Subject Re: Maven Repo for Struts2 2.1.x
Date Mon, 21 Sep 2009 13:30:56 GMT
Frans, for your first question, I don't think we have an 'official'
snapshot repo. If we do, I wouldn't trust it... Recently I was
reconfiguring our hudson builds (nightlies) to use a newer version of
Maven and when the build gets to the step to deploy the snapshots, it
failed quite miserably. It's something I'm going to address when I
have a bit more time. The nightly zips are still available here -

Those zips are up to date. However, if you are comfortable with Maven,
it's pretty easy to build from source. To build, I'll suggest a few
things -

1. Use maven 2.2.1. We recently discovered a problem running a test
within one of the plugins. Using 2.2.1 takes care of the issue.
2. Use Java 6. One of the plugins requires the compiler tools
( which isn't available in 1.5.
3. When you are building, specify -DskipAssembly otherwise it will try
to mirror the docs from the wiki, which will take a lot of bandwidth.

Lastly, at some point today, I am going to point Struts 2's pom files
to xwork 2.1.6 (rather than the snapshot) so you will be able to build
without also building xwork.
