Vaadin and the maven-release-plugin

I want to know if anyone has used the vaadin-maven-plugin along with the maven-release-plugin? The main issue I think I’m having is that when the maven-release-plugin is building my project, the vaadin-maven-plugin doesn’t seem to be compiling anything so I get a lot of stuff missing from my WAR. Any thoughts?

Does your widgetset get compiled on basic mvn clean install ? The you are probably missing the declaration that brings the widgetset compilation to be a part of basic build. Create a project stub with the
and steal the execution configuration form that.
