Great stuff! I was just thinking yesterday of how it'd be nice to be able to
easily instantiate objects (like instances) easily from <j:new>
or <j:useBean/>

Right now just mailing maven-dev will do the trick. I've just updated it.
Essentially any repository administrator can just do

    maven jar:deploy-snapshot

Though I really hope that one day really soon all maven-ized projects at
Jakarta will be built nightly, have a nightly distribution put in a
canonical place and the jar added to the repository.

The snapshot is updated now, so maven builds will just pick up the new

Wanna try it again with CVS HEAD? I found that having the
maven.junit.fork=true, which is now in, fixed this
class-loading issue. Lemme know if its still broken for you.

Thanks for a great patch Rod - I'll be using this very soon!
