Dear all,
since reading the two books there is no hint on how to setup a project using maven. I have created a sample maven application which can be downloaded
from here: http://students.ceid.upatras.gr/~nmpallas/zk_maven.tar.gz.
What i would prefer also to see is a full sample application or explanation on how to make zk to operate as an MVC framework. For me who comes from the jsf world,
separating the control from the view helps me better. I can understand that it's not the philosophy behind the framework, but still something similar should exist.
Also what i found rather disturbing after reading the first book which is written also by one of the founders of the framework is that he spend a chapter just to describe
the setup of a project in eclipse. That nowdays with all the wizards inside the IDE is more than easy. I would prefer more explanations regarding the components.
Still thumbs up for a very nit work guys. You have a strong follower, who i must admit was faces addicted(icefaces/richfaces).

best regards

Hi nmpallas,

you can have a deep look at the structure and the codes in the Zksample2 project here. It has a full enterprise stack and many comments in the code. Further there is a pdf doc.
