Can any body please direct me to Step by Step guide to setup example website of DXA 1.3 JAVA using SDL Tridion 2013 sp1 in eclipse. I have tried referring to following blogs.



Both these blogs are referring to paths which are no longer valid for DXA 1.3 download of JAVA. For example "DXA.Java 1.2 distribution: web/tridion-libs/7.1.0" this path no longer exists in the DXA 1.3 repository.

Please suggest how can I proceed forward to setup the example website in eclipse.

I would say follow the similar setup that is mentioned for dxa 1.2 java -


for DXA 1.3 you would-

  • Get Related jars that could be added to lib of webapp from-
    (\Download Dir\web\install\source-war\2013sp1\WEB-INF\lib)
  • Get the DXA source code from Github & compile/install it your local Maven repository

    WebApp+Framework - https://github.com/sdl/dxa-web-application-java

    Modules- https://github.com/sdl/dxa-modules

  • Create a DXA web application/Use example webapp using correct configurations

Hope it helps.

  • Thanks for your response but this tutorial is for deployment of application i.e. creating a war file. I need steps to setup the example website in eclipse. Which I can use as development/playground project. Commented Feb 24, 2016 at 10:53
