JBoss Java EE 6 spec dependency in Maven

Adam Bien wrote about the Troubled with the crippled Java EE 6 APIs in Maven and a solution for them. Another solution has presented itself now that JBoss has finalized the Java EE 6 spec pom and added it to their public repositories as of early January 2011.

You can include the spec in your own project by adding the following to your pom.xml :

<dependency>
	<groupId>org.jboss.spec</groupId>
	<artifactId>jboss-javaee-6.0</artifactId>
	<version>1.0.0.Final</version>
	<type>pom</type>
</dependency>

You may also need to add the JBoss repository to your pom.xml which is defined as :

<repositories>
	<repository>
		<id>repository.jboss.org</id>
		<name>JBoss Repository</name>
		<url>http://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/</url>
	</repository>
</repositories>

I’ll be adding this pom to the Knappsack archetypes to resolve some of the issues people have been facing with the broken spec dependency.
