I am not sure what the problem is with the build of 1.0.0, since I explicitly emptied my ~/.m2/repository directory before building the modules, and the samples. For instance, the JTA jar can be found at: https://springframework.svn.sourcefo...on/jta/1.0.1B/
If you have any building errors, please report a JIRA issue at http://opensource.atlassian.com/proj...ing/browse/SWS, and I will try and fix them.
I can now build and run the example from the 1.0.0 delivery after removing my m2 repository. :)
