Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2994) Apache Roller plugin
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2007 22:43:32 GMT


Peter Petersson commented on GERONIMO-2994:

Doing some work on this I have:

Added the Apache Roller into the local maven repo with
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.roller -DartifactId=required-jars-roller -Dversion=3.1

Modified the roller-war pom to add the required jars into the WEB-INF/lib directory. This
is the way I had roller running smoothly in a current G v1.2-snapshot (see
It may not be the best way to assemble the roller war but it is probably the easiest way to
get roller running. If there are any issues with this we may rework it later.   
Removed some dependency from the roller-jetty pom related to the changes above. 
Modified the roller-jetty src plan to include some hidden-classes   
I am including the changes files as attachments.

Still having some problems with the plugin deployment. It looks to me that both the G v2.0-snapshot
console plugin method and the command line method have some issues at the moment but I am
not sure, I will look in to it and come back with a jira if this is the case.

running smothly :).
