Subject RE: Cactus plugin classpath for compilation
Date Sat, 05 Jun 2004 10:21:41 GMT
Hi Mark,

The cactus plugin for Maven is actually hosted by the Cactus project.
Thus all discussions happen there.
 
See below.

That would be a good structure. However the current version of the
Cactus plugin for Maven does not support running the Cactus plugin at
the level of the EAR project (we need to add support for this). Thus
ATM, you need to run the cactus:test-ear goal at the level of the EJB
project.

True but that's not supported yet.

Just make sure you have a src/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml file in your EJB
project tree (the Cactus requires a war file and at this current it is
not yet able to create a default one all by itself).

When you call cactus:test-ear, the Cactus plugin will then create a WAR
containing your Cactus tests (the creation of the WAR currently requires
a web.xml file - we should actually create one if none exists). Then it
will compile your EJB and package the whole thing in an EAR.

Feel free to send some patch if you want it to work the way you
described (and/or open some JIRA issues).

Thanks
