plugin

I have managed to fix the manager application and am able to deploy war as
expected through gui. However, could someone explain how the cargo plugin
uses the manager? How does it find it? I don't see any documentation or
examples that document explicit local server configuration. Must my local
instance be running before using mvn tomcat:deploy from CLI?

Subject: Maven 2 configuration for JSF2 compatible version of tomcat plugin

Hello,

Maven is extremely difficult to grasp when looking for appropriate
documentation. My builder (IDEA) has excellent maven support and I am trying
to create a JSF2/maven project....
I attempt to use the cargo maven plugin as documented, but it would appear
that this requires me to have knowledge beforehand on how to configure my
local-tomcat to be configured to be used by the plugin.
Also, the tomcat 7 is not allowing me use the manager app which is deployed,
but refuses the username “tomcat” and password “tomcat” although my
users-xml is defined as follows:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

      <user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
      <user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
    -->
    <role rolename="manager-gui"/>
    <role rolename="manager-script"/>
    <user password="tomcat" roles="manager-gui, manager-script"
username="tomcat"/>
</tomcat-users>

I get a 401 when attempting to deploy using CLI for maven, but any number of
reasons could be the cause as I feel plugin documentation for cargo is
incomplete.

MY Pom.xml is as follows with the settings.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Maven
|                 users on a machine (assuming they're all using the same

    <!-- profiles
    | This is a list of profiles which can be activated in a variety of
ways, and which can modify
    | the build process. Profiles provided in the settings.xml are intended
to provide local machine-
    | specific paths and repository locations which allow the build to work
in the local environment.
    |
    | For example, if you have an integration testing plugin - like cactus -
that needs to know where
    | your Tomcat instance is installed, you can provide a variable here
such that the variable is
    | dereferenced during the build process to configure the cactus plugin.
    |
    | As noted above, profiles can be activated in a variety of ways. One
way - the activeProfiles
    | section of this document (settings.xml) - will be discussed later.
Another way essentially
    | relies on the detection of a system property, either matching a
particular value for the property,
    | or merely testing its existence. Profiles can also be activated by JDK
version prefix, where a
    | value of '1.4' might activate a profile when the build is executed on
a JDK version of '1.4.2_07'.
    | Finally, the list of active profiles can be specified directly from
the command line.
    |
    | NOTE: For profiles defined in the settings.xml, you are restricted to
specifying only artifact
    |       repositories, plugin repositories, and free-form properties to
be used as configuration
    |       variables for plugins in the POM.
    |
    |-->
    <profiles>
        <!-- profile
         | Specifies a set of introductions to the build process, to be
activated using one or more of the
         | mechanisms described above. For inheritance purposes, and to
activate profiles via <activatedProfiles/>
         | or the command line, profiles have to have an ID that is unique.
         |
         | An encouraged best practice for profile identification is to use
a consistent naming convention
         | for profiles, such as 'env-dev', 'env-test', 'env-production',
'user-jdcasey', 'user-brett', etc.
         | This will make it more intuitive to understand what the set of
introduced profiles is attempting
         | to accomplish, particularly when you only have a list of profile
id's for debug.
         |
         | This profile example uses the JDK version to trigger activation,
and provides a JDK-specific repo.
        <profile>
          <id>jdk-1.4</id>

          <activation>
            <jdk>1.4</jdk>
          </activation>

          <repositories>
            <repository>
              <id>jdk14</id>

          </repositories>
        </profile>
        -->

        <!--
         | Here is another profile, activated by the system property
'target-env' with a value of 'dev',
         | which provides a specific path to the Tomcat instance. To use
this, your plugin configuration
         | might hypothetically look like:
         |
         | ...

If someone could kindly help me I would greatly appreciate. I am ill with a
brain tumor and trying to get my programming career on track again so please
go easy on me.

I am open to using Jetty too as the documentation seems better, but current
projects are using tomcat.
