Dear all,

I have some libraries which existe in .m2/repository. But when I start my Tomcat server, I always get the errors that the application did not find these libraries. I have to copy manually these libraries to WEB-INF/lib folder.

How can these libraries be deployed automatically to WEB-INF/lib folder?

Thank you.

Have you declared your libraries as dependencies in your pom.xml? If not: you should because then Maven will take care copying your libs.

In your Maven dependencies, what scope did you use? For a "compile" scope, Mavne places the JAR into WEB-INF/lib, for "provided" it does not place the JARs there.

Hi Peter, how can I check what scope I am using?

hello,

if you've Maven configured, you can just execute command

mvn compile



in root of your maven project (folder that contains pom.xml), but if you're using like eclipse plugin for maven :

- Run As
- Run Configuration
- New Maven Build
- in "Goals" type "compile"

In your pom you define your dependency e.g. like:


If you are ommitting the scope-tag the default scope (=compile) is used. See also here.
