Spring 3.1 brings many enhancements to its MVC framework. Many times I need to start some basic project to consult new things on the project for the presentation, blog post or just for myself. In order to make the creation of each project repeatable and easy process I decided to create Maven archetype for that puropose. Currently it is a snapshot version that support basic Spring MVC 3.1 project with JPA2.0 and Apache Tiles. See more details on the spring-mvc-quickstart-archetype project page how to get started with it.
