Subject Re: Round trip debugging of Geronimo in Eclipse
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2008 21:16:02 GMT
Hi BJ/Dan, I'm not aware that there can be a shorter method without providing 
better integration between Eclipse and Maven, which might be possible with 
m2eclipse plugin ( but I've never used it. Might 
be a good exercise though, since it would certainly provide much faster 
debugging capabilities.....
