Hi Joe,
The version of maven was a problem. But I hit some new errors where in the following jars where missing from repo
jaxws-tools-2.0.jar
jaxws-rt-2.0.jar
yoko-spec-corba-1.0-r615303.jar
catalina-6.0.14-G614585.jar
jasper-6.0.14-G614585.jar
After manually installing the jars  I was able to successfully build all the samples.

Thank you for your suggestion

Regards
Ashish

Ashish,

I suspect the problem is your version of maven.  If you are building from samples/branches/2.1 you must use maven 2.0.7.  See http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC21/sample-applications.html

BTW, the samples are still undergoing a lot of change at the moment as we try to clean them up and get an official release.

Hi YunFeng,
Thanks for your suggestion. I was actually trying to checkout the code for https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/samples/branches/2.1/samples/dbtester/
After I checked out the code from https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/samples/branches/2.1/. I get the following error once I try to build the samples.

   Hi Ashish,

   I guess you must check out only the dbtester source codes from
   https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/samples/branches/2.1/samples/dbtester/,
   then you got that error. It will work fine if you check out the all
   the source codes using following command:
     > svn co
   https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/samples/branches/2.1/

   Hope it helpful.

   Subject: Unable to build dbtester sample

   Hi,
   While building the sample available at
   http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC21/dbtester-db-pool-testing-sample-application.html
   I hit the following error.  I looked into pom.xml and found that it
   still contains "2.1-snapshot ".  The error suggests that the
   artifacts are not present at the specified location. I tried adding
   mirrors to settings.xml but could not make it work.
