Re: [m2e-users] EAR, RAD, m2e

Hello Sander,

As Ilko pointed out, there is documentation about Maven in the Infocenter page for RAD 8.5.1. But if that information is not enough, or you have more questions, I suggest to contact RAD support: or post questions in Developer Works

Thanks for your response, Ilko.

I'm on 8.5.1 and I hadn't checked the infocenter page. You may have been
particularly referencing "Recommended POM entries for projects targeting
WebSphere® Application Server". I added some of that to my project but
am getting similar results as before. (It seemingly being slightly
inconsistent with its errors and other bombs makes it harder to focus
and thus pinpoint the issue.) That page doesn't say a whole lot about
EARs to begin with. Do you have a working example of your EAR (dependent
on EJB) project?

What are recommended choices for generateApplicationXml and

As for the maven-subclipse-connector, no Subversion here :-(

Best regards, Sander.
