Subject Re: [C3] Working with archetypes [Was Re: parent of parent artifact?]

As so often happens, asking for help generated some further thoughts and 
I was able to get things working better.

Although I had added a COB-INF/sitemap.xmap to src in my block 
(e-17-pub/src/main/resources/COB-INF/sitemap.xmap), I noticed that the 
target (e-17-pub/target/classes) did not have COB-INF/sitemap.xmap.

I quit jetty, and ran "mvn jetty:run" again -- and now the test sitemap 

So apparently the problem was that my changes in the src tree were 

The next question is, what is the best-practice way to develop? I don't 
think the intention is that every time I make a change, I'm supposed to 
stop and restart jetty in order to see my changes.

Maybe I misunderstood this paragraph from Francesco:

Does this mean immediately after I restart jetty? Or immediately after I 
make changes? If the latter, what am I doing wrong, that I don't see 
this happening?

Thanks again!
