Probably you need to checkout and build at least that with mvn -N, then try again with daytrader.

You may also need to download and build geronimo trunk, I don't know if there are dependencies on trunk nor how up to date any published trunk snapshots might be.

I need more help. I downloaded the code again from the new link ( into G:\geronimo\samples\trunk. From that directory, I did mvn clean install. I got the following error:

Hi Dianne,

What code base you are working on? Recently I copy daytrader into Geronimo samples trunk for future maintanence, the new URL is

If you get code from there, you can follow these steps to get a war which could be deployed into Tomcat:
1. svn co gsamplestrunk
2. cd gsamplestrunk && mvn install -N && cd samples && mvn install -N && cd daytrader && mvn install
3. then check daytrader/assemblies/web/daytrader-web-jdbc/target for the war file, follow the daytrader/assemblies/web/daytrader-web-jdbc/README to deploy to Tomcat

Hi - Donald Woods told me that he thought changes were being made to DayTrader in trunk to create a war file that can be run on Tomcat. I downloaded the files and see some changes in the code. But, when I build it I don't see any war file. Am I missing something? Or, how close is it to being done? Any projected date?
