Hello Seref

Its not eclipse ..apparently the axiom build is erroring out

this is from dims..
Please remove your ~/.m2/repository/org/apache/ws/commons/axiom
directory and run the geronimo build again. I have cleaned up the bad
jar this morning in apache maven2-snapshots

(I too have noticed this error while building 2.1.1)
1,40] cannot find symbol
symbol  : class OMBuilder
location: package
