Hi All,

I have tried to create Scala Lift Project since last 1-2 week but every time I was getting some error. Sometimes having maven Archetype null pointer, some times build error not having all dependent jar using maven project in Eclipse IDE. Please let me know how can I create sample web application using Scala Lift with Eclipse IDE.

Thanks, Nishan Patel

Sorry - I haven't used Lift yet. Have you tried following the instructions for creating Lift projects for the Scala IDE (Eclipse)?

The Lift documentation seems a bit patchy/confusing to me, but it may be easier to start out using the command-line (SBT) to create your Lift project, then convert it to an Eclipse project - that seems to be the approach in the online cookbook.

No more Blub for me, thank you, Vicar.

Thanks for you reply...I have tried everything they have listed on the web using SBT and using maven archetype, but everytime I am getting some error. I found it's poor documentation for Scala lift.

I agree. Here's the link:
