Subject Re: Deploying war from dependency with tomcat7-maven-plugin
Date Tue, 10 Sep 2013 15:03:40 GMT

I was able to use your examples and specifying the dependencies manually
and got it work nicely.  So I just put Liferay portal web war package into
my webapps section and also enumerated all the dependencies that need to be
available to Embedded tomcat and it worked!  For anyone interested here it
