Subject Re: Deploying war from dependency with tomcat7-maven-plugin
Date Tue, 10 Sep 2013 06:19:59 GMT
for 1) your jars must be in the plugin dependencies section (see jdbc
driver here
for 2) I understand you simply want to run a war (and maybe run unit
tests) so unpacking with the dependency looks to be the solution.
