Testing

Here's how you can help us test the distribution prior to a vote.

Download a the distribution assemblies:

Configure a <repository> for Maven 2:

        <repository>
           <id>myfaces-114-staging</id>
           <name>Apache MyFaces Core 1.1.4 Staging Repository</name>
           <url>http://people.apache.org/builds/myfaces/core-1.1.4/m2-staging-repository</url>
        </repository>

And declare dependencies on the 1.1.4 artifacts:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.myfaces.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>myfaces-api</artifactId>
            <version>1.1.4</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.myfaces.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>myfaces-impl</artifactId>
            <version>1.1.4</version>
        </dependency>

Note: Maven 2.0.4 will not download a new version if one is already present in your local repository. You will need to delete $M2_REPO/org/apache/myfaces/core to force Maven to download the new version. (Usually, $M2_REPO is <your home directory>/.m2/repository .)

Then, let us know the results (good or bad!) on dev -at- myfaces.apache.org. (You must be subscribed to post. See: http://myfaces.apache.org/mail-lists.html.)
