I used the struts2-core version 2.2.1 and also added a maven-jetty-plugin for running the web application. But when i run mvn jetty:run, the following error is found.
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Javassist library is missing in classpath! Please add missed dependency!
It is found that in struts2-core version 2.2.1, the Javassist dependency was excluded in OGNL. So i have to add this dependency in the pom.xml by myself.
Normally, the maven-jetty-plugin should be configured in the pom of your Maven webapp project/module. But the project i am working is a legacy Java project with many modules and the webapp module depends on others. so i cannot simply start it due to the build sequence.
What i am going to do is to add an new Maven module for integration test of the Maven webapp module and it would be build in the last module such that all other modules are ready. Continue reading →
If you are a Tapestry user, the pom.xml in the above article may not work as the webapp cannot be started in the Embedded Jetty (404 Not Found). I am not sure the reason behind but i find a work around to solve the problem. The tricky thing is in the Embedded Jetty configuration in the cargo2-maven-plugin. Continue reading →
In this article, i will show you how to integrate the Selenium tests into a Maven webapp project using the selenium-maven-plugin and cargo-maven2-plugin.
In this example, i used JUnit as the testing framework. There is no problem if you use TestNG to replace JUnit. This example is a simple Java webapp Maven project which only shows a simple html page (index.jsp). During the build, a Selenium Server is started with the webapp deployed in the Embedded Jetty. It then runs an Unit Test (Selenium Test) during the Maven integration-test life cycle. Here comes to the code. Continue reading →
It is possible to add other Maven repositories which is specified explicitly in the pom.xml using the <repositories> node. But if you have a Maven Repository Manager like Archiva, you should configure those remote Maven repostories in Archiva instead of adding them in the pom.xml Continue reading →
I always think that building a good developing environment for developers are essential in terms of efficiency as well as quality. maven-jetty-plugin let you run the webapp without deploying the .war to Java web container and run debug mode directly in the Eclipse IDE. Continue reading →
