Sling Start Feature Maven Plugin

This Maven Plugin is the Feature Model based version of the Slingstart Maven Plugin. It does not depend on its predecessor to keep the Provisioning Model and Feature Model code bases separate.


This plugin is built as usual with:

mvn clean install


The plugin can be used like this:


Customize Kickstart Dependency

The Plugin comes with the latest released version of the Kickstart dependency. That said it provides the ability to use a different Kickstart version. These are the two options:

  • kickstartJar: path to the Kickstart JAR file
  • kickstartDependency: Maven Dependency of the Kickstart artifact


For now this Plugin only supports the starting and stopping of a Sling instance for example to run IT tests.
