Subject Unable to run "empire-db-example-struts2" in Eclipse
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2009 13:46:01 GMT
Hi Francis,

i have followed your work in the mailing-archive for "mavenizing"
Currently I am trying to get the web-example running with tomcat in
eclipse so that I can debug the struts2 web example.

Fortunately I've been successful with that, but I had to do some
handwork. Maybe you can help me with that, as I'm a maven newbe :).

Here is what I've tried so far:

1. Checked out the trunk from SVN with the "Check out as Maven Project
..." option.

2. Executed "mvn eclipse:m2eclipse -Dwtpversion=1.5" in the directory
"empire-db-example-struts2" to make it a WebApp.

3. Activated the Maven-Dependencies under Project "Properties-->Java EE
Module Dependencies"

4. Added Tomcat Server Modules under Project "Properties-->Java Build

If I now start the project with the "Run As--> Run on Server ..."
option, the server doesn't find the dependencies for "empire-db" and

In fact I got it working by building and copying the missing libraries
"empire-db-2.0.5-SNAPSHOT.jar" and "
empire-db-struts2-2.0.5-SNAPSHOT.jar" by hand into the lib folder of the
deployed WebApp.

My Questions are now:
- Do I have to exec "mvn eclipse:m2eclipse -Dwtpversion=1.5", or is
there a easier way to tell eclipse that it is a WebApp?

- Why do I have to copy the dependencies for "empire-db" and
"empire-db-struts2" by hand? I cannot see why they aren't deployed as
they are listed in the pom.xml.

It would be really nice if you could help me out with this.
Thanks in advance.
