Subject RE: Best approach in using maven w/ eclipse
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2005 02:42:54 GMT

I don't know if it's of any interest to you, but I managed to use the
newly released WTP ( )to do just that.

I like WTP a lot as with my setup it seems much faster/stable than myEclipse
for jsp editing.

Moreover the deployement is much closer to a real one because it allows
you to build the dependant jars and use the maven repository, as maven would do, 
but within eclipse.

With WTP you get a real build process to a have a working webapp
(copy files across, assemble jar, copy maven dependencies).

WTP also deploys the webapp to the webserver of your choice (tomcat included)

But it doesn't come free, you have to configure this build process in a new
format (.wtpmodules). It's still a bit of a pain to configure, but I think it's worth the

What would be nice is to have either the eclipse maven plugin or 
the mevenide eclipse plugin updated to generate/synchronize those .wtpmodules for you.
