Yes.  It is difficult to be sure you have found all the dependencies  
in a j2ee plan because the geronimo plan can have dependencies to  
rars (and other j2ee artifacts) that refer directly to the maven (or  
geronimo) repository.  These dependencies aren't needed in the  
project.xml in order to build the configuration so long as the  
artifacts are actually in the repo.  In this case we missed activemq  
and the derby-embed-xa connector.  I've added the missing  
dependencies to the daytrader-tomcat and daytrader-jetty configs in  
head, so the build should work now.

Unless the missing dependency was on the daytrader car files, can you  
figure out what else was missing and tell us?

It worked, so that is good, but it's better to find the missing  
dependencies and add them to the project.xml.
