SOLVED

unable to get maven to compile JSPs

marshalll270490

Hi,

I'm using AEM 5.6.1 and I've followed the instructions on http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/aem-how-tos/development/how-to-build-aem-projects-using-apache-maven.h....

I'm trying to get my JSPs to compile as the "content" project of my multi-module project. Because some of my JSPs reference /libs/foundation/global.jsp, I had to include that file in the compilation. And because one of my JSPs overrides one of the /libs/foundations/components JSPs, I had to include that, too, which of course introduced a bunch of additional dependencies that I needed to resolve.

I painstakingly added the necessary dependencies to the pom.xml file, attempting to build each time and using the "depfind" feature to figure out which one to add every time I got a compilation error that a particular class could not be resolved. I finally got all of the class resolution errors sorted out.

Now I'm faced with new errors where the compiler can't resolve, among other things, "xssAPI," which seems to be referenced from many JSPs but never actually defined anywhere. The errors are shown below. Any ideas? I'd really like to get this to work, as my next step is to get JSP auto-complete to work in Eclipse. But even just having it work in the maven build would be a good start. This is Adobe's out-of-the-box stuff for the most part!

Personally I have never used jspc to compile my jsps during build time due to some reasons. I tried it today and it seems to be working for me with following dependencies

Hello,

XssAPI should be part of /libs/foundation/global.jsp. Can you please make sure that you have <%@include file="/libs/foundation/global.jsp"%> included in your JSP file. 

Are you trying to compile your JSP from eclipse or as part of build ? Or you are getting this error while rendering a page after deployment ? Trying to understand pom.xml role here for jsp.

I am indeed including /libs/foundation/global.jsp in my own JSPs. I don't see xssAPI defined directly in global.jsp. If it is defined via the <cq:defineObjects /> tag, please let me know what I need to include in order to resolve xssAPI.

Thanks

Yes xssAPI is part of <cq:defineObjects /> which is already included in /libs/foundation/global.jsp so, including /libs/foundation/global.jsp should work.

http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/javadoc/com/day/cq/wcm/tags/DefineObjectsTag.html

Can you add

<dependency>

<groupId>com.day.cq.wcm</groupId>

<artifactId>cq-wcm-taglib</artifactId>

<version>5.6.4</version>

<scope>provided</scope>

</dependency>

In your pom.xml to see if it help to resolve compilation issue during build. Note that this is added in later version of CQ so if you are trying to reference old version of cq-wcm-taglib you might not find it.

Ha, believe me, I've got every conceivable dependency in there. Here's my main pom.xml (the content project's pom.xml has the corresponding entries).
