I am learning SalesForce Aura via the documentation provided on github. https://github.com/forcedotcom/aura
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=http://repo.auraframework.org/libs-release-local/archetype-catalog.xml
However, I have run into a bit of a hitch. I would like to make some forms and try out some situations where I am posting data to the back end.
has some good advice for implementing that. However, within the provided example I noticed that all of the servlets are being called from compiled classes. I see no clear place to drop in a new controller to test out my code.
Is there an intended path where users learning from the official documentation can drop in server-side classes into the sample application? Alternatively, is there a guide for integrating Aura API into a known Java webframework (spring works!)
I searched for this information quite a bit, but didn't find anything listing out how to get Aura working with spring on a developer machine.
I did find:
but it seems to assume you are coding up your controllers on a SF controlled server.
Maybe Aura is just not meant to be developed outside of the Salesforce provided environment? I could not find any 3rd party developed Aura applications.
How can I write a controller that will work on my machine for the test application? What folder would it go in within the test application?
