Re: [m2e-users] maven web apps not loading in Eclipse with M2E

I should further mention that I am already fighting the battle of the bulge with eclipse + m2e. Adding another heavyweight component to the mix scares me a little. This is why I might prefer webby if it can do what I need it to.

Thanks, Rafał.

I suspected I hadn't installed something I needed.

But now you give me two choices m2e-wtp and webby. :-(

I'd vaguely heard of the former, the latter is new to me.

Can you help me answer the question, which one? I learn that wtp is more
full-featured but sometimes painfully slow and webby is faster but lacks
some things.

I am doing development of a web service. No presentation layer in this
project. Can webby handle this or does it need the JEE support of m2e-wtp?

Hi Steve,

m2e by itself does not support web application development. You need an
additional integration module. At this point there are two alternatives
available: m2e-wtp and webby. Search the list archives for more
information. If you are using one of those modules already, you need to
tell us which one.

I haven't tried before to deploy web apps built with maven on the
Tomcat server running from Eclipse using m2e. I have an app that runs
just fine when deployed as a WAR file on a Tomcat Server, but this app
and another, much simpler app, fail to load under Eclipse. The error
message in the Tomcat console is.

SEVERE: Error configuring application listener of class


Yet the class org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener is
in the Maven dependencies.

A non-maven webapp loads without difficulty in this environment.

Is there something I need to do with m2e to get this to work?
