Workaround for getting maven to work with wtp [message #3588] Mon, 03 December 2007 06:07 Go to next message
Eclipse UserFriend
Originally posted by: yeechut.gmail.com

As I see - the thing that is missing with deploying a maven project with
wtp is that the WEB-INF/lib is empty - i.e. wtp doesn't know how to
extract maven's dependencies.

I tested with the following workaround - and it seems to work:
- get maven to generate the war file.
- extract the WEB-INF/lib folder from the war file and copy to
src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/lib.
- repeat the above if proejct dependencies changes (which is not too
often).

I am new to maven. Can someone comment whether this approach works?

Many thanks
Yee

you could try war:inplace, still a workaround, but easier

Thanks. That's a good enough workaround for now.

Keep up with the good work for Q4E. I find it very remarkable that there
is no proper integration of mavan and Eclipse yet. I wanted to get started
on maven very much - but took me one whole week of trying all sorts of
things to get to this point. I almost gave up on Eclipse.

Best regards,
Yee

WTP provides a "hook" for other plug-ins to contribute classpath entries
that need to be deployed.

This can be made manually (in the project preferences) or automatically
(the plug-in enables wtp deployment for its managed classpath entries).

q4e/iam is not very far away of being able to do this and m2eclipse has
some support too.
