    • With the 23rd version of the archetype's release there have been many changes to the properties that you can use to configure how the new AEM app is going to be generated.
    • So let’s create the app from scratch. I am providing the most important properties in a single line here given that the other properties will be inferred from them.
      mvn -B archetype:generate "-DarchetypeGroupId=com.adobe.granite.archetypes" "-DarchetypeArtifactId=aem-project-archetype" "-DarchetypeVersion=23" "-DaemVersion=6.5.0" "-DappTitle=First App Example" "-DappId=first-app" "-DgroupId=co.dlighthouse.aem.firstapp" "-DfrontendModule=none" "-DincludeExamples=y" "-DincludeDispatcherConfig=n"
      
      PowerShell
      mvn -B archetype:generate `
        -D archetypeGroupId=com.adobe.granite.archetypes `
        -D archetypeArtifactId=aem-project-archetype `
        -D archetypeVersion=23 `
        -D aemVersion=6.5.0 `
        -D appTitle="First App Example" `
        -D appId="first-app" `
        -D groupId="co.dlighthouse.aem.firstapp" `
        -D frontendModule=none `
        -D includeExamples=y `
        -D includeDispatcherConfig=n
      
    • Let’s build and deploy our new app (make sure that you have AEM up and running)
      mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -Padobe-public
      
    • If you're using a different port for AEM
      mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -Padobe-public "-Daem.port=PORT-NUMBER"
