I'm converting an ant build to a maven build using eclipse (helios) and jdk 1.6.21. I've searched this error and the results are repleat with only one 'fix' to it which is to make sure the web.xml is in the /src/main/webapp/WEB-INF folder. The apps web.xml is there and I've even added a specific webxml tag to my pom to no avail. I'm really banging my head against a wall with this error and any insight would be appreciated
Command line build using "mvn clean package -Plocal" fails though the same options in eclipse build configurations does complete the package with a console warning. I've been tweeking my pom.xml, web.xml and even tried directory structure but just can't get this error/warning to clear...
For all things there is a first time

I've 'solved' this issue and I'm posting for anyone else who may have been seeing the same thing.
As it turns out I wasn't doing anything incorrectly there was a wiring issue somewhere with maven.
I deleted my entire local .m2 repository and reloaded dependencies... viola! Error cleared.
