configuration>
</plugin>

Collect jar dependencies.

<plugin>
    <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
    <artifactId>maven-dependency-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>2.8</version>
    <executions>
        <execution>
            <id>copy</id>
            <phase>package</phase>
            <goals>
                <goal>copy-dependencies</goal>
            </goals>
            <configuration>
                <outputDirectory>
                    ${project.build.directory}/lib
                </outputDirectory>
            </configuration>
        </execution>
    </executions>
</plugin>

Build it!:

mvn clean install

Run it!:

java -jar target/geo-app-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar
USAGE: org.geo.App <geometry> <buffer distance>

java -jar target/geo-app-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar "POINT (1 1)" 10
POLYGON ((...)
