Maven plugin for JAXWS tools, again!

Back in March 2010 I wrote about our JBossWS Maven plugin for running JAXWS tools (wsconsume and wsprovide). The plugin allows embedding tools' invocation into user Maven projects, so that given a wsdl contract you can e.g. automatically generate stub classes and interfaces for a ws endpoint you want to implement or for an endpoint you want to build a client for.
Yesterday I cut a micro 1.1.1.Final release of the plugin (, which is available on the usual JBoss Maven repository. You're welcome to go and try it.
On that purpose, I've written a small sample project showing how a user project can actually use the wsconsume plugin. It's available on the wiki, have a look and see how easy it's to use it! :-)

I can't get wsconsume to work using EAP 6.0.1 (using jbossws cxf stack that comes w/ the eap repo:

Complains about gnu-getopt not found. I see it in the eap repo but only as "-redhat-x" instead of just version 1.0.13. For some reason it won't take the public one and requires that this version 1.0.13 must be downloaded only from eap repo. Any suggestions? I have similar ticket w/ redhat on the issue.

sorry for the late processing of your comment. Can you let me know the ticket you opened at Red Hat for the issue and / or post on the JBossWS user forum with more details on the issue / error you get? I'd like to understand if this is something that can be worked around with maven exclusions / inclusions and if it's reproducible in the testsuite for EAP. Btw, is this still a problem with EAP 6.1 or greater?

I've never had so much trouble getting a Maven plugin to work. Dependency hell!

1.1.1.Final is the only version of this plugin I could find in the Maven Nexus repository. Sadly I get an error running it (missing dependencies).

Regarding the error you're getting, can you provide any detail?
