I am trying to do the example in the Spring in Action 3ed book on p.33 section 2.1.2. I can't get the sample code to output "JUGGLING 3 BEANBAGS".

The book says on p.34 a quarter of the way down, "To give Duke a try, you can load the Spring application context using the following code: "

ApplicationContext ctx = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("com/springinaction/springidol/spring-idol.xml");
Performer performer = (Performer) ctx.getBean("duke");

I added the code snippet above to the main method that I created inside of the Juggler.class. I got an error message. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? Thank you.

Here is the spring-idol.xml configuration file that is given to us:

Here is the parent class Performer:

Here is the child class Juggler:

Here is the error message:

cd C:\Users\MSC\Documents\sia3code\springidol; "JAVA_HOME=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.7.0_40" "\"C:\\Program Files\\NetBeans 7.3.1\\java\\maven\\bin\\mvn.bat\"" "-Dexec.args=-classpath %classpath com.springinaction.springidol.Test" "-Dexec.executable=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.7.0_40\\bin\\java.exe" process-classes org.codehaus.mojo:exec-maven-plugin:1.2.1:exec
Scanning for projects...

Some problems were encountered while building the effective model for com.springinaction:springidol:jar:3.0.0
'build.plugins.plugin.version' for org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin is missing. @ com.springinaction:example-code:3.0.0, C:\Users\MSC\Documents\sia3code\pom.xml, line 23, column 15

It is highly recommended to fix these problems because they threaten the stability of your build.

For this reason, future Maven versions might no longer support building such malformed projects.

If you have your main method in the juggler class, you will have to tell maven to execute the juggler class not the test class

Thanks for your help. I did a clean build, and now I have more error messages relating to maven. I will read up on that. The example was an older version of maven, and my netbeans ide has maven 3.0.5
