Maven Failure during the build: assembly.xml file needed

I'm attempting to build a bundle using the Nuxeo IDE.

Everything seemed to install and configure correctly, however when I manually try to run maven on the POM file I get and error about maven looking for an assembly.xml file. I have not been able to find any reference to the appropriate assembly.xml configuration file layout/format. I understand what the assembly.xml file does so I don't need a definition, I need a reference to what it should contain if it is needed for Nuxeo dm.

Is this file needed? Or have I set up something incorrectly in the Nuxeo IDE setup?

Log of maven run and POM file follow:

[karl@BES nuxeo-platform-zaxis-mail-web]$

ANSWER



You have the wrong parent project.

The nuxeo-distribution-tomcat project uses nuxeo's distribution tools to package a whole distribution, not a single bundle, and it uses the assembly.xml to define a set of ant targets for building the dist dir.

Just use nuxeo-features-parent as parent and everything should work:

  <parent>
    <groupId>org.nuxeo.ecm.platform</groupId>
    <artifactId>nuxeo-features-parent</artifactId>
    <version>5.5</version>
  </parent>

You should probably take a look at some sample projects like this or use Nuxeo IDE.
