Okay, I have learned a little more from documentation and trial & error efforts.
Using Maven, I am unable to build the Spring Web Flow jars with the exception of spring-js-resource. Is this unusual?
Spring Web Flow Project jars
Using Maven, I can build all the sample projects, but only 2 run in Tomcat. Do the others require a different container/server?
Spring Web Flow Samples
run fail: booking-portlet-faces
run fail: booking-portlet-mvc
run fail: jsf-booking
The very same projects in Eclipse show many errors. I am using Eclipse version "Helios Service Release 1" with the Spring IDE and Spring STS. Are there a compatibility issues with my version of Eclipse?
I will work my way through the Web Flow reference doc:
and other docs on http://www.springsource.org/documentation.
If there is an easier way to learn Spring Web Flow, I will greatly appreciate some advice.
Are there detail instructions to assist with building and learning Spring Web Flow 2.2.1?
I am new to the Spring Framework and I need to learn Spring Web Flow. I have downloaded Spring Web Flow version 2.2.1 and failed to build with: Ant/Ivy, Maven, and Eclipse. I have modified the Ivy settings file, Maven POM, and Eclipse project classpath following notes from http://static.springsource.org/sprin...l/ch01s06.html.
Examples of some errors.
Error: Ant/Ivy for booking-faces:
org.primefaces#primefaces;2.2.M1-SNAPSHOT: not found
Error: Maven for spring-bindings:
package org.jboss.el does not exist
Error: Maven for spring-faces:
cannot find symbol
symbol : class ExpressionFactoryImpl
location: class org.springframework.binding.expression.el.ELExpres sionParserTests
org.apache.myfaces.test.base does not exist
Errors: Eclipse numerous errors...
I downloaded about 13 dependencies and put them in the Ivy-cache then added them to the project classpath.
There are numerous build errors.
Thanks for whatever resources you can point me towards, to get started with learning and using Spring Web Flow.
