Subject Re: How to build felix?
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2007 09:43:13 GMT
I had similar problems with a recent checkout from svn and a clean maven
2 repo using maven 2.0.5. For some strange reason, the snapshot
repository is never asked for artifacts.

So I first had to build the maven plugins, but as these require the root
felix pom (which is at that time not in my repository) i first have to
do a "mvn install" in the felix root directory to install the root pom,
then I can build the plugins (one by one) and then the provided ant
script to build felix works.

Perhaps this helps others as well.
