Archetype project for AEM SPA project

amritvprakash 08-02-2019

We were in need of an mvn archetype command for an AEM SPA project. We used the one present in the below link but getting an error saying “The desired project doesn’t exist <>” while exexuting a  mvn archetype command for AEM SPA

The mvn command is present in the github link provided below:


$ mvn archetype:generate \
     -DarchetypeCatalog=internal \  \
     -DarchetypeArtifactId=aem-spa-project-archetype  \
     -DarchetypeVersion=1.0.3-SNAPSHOT \
$ mvn archetype:generate -B \
     -DarchetypeCatalog=local  \  \
     -DarchetypeArtifactId=aem-spa-project-archetype  \
     -DarchetypeVersion=1.0.3-SNAPSHOT \
     -Dpackage=<package> \
     -DgroupId=<group-id> \
     -DartifactId=<artifact-id> \
     -Dversion=<version> \
     -DprojectTitle="<project-title>"  \
     -DprojectName=<project-name>  \
     -DcomponentGroup=<component-group> \
     -DoptionFrontend=react, any pointers?

Did you build & install the archetype as mentioned in instructions since the command you mentioned contains '-DarchetypeCatalog=internal or -DarchetypeCatalog=local'?  That should fix the issue.

Building SPA Starter Kit Archetype

$ mvn clean install archetype:update-local-catalog  Updating list of locally available archetypes

$ mvn archetype:crawl

Archetype catalog variants

Depending on the use case maven can use different archetype variant (use -DarchetypeCatalog to choose one):
