Spring – ClassNotFound W/ Spring using Eclipse Tomcat Maven M2Eclipse

eclipsem2eclipsemavenspringtomcat

Sorry I am new to this stack overflow stuff so pardon the long error message at the bottom.

I am trying to deploy a project called BroadLeaf to a Tomcat 7 server using eclipse. I have installed M2Eclipse/WTP Integration. I run a maven configuration (through eclipse) with clean package as the goals. Then I do a refresh and try to start the server, however, it fails.

UPDATE: I am trying to deploy the project found here… https://broadleaf.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/broadleaf/trunk/BroadleafCommerce/site/BroadleafCommerceDemo/pom.xml

Any ideas?

Best Solution

The problem appears to be with WTP not integrating properly with the maven dependancies. Not the best solution I fixed the issue by....

  1. in eclipse right click on the project and go to properties
  2. Go to deployment assembly
  3. click add
  4. Select Java Build path entries
  5. select all the M2_HOME entries.
  6. Clean build and deploy project DO NOT USE THE M2ECLIPSE PLUGIN WITH ECLIPSE:ECLIPSE!
  7. Should get you around the error.

Anyone know the real solution?

UPDATE: Also the next time I imported WTP seemed to vibe with Maven, so maybe delete and reimport your project after installing the plugin?
