Generate project using an alternative catalog

It is possible to use an alternative catalog as the internal one by defining the archetypeCatalog property to a specific value which can be one of:

  • internal to use the internal catalog only.
  • local to use the local catalog only.
  • remote to use the maven's remote catalog. No catalog is currently provided.

The default value is remote,local. Thus the local catalog is shown just after the remote one.
