Hi Chris,
Looks like you need to hide the JSF 1.2 spec API classes from the JSF 2.0 implementation in
your app. I am assuming that you'll be providing the jsf 2.0 spec api jar in your .war...

Using the following deployment plan should help:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns="" xmlns:dep=""


You can keep the deployment plan separate or place with deployment plan in WEB-INF/ directory
of your .war (in which case it will be detected automtically by geronimo deployment code).

Otherwise, you specify the deployment plan as a separate file. E.g.:

bin/ deploy <your-web-app.war> <your-web-app-deployment-plan.xml>

or specify the deployment plan when using deploy with the admin console.

That's an issue with your eclipse project (or the import into Eclipse). Can you describe how
your maven project is defined? A simple sample would be helpful... Not my cup-of-tea. Perhaps
somebody will have an answer for you...
