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


Webby is able to run WARs, no EARs or EJBs. If plain Tomcat is all that your web service needs to run, Webby will work for you. That's what I'm using daily with great results. Other folks are having good experience with m2e-wtp too. There's been a lot of progress lately!

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?
