Subject Re: New tomcat plugin
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2002 15:36:31 GMT
Since no-one's replied... here it is. The zip is the source, to go in 
jakarta-turbine-maven/src/plugins-build, the jar should work if dropped 
into your plugins directory. Since there is no catalina-ant.jar in 
ibiblio, you will need to get one for yourself- download a release from:

and copy 'CATALINA_HOME/server/lib/catalina-ant.jar' to 

To use it in a project, add something like this to your
maven.tomcat.url = http://freedonia:8080/manager
maven.tomcat.username = flywheel
maven.tomcat.password = swordfish
(read the tomcat manager how-to!!)

and type:
maven tomcat:deploy

Your webapp will be built and deployed onto the server. There are xdocs 
for everything if you want more details.

The plugin depends on a jar from TC 4.1.12, but some of the manager app 
functions will work fine on earlier tomcats - see your server docs for 

CAVEAT: this is not an official plugin, so don't rely on this for 
production scripts unless you're happy that this copy is all you need.


BTW: Is there a reason why there's no 'plugin' plugin? Seems like most 
of the plugin maven.xml's are the same?
