    Info - Creating Seam project in Maven 2

    Dan Dosch Newbie

      A few months ago I setup a Seam project using Maven. There was very limited amount of Maven/Seam documentation and what was available didn't work. Looking back I thought I'd share how I accomplished this. I haven't really checked to see if there is more info for Maven now.


      Below is a working Maven configuration. My goal with this configuration was simply to mirror exactly the default build.xml that seam-gen creates. I am quite certain that many of the exclusions are not necessary, and that many improvements could be made to this. That being said, here is something to get you started with Maven and Seam.



      I have my project setup as 4 Maven modules



      • ProjectName

      • ProjectName-ear

      • ProjectName-jar

      • ProjectName-war




      ProjectName's pom.xml


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
           <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
           <groupId>com.company.component</groupId>
           <artifactId>projectName</artifactId>
           <version>1.0.0-1-SNAPSHOT</version>
           <name>${project.version} ${artifactId}</name>
           <description>A web interface for ...</description>
           <packaging>pom</packaging>
           <modules>
                <module>projectName-ear</module>
                <module>projectName-jar</module>
                <module>projectName-war</module>
           </modules>
      </project>

              You will notice alot of exclusions. While many of them may not be necessary, many of them are. JBoss has its own set of Jars that will be used at runtime. If you do not exclude them, when the project runs the jars in the project will be used instead of the JBoss versions. This can lead to the jars conflicting due to incorrect versions.

                Could you also just specify the dependencies with a provided scope (<scope>provided</scope>) so that they won't conflict that the JBoss .jars at runtime?

                  I'm a bit confused by this.  I thought maven was a build tool, how do the exclusions and dependencies get managed after deployment?  If I build with maven will the resultant artifact be structured differently than if I built with ant?
