Features overview


A site, a portal or a business application made with Lutece respond to the same integration principles.

It is in all cases to assemble:

  • generic plugins (search engine, SEO, contact form, supervision, ...),
  • possibly one or more specific plugins corresponding to a business application,
  • elements of graphic or configuration specific to this site.

The assembly of all these components is done by the Maven tool. This tool is widely used in the Java world and allows you to perform construction tasks from a project description file ( pom.xml : project object model).

In this file will be declared, in the form of dependencies, all plugins to integrate (generic or specific). This file is also located at the root of a tree that contains the files specific to the project (eg: graphic and configuration).

See Create a Lut├Ęce site POM.xml.

A Lutece site therefore consists of a pom.xml file and a specific file tree. It is assembled to produce a Webapp as a . War file, with the following Maven command:

mvn clean lutece:site-assembly
