Create a New ZK Maven Project

In this section, we will demonstrate how to create a ZK maven project with the Maven plugin.

Install Maven Plugin First

Unless your Eclipse version/edition already includes it, you have to install the plugin first. Click [Help]/[Eclipse Marketplace...] and enter "maven" in "Find" textbox to find Maven Integration for Eclipse. Then click "Install" button.


After completing the installation and restarting Eclipse, we can continue the following steps.

Create ZK Maven Project

1. Select [File]/[New]/[Project] to open a New Project dialog. Then choose Maven Project under Maven item and click "Next >".


2. Select location. We usually use default workspace location.


3. Enter "zk" in filter to search ZK maven archetypes and select what you want. Click Next.


4. Enter preferred ZK version in zk-version-since and click Finish.


5. The new ZK maven project is created with ZK dependencies added.


Run ZK Maven Project

1. Right click on your project icon and select [Run as]/[Maven build...] to open run configuration dialog.

  • Running jetty the firs time may take a while because Maven plugins needs to download some necessary resources, please be patient.
