Subject Difficulty building cactus 1.8.1-S eclipse 3.3 plug-in
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 14:49:26 GMT
What I'm trying to do is run JUnit on my Tomcat server in Eclipse so I 
can test applications that use pooled JNDI database connections. That 
seems to mean I need cactus.

I was trying to follow the instructions kindly provided by Petar in the 
mail at
which almost worked nicely, except the stage where maven tried to get 
the jars for cargo and cactus.build tools.

The files it need were at

and the instructions in the error made it easy to install them, but 
could one or both of you (Petar and codehaus) make a change to the 
reference to or location of the files such that this just works?

I haven't got cactus built yet (*)-- I can't find something extra to 
just download or check out at jakarta.apache.org/cactus (not 
cactus.apache.org as per the jar). I guess it's something to do with 
I'll have to look at the maven docs as I have no idea how it works. I am 
running Debian 4.0 and downloaded maven 2.0.9 into my home directory: I 
run it with ~/apache-maven-2.0.9/bin/mvn

So close to getting it working...

Many thanks,

p.s. I couldn't find a contact email for codehaus, so I just guessed.

(*) I get the error

1) org.apache.cactus:cactus.build.tools:jar:1.8.1-SNAPSHOT

  Try downloading the file manually from the project website.

  Then, install it using the command:
      mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.cactus 
-DartifactId=cactus.build.tools -Dversion=1.8.1-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar 

  Alternatively, if you host your own repository you can deploy the file 
      mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=org.apache.cactus 
-DartifactId=cactus.build.tools -Dversion=1.8.1-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar 
-Dfile=/path/to/file -Durl=[url] -DrepositoryId=[id]

  Path to dependency:
        1) org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-checkstyle-plugin:maven-plugin:2.1
        2) org.apache.cactus:cactus.build.tools:jar:1.8.1-SNAPSHOT
