How to run OpenEJB Examples?

I downloaded the stuff at http://openejb.apache.org/download.html and started the openejb standalone server.

I then tried following the instructions at http://openejb.apache.org/3.0/simple-stateless-example.html

I cannot get anything to run. I have maven 2.1 installed. I cannot find any instructions that say I have to define symbols like OPENEJB_HOME.


I'm using cygwin on XP. Adding the openejb directory to the classpath did not seem to help.

I saw a build.xml file and tried ant but that did not work either! I believe I have the latest Java 1.6 SDK.

Can someone kindly tell me how to make these examples run! Thanks!

CLASSPATH=..\\..\\..\\standalone-server\\openejb-3.1\\openejb-3.1\\lib/\*.jar mvn clean install

This line looks highly suspect. First off, in the classpath you can't use wildcards - you need to list each and every jar file individually. And secondly, you don't need to set the classpath for running Maven - it does all that by itself.

What happens if you just type "mvn clean install"? I just downloaded the examples, typed that line, and -after downloading a large number of artifacts- it did exactly what the instructions said it'd do (build and install the example, that is).

Problem fixed by renaming the local maven repository to save.m2. Thanks!
