Creating an Adobe Experience Manager 6.3 Project using Adobe Maven Archetype 11

You can create AEM 63 projects by using Adobe Maven Archetype 11.  This development article walks you through creating an AEM 6.3 project by using Archetype 11 and explains the default AEM files and services that are created.

The following illustration represents a default page that is created.

Under the Service Component section in the above illustration, notice the values that are displayed.

HelloWorldModel says:
 Hello World!
 This is instance: fe95f477-e525-432b-9fed-9d65dba3f5d2
 Resource type is: aem10/components/content/helloworld

These values are returned by a default AEM service. Once you understand all of the files and services that are created by Maven, you can use this project as starting point for your AEM 6.3 projects.
