Hi,

i recently tried the above combination for a prototype and all of a sudden the following error appeared:

[codesyntax lang=“java5″]

It took me some time to figure out what happened, but somehow my project settings changed.

To fix this error go to projects properties  -> deployment assembly and add the maven dependencies there to be mapped to WEB-INF/lib.

That’s it, quick fix for a weired thing like change of the settings -.-
