Re: [m2e-users] EAR, RAD, m2e

Hi Sander,

could you please provide the versions of the product you are using. Apparently, if you are on 8.5.1 RAD have you checked the infocenter about the maven integration - http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/radhelp/v8r5/topic/com.ibm.etools.maven.doc/topics/maven_intro.html - this is a new feature as from v8.5.1 in RAD. We are still on 8.5.0 and are using the m2e + m2e-wtp plugins manually installed. The most important part to make the deployment to WAS WTE work is either to follow the recommendations for maven project configuration as described in the link above OR to use the maven native name conventions for the artifacts, however in this case only "Publish to server with resources on server" does work (otherwise you get NoClassDefFoundErrors or similar at publish time). And after version changes we have to make "Clean" on the server to get everything updated - we've opened PMR for this with IBM but we haven't got resolution yet.
As for import maven project - we've tried it only from SVN with the provided maven-subclipse-connector. Here we have the issue that if you try this from the Package Explorer you get some weird error, but if you try this directly in the SVN explorer view everything works, which is ok for us at the moment.

Hope this helps a bit,

Hi all,

I searched through this list's archives, I browsed the web, I played with IBM's examples ("RAD_m2e-Nov(update Jun 2012).pdf"), but I'm still at a loss. The group's help would be much appreciated!

I have a multi-module Maven project that ultimately builds into EAR files, containing EJBs, WARs and utility JARs. I'm focusing on a specific EAR and trying to move from command-line to RAD.

I could not find a comprehensive tutorial or anything pertaining to EAR files and running WTP server (Servers tab). So that would be a help, or your suggestions for my specific issue would be a great help and much appreciated!

Following works:
- Command-line: cd ..._EAR; mvn clean install; "Import EAR file" (i.e. binary) in RAD; drag the project to my WAS/WTP server (Servers tab)

Following doesn't work:
- "Import Existing Maven Projects" (i.e. source project) in RAD; drag the project to my WAS/WTP server (Servers tab)

It finally fails with the following error:
[7/19/13 14:16:50:115 PDT] 00001808 InstallSchedu I   ADMA5014E: The installation of application MYCOMPANY_SERVICE_CUSTOMER_EAR failed.
[7/19/13 14:16:50:115 PDT] 00001808 SystemErr     R org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.commonarchivecore.internal.exception.NoModuleFileException: A file does not exist for module element having uri: MYCOMPANY_EXCEPTIONS.jar

However, it appears that this dependency is nicely referenced from the org.eclipse.wst.common.component file:

<dependent-module archiveName="MYCOMPANY_EXCEPTIONS.jar" deploy-path="/" handle="module:/classpath/var/M2_REPO/com/my-company/java/utility/MYCOMPANY_EXCEPTIONS/0.0.1-XXX/MYCOMPANY_EXCEPTIONS-0.0.1-XXX.jar">

There is also a bunch of errors that I that I don't know what to do with, as follows: E org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.commonarchivecore.internal.strategy.LoadStrategyImpl openNestedArchive(String) An error occurred while opening a nested archive: IWAE0023E Unable to open module file "commons-beanutils-core.jar" in EAR file "C:/workspace/xxx/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0\MYCOMPANY_SERVICE_CUSTOMER_EAR"

There is also a bunch of warnings that I chose to ignore for now, as follows: W org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.commonarchivecore.internal.impl.EARFileImpl openNestedArchive - module An error occurred while opening a nested archive: IWAE0006E Archive is not a valid Application Client JAR File because the deployment descriptor can not be found (case sensitive): META-INF/application-client.xml

This is the EAR plugin configuration that I'm using:


As said, your help is much appreciated! Best regards, Sander.
