Tapestry 5 - Setting up the environment

Tools stack: Eclipse Ganymede, Maven 2, m2eclipse Maven Eclipse plugin

1. Install JDK 1.5 or greater
2. Download Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers
3. Install Maven 2
4. Install m2eclipse plugin

This is by no means the only possible stack. You can develop Tapestry 5 web applications with any IDE you can think of, even plain notepad if you wish. Of course with Java editors and refactoring capabilities of modern IDEs such as NetBeans, IDEA and Eclipse raises your productivity to a next level.

Also, Maven is not mandatory, you can use any build tool you wish.

Hopefully, as time permits, I will post Tapestry 5 releated stuff in this blog. I will follow my moto as in this latin proverb: "By learning you will teach, by teaching you will learn.".
