Hi All:

I am new to displaytag and Maven. I download the displaytag-examples from the url "" it is part of the ""
I am using Eclipse 3.5 and Weblogic 11g.
I got all of the artifacts download. I was able to do "Mavern Install" and "Mavern Package" successfully on the project
but I was not able to deploy to weblogic 11g.

In the "displaytag-example" dynamic project. I see the following Problem "Description Resource Path Location Type
The container 'Maven Dependencies' references non existing library 'C:\Documents and Settings\alam\.m2\repository\commons-lang\commons-lang\2.3\commons-lang-2.3.jar' displaytag-examples Build path Build Path Problem
I ran the following command and the jar file was copy to the respective directory under .m2:
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=commons-lang -DartifactId=commons-lang -Dversion=2.3 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/test5/commons-lang-2.3.jar

But I noticed that in the directory C:\Documents and Settings\alam\.m2\repository\commons-lang\commons-lang\2.3 there was only the commons-lang-2.3.jar file but the following files doesnot exist:

This is the result of running the following command:
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=commons-lang -DartifactId=commons-lang -Dversion=2.3 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/test5/commons-lang-2.3.jar
