Guillaume Laforge, Groovy Project Manager, kicked off a debate on the Neo4J mailing list with his post Groovy and Neo4J. He stated some examples of how Neo4J could be more Groovy. However, since most Neo4J developers aren’t familiar with Groovy, the topic wasen’t tested out further.

Therefore, with of my L337 skillz in Groovy, Neo4J and Maven, I saw it my destiny to create a simple Neo4J test in a Groovy environment to validate Guillaume’s propositions. Along the way, I had to add some GMaven magic, embedded Neo4J, Mercurial version control and Maven Archetype for distribution. No wonder why I didn’t get this out the door yesterday! 😉

Idea for create-archetype-from-existing-project plugin

The project I’m working on is teh best, and I don’t have time to create an archetype from it! Why should I need to structure the project in a different way to create the archetype? If I do that, I cannot continue working on the code. The plugin should be able to rip out all the non-generic stuff, like groupId, projectId, folders, wrap them in templates so they are automatically filled and presto, you have a new archetype.
