Basically i can add a server such as Jboss, Tomcat to eclipse perfectly fine, and if i create a Dynamic Web Project it can be seen by the server and added to it for hot deployments etc, All works great
So heres the prob, I found in order to create a War file with maven, it expects the project to be in a certain structure eg
src/java/main src/java/resources src/java/webapp
And you put all your jsps, WEB_INF ect in the webapp folder.
Which is different to the Dynamic Web Project structure
WebContext or what ever you call the folder is basicaly on the same level as src and you can put the jsps here etc.
Now a project with the maven structure can not be seen by the embedded server in eclipse and so the project cant be added for hot deploments through eclipse, instead i need to do builds etc with maven and drop the war into Tomcat myself or with a script, Anyone know how to get a mavinised Web project added as a project to a server added to eclipse
I have tried both tomcat 6.0, Jboss 4.2 and Jetty-Launcher.
Ok sorry, with further investigation, i now know that it is actually when you use the mvn eclipse:eclipse command to generate source code into an eclipse project that the embedded server in eclipse cant see the project and the eclispe project cant generate a war, Anybody know how to get maven to generate an eclipse Dynamic Web project that can be imported into eclipse and still be seen by a server and still be able to geneartae war from within the ide
I too has that problem and just found a solution. I installed the "Maven Integration for WTP", and the Maven project in eclipse allow you to add the project to the server inside eclipse. The maven project is able to synchronize with the server, and it works as if it is a normal Dynamic Web Project but in a different file structure.
