Well, it would not surprise me if in your fileset

all jars needed by xdoclet, it should have worked just fine

this i m sure it works becaue in my dependencies there is all that xdoclet
need to run the task.
If in your lib directory you h ave all xdoclet-xxx-module.jar as well as
xjavadoc, i see no reason of why your code above hsould not work
again,, any maven expert here can condraddict and give feedback, i m no
guru...i have just learned things from trying them out (and failing :) )

mmm, this scopes confuse me too... in your dependencies, try to put
this assumes that at runtime those libraries are alredy present (if i m
correct), and thus maven won't include them in yoru war (it worked for me
while building an .ear..)

(3) Why are you the packaging phase insteed of the generate-sources phase ?

ah! ignore it...i had problems wtih dependencies.... but it might have been
due to the fact that i had incorrect classpath
it should work also with <phase>generate-sources</phase>
but i haven't tried....have no time unfortunately.....  i m not using maven
at work, so i have to use it in my spare time and nowadays i have very
little spare time
you might want to try and see if you have classpath problem....


Thanks again,
