    Seam 3 examples

    Arbi Sookazian Master

      So I finally downloaded and extracted Maven 3, JBoss 6.0-final and Seam 3.0-CR1.  Good job guys!

      Whatever happened to the build.xml ant script (from Weld) with the macrodef tag that allows ant to hook into maven?  When I ran

      mvn clean install

      for the helloworld example app, the WAR file was not automatically copied to the JBoss /server/default/deploy directory as I expected (yes, I'm lazy).  either that or use maven's antrun plugin to use the ant copy task:

          It seems you have a problem with your internet connection or DNS? (based on this snippet from your log):

          Error transferring file: repository.jboss.org: Unknown host repository.jboss.org

          Also, to deploy to JBoss AS you can use the jboss:hard-deploy goal in Maven - I think you just have to set up the JBOSS_HOME environment variable for this to work.

            Thanks Shane.  The internet connection was indeed spotty last nite, so perhaps that's the root cause there.

            I have heard of the jboss:hard-deploy goal, but that will simply copy the WAR/EAR.  For exploded deployments (which is what is/was recommended with Seam 2 and assuming with Seam 3 during development), I don't think Maven has anything helpful.

            I'm using a custom ant script (build.xml) for my current project that hooks into maven via <macrodef> tag.  Here is that particular target for unzipping:

            <target name="unzip">
                      <echo message="**************Beginning unzip target..."/>
                      <echo message="Base directory is ${basedir}" />     
                      <mkdir dir="${basedir}\target\${ear.app.name}\temp"/>
                      <unzip src="${basedir}\com.echo.cis.gui.ear\target\${ear.app.name}\${war.app.name}.war" dest="${basedir}\target\${ear.app.name}\temp"/>
                      <delete file="${basedir}\com.echo.cis.gui.ear\target\${ear.app.name}\${war.app.name}.war"/>
                      <mkdir dir="${basedir}\com.echo.cis.gui.ear\target\${ear.app.name}\${war.app.name}.war"/>
                      <copy todir="${basedir}\com.echo.cis.gui.ear\target\${ear.app.name}\${war.app.name}.war">
                           <fileset dir="${basedir}\target\${ear.app.name}\temp" />
                      <delete dir="${basedir}\target\${ear.app.name}\temp"/>

            and the explode target:

            <target name="explode" depends="showproperties, clean, install, unzip" description="Runs mvn clean install and then unzips the EAR/WAR and copies to JBoss deploy directory">
                      <echo message="**************Beginning explode target..."/>
                      <echo message="**************maven.profile = ${maven.profile}"/>
                      <mkdir dir="${jboss.home}/server/${jboss.profile}/deploy/${ear.app.name}.ear" />
                      <copy todir="${jboss.home}/server/${jboss.profile}/deploy/${ear.app.name}.ear">
                           <fileset dir="${artifact.dir}" />
                          <format property="now" pattern="MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss" locale="en,US"/>  
                      <echo message="Current datetime: ${now}"/>
                      <echo message="The app can be accessed at ${final.url}" />

            I'm wondering if Maven 3 has functionality that will accommodate this type of deployment...

              I am having the same question as Arbi. Has anybody a solution or answer to his question? For the moment (with seam2, maven structure) we are also  using a specific ant task to do our exploding of our EAR.
              It would be nice to add this kind of functionality (hot deployment) to the seam 3 examples.

                There seems to be a POM.xml problem with a number of the seam 3 examples distributed with 3.0.0.Final.
                The dependency for JSF fails to specify a <version> tag and consequently the initial step of the maven downloads fails.  Because of that failure, succeeding steps fail and generated a very imposing list of failures.

                If you insert a valid version tag after line 89 of the pom.xml for security-idmconsole the maven commands will now execute.

                  I should also add that my solution may be a work around for a dependancy lookup that should be working without the version tag.

                  I am only just learning maven as a result of test drives of seam 3.

                  If there is a better solution than my workaround I encourage others to speak up.
