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
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.
