Subject Re: Eclipse + Geronimo web library dependencies

Ok.  This is definitely a WTP bug then.  Would you mind opening a  
bugzilla against the J2EE WTP component stating that war export fails  
with lib dependencies?  Also, could you open a jira in  
GERONIMODEVTOOLS linking it to the bugzilla number.  I can then make  
sure it gets addressed in WTP 1.0.2.
