Subject Maven build failed with missing WEB-INF/geronimo-web.xml
Date Fri, 09 Jan 2009 18:18:26 GMT


I encountered this problem that I do not quite understand. I set up my demo
after I looked at the car-maven-plugin, m2eclipse and the geronimo sample
calculator. I have manually created my demo project by using maven
achetype-create with groupId=org.apache.geronimo.samples and
archytypeId=geronimo-samples-archetypes. And then I tweaked POM files
generated by looking at calculator POM files. I had to go through this
manual process because my web application is Tapestry5. And I have to add
dependencies to POM files. Maven build sub projects successfully except when
it tried to build jetty and tomcat CAR plugin. Here are the error messages
that I got:

[WARN]  Web application callingcard-war-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.war does not contain
a WEB-INF/geronimo-web.xml deployment plan.  This may or may not be a
problem, depending on whether you have things like resource references that
need to be resolved.  You can also give the deployer a separate deployment
plan file on the command line.

This option can be altered by specifying

and references that are not spec compliant.

1. It seems that I got my first error is that I did not create
WEB-INF/geronimo-web.xml. I can define the option
-DXorg.apache.geronimo.deployment.LenientMFCP=true to make the build
successful. However, I looked at the calculator, it does not have the
WEB-INF/geronimo-web.xml but maven does not fail when it builds jetty/tomcat
car plugin. So why do I have this error? What do I miss in my pom files?

2. Can somesome explain what
DXorg.apache.geronimo.deployment.LenientMFCP=true|false does?

Thank for any helps
