Using Embedded Resin as a Development Container

I recently read this article and realised that I had never blogged about the resin plugin that works perfectly with lift for development and deployment.

Heres what you need to add to your pom.xml

    <build>
   ...
   <finalname>${project.name}</finalname>
   ...

      <plugin>
        <groupid>com.caucho</groupid>
        <artifactid>resin-maven-plugin</artifactid>
        <version>3.1.6</version>
        <configuration>
          <contextpath>/</contextpath>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
    ...
</build>

<pluginrepositories>
...
<pluginrepository>
  <id>caucho</id>
  <name>Caucho</name>
  <url>http://caucho.com/m2</url>
</pluginrepository>
...
</pluginrepositories>

Note, the final name var is important, as thats what resin uses to point at. Dont worry tho, as lift already has a name element so provided you haven't deleted it, your laughing.

Next, to boot the server, just do:

    mvn resin:run

That should be it! Enjoy!
