I'm trying to understand the whole lifecycle of Liberty Profile and Maven ...
The only information used is http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v8r5/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.websphere.wlp.nd.doc%2Fae%2Ftwlp_dev_maven.html and this describes several steps, but still a lot of questions arises...
My project layout is like this
One parent project and two or more child projects
1) Which maven module is supposed to have the liberty profile configuration ? The EAR project ?
2) Whats the difference between install-apps and deploy and package-server ?
My goal is to have a complete setup in the EAR projects pom.xml, så by just check out the whole project from SCM, it's possible to just run mvn install and then the liberty profile server is downloaded from nexus, installed, configured, deployed and started ready to run, in just one command.
Is this possible or am I misunderstanding the whole idea ?
I'm missing a real guide-article on this topic...
