Exception trying to build using mvn install

Jul 20, 2011 at 7:07 PM

I am getting the following failure trying to use maven to install and build the SDK. I am new to maven so maybe there is just something I missed with the maven installation?

I downloaded the sdk , cd to the directory then typed

mvn install

and get

It looks like you typed mvn install from inside the hv-jaxb project before building the sdk project.

There are several projects in the download:  sdk, hv-jaxb, examples/ui-jaxb, examples/ui-sdk.  They depend on each other like this:

|            |
hv-jaxb    examples/ui-sdk

If you try to build the hv-jaxb project before building the sdk, then you will not be able to resolve that dependency.

Start where you unzipped the download:

> cd healthvault-sdk-1.3.0
> mvn install

The build system will build everything in the correct order to resolve dependencies.

My bad. I was using Maven 3. All fine now, thanks for your help.
