Subject RE: Adding artifacts to local repository - how?
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2004 15:20:38 GMT
Thanks again for the information. I did read the docs for the artifact
plugin ahead of my very first post. Given my background, eagerness to
"get it to work" fast and the fact that at the time I had spent only a
minimal amount of time using maven (less than two hours...), I both
didn't understand and didn't appreciate the importance of the
information on the docs for the plugin - I probably still don't...

I have only a projec.xml file - no maven.xml. I am trying to bite only
as much as I can chew... I have not set any goals and am only using what
is already there. If you tell me that artifact:install is the RIGHT way
of accomplish what I am trying to do (and from both the docs and your
note below, it appears to be), then I will go about learning how to set
my own goals. Expect some more clueless posts!

Thanks for the help.

A.

PS: The "Dependancies without repositories" thread has some info that
addresses the underlying need at my organisation - I found some answers
there.
