Subject Re: Liferay as a Geronimo Plugin
Date Sat, 21 Jun 2008 16:00:10 GMT
Which maven repository do I need to pull in the following G v2.1.1 
artifacts (if there is any)


I just remember I had a bit of a problem pulling in some of the geronimo 
v2.1.1 used artifacts for this plugin to build smoothly (without 
manually installing geronimo artifacts as I did). I realize building 
Geronimo v2.1.1 locally will resolve this but should it really be 
necessary?  Any pointers on how to resolve this is greatly appreciated.
