I'm working on a small architectural spike, and I want the ability to run my WAR project in a container. In past projects, I've configured Cargo's Maven 2 plugin to launch Tomcat, both for manual testing and for integration tests. While I don't really need integration tests on this spike, I prefer to have the build-integrated option to launch a container rather than deploying the WAR to a container manually.
- The home page lists the 'current version' of the Maven2 Plugin as "0.3", despite the fact that that version is a year old, and there's been a series of alphas and now betas since then.
- The 'news' section is even older, showing that 'Version 0.2' of the cargo-maven2-plugin has been released, same as the announcements mailing list.
- Although Cargo seems to use different version numbers for its various components, their Jira is configured with a Cargo project and the Maven2 plugin as a component. In order to address the overlapping version space, they've created versions like 1.0-maven2.
