Re: [m2e-users] Configuring the web.xml file with m2e-wtp

To avoid the need to trust developers follow such documentation, I decided to mark profiles I want to be automatically activated from Eclipse as activeByDefault direct in the pom.xml.

Maybe it´s not the best solution, but it´s the only one I found to work "automatically" AND without the need to make any extra configuration on each developers environment (such as Eclipse workspace or Maven local configuration in settings.xml)

As pom.xml is always committed to the version control repository, if I need to update information, I just need to commit updated pom.xml and all developers will download it. Also if a new developer joins the team, the configuration will already be set in pom.xml and all he needs to do is download source from the repository.

I believe it may work for you and if you or others have a better idea please share with us =D

That certainly did the trick; Many thanks.

However, it does lead to one more question; is there a way to
automatically activate a profile when m2e imports a pom.xml in to
Eclipse? That way I don't have to remember to activate the right one,
or ensure that my colleagues read the documentation (hah!) when they
import it.

Thanks again,
