This is the new home for the Tomcat Maven Plugin (previously hosted at Codehaus).
Version 2.1 has the following new features:
More details in Generated changelog from issue tracker.
The Tomcat Maven Plugin provides goals to manipulate WAR projects within the Apache Tomcat servlet container.
Or to run your war project with an embedded Apache Tomcat. The run goals give you the opportunity to quickly develop your application without needing to install a standalone Tomcat instance. More details and features: see documentation.
Since version 2.0-beta-1 tomcat mojos has been renamed to tomcat6 and tomcat7 with the same goals.
You must configure your pom to use this new groupId:
<pluginManagement> <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>org.apache.tomcat.maven</groupId> <artifactId>tomcat6-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>2.1</version> </plugin> <plugin> <groupId>org.apache.tomcat.maven</groupId> <artifactId>tomcat7-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>2.1</version> </plugin> </plugins> </pluginManagement>
Or add the groupId in your settings.xml
<pluginGroups> .... <pluginGroup>org.apache.tomcat.maven</pluginGroup> .... </pluginGroups>
Some goals are not yet available with the tomcat7 mojo. Those container goals are available with the tomcat6 mojo, you only need to update the manager url in your pom.
Use http://localhost:8080/manager/text rather than the default tomcat6 url.
