Maven Plugins

Finally, I finished migrating the project from maven 1.x + ant to maven 2. Here are some maven plugins that I found useful.

Maven 2 JBoss Plugin -- You can hotdeploy, start, stop JBoss from maven.
Maven 2 Exec Plugin -- You can invoke system calls or start java programs. I actually use this to call maven itself to install a generated web services client jar file into maven repository.
Maven 2 AntRun Plugin -- This plugin wraps around all ant tasks. A really useful tool if you want to migrate from ant to maven.
