Building J2EE Projects with Maven
Subject:   Trouble with the instructions.....
Date:   2005-09-14 09:05:55
Hi again,

I've hit another problem (and solved it) with the instructions.

Problem: I tried to build the address module (by running '# maven' in the /j2ee-maven/maven-petstore-1.4/modules/address directory) but I hit a problem due to a lack of the xmldocuments-1.4.jar dependency. This does not exist in the ibiblio repository.

Solution: However, I cd'd to ./../xmldocuments directory, ran '# maven' there and this compiled and deployed the required jar to my local repository. Then I went back to the addresses module and the example ran as required.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Andrew

    Same thing happens when building the waf module on page 4. Again, solution is to go to the depended upon modules in turn and run their default targets

      Hi Andrew,

      This is simply because I haven't set up a reactor to build all the projects. Here what you can do to build it all at once:

      - go to the top level (for example in maven-xpetstore-ejb-3.1.3)
      - type "maven multiproject:install -Dmaven.multiproject.includes=**/project.xml"

      I guess I should add this in a maven.xml file at the top so that typing "maven" will simply work. Honestly I haven't fine-tuned the build; I just wrote the minimum for the article.
