[virgo-dev] Developing with Virgo Using Maven/m2Eclipse

Hello, all --

I'm looking to develop a Java webapp with the potential for modular component delivery, and to accomplish that I'd like to be able to use OSGi and Virgo to allow me to segregate my JSPs into the discrete modules. The app itself is greenfield so I have no need to actually ship a war file, and we can just rely on Virgo to do the deploy from jar bundles.

However, the build structure at my company is traditionally Maven, using the m2Eclipse plug-in to do use the Maven-configured builds inside Eclipse. This is useful because we can use an integrated Tomcat server to quickly deploy and check our webapp development. I'm curious if anyone has tried doing Maven-m2Eclipse-Virgo development before, and if so, if there's a set of best practices or canonical configurations I can look at before I dive into this. I'm already trying to get GreenPages to build inside an Eclipse workspace since that seems like it might do what I need.

If there isn't an m2Eclipse way of doing this, what's the preferred way for doing builds/deploys and debugging Virgo webapps through Eclipse?

Any help is appreciated.
