I'm not that familiar with Maven (so  this might be a general question)  but I'm trying to build and deploy my project using the Geronimo Maven plugin (for the deployment part). I'm running these commands:  stop, undeploy, distribute, start  (in that order).  Before my project is initially deployed,  stop will  cause errors  and Maven terminates.  Is there a way to configure Maven to ignore the errors from stop and undeploy  so that I don't have to find another way to deploy the very first time ?
