Running Vaadin on Virgo the Maven way

Today I tried to run Vaadin on Virgo :

I created a web bundle using the felix maven plugin, added the virgo tooling bundle nature and was able to deploy it using virgo tooling.

I still do wonder what would be the best practices to collect all dependencies of a larger project and get them deployed. How do you solve this for your production machines?

Hey Eike,
I was looking for something more suitable for virgo (I don't deploy war files) and probably not tied to eclipse so that I can run it in my maven build.
