HI Gary,

I just tried what I typed and it worked for me.  Note that you either have to include the complete path to the module you are interested in


or use the module artifactId prefixed with a colon ":".  When stuff doesn't work for me its usually because I left out the colon.

hope this helps

Hey David, 
                What Kevan said worked for me. But using maven options as you said, it cannot find the project named "geronimo-tomcat7-javaee6 -am"

You should be able to do this with built-in maven stuff, see


I think in this case

mvn clean install -pl :geronimo-tomcat7-javaee6 -am

would build everything needed for the named assembly including the assembly.
