eclipse + tomcat + maven pain again

Banging my head against the wall again today
because my app just does not want to start up :'(
Between eclipse, tomcat and maven my classpath was messed up, getting all sorts of exceptions like NoClassDefFoundError etc.

Finally I figured out again that for each project involved you have to check "Maven Dependencies"
in the "Order and Export" tab of the Java build path settings.
Then when you tell tomcat to include these projects,
it will actually include it and its dependencies.

I'm not sure how this got lost because my app used to work. Maybe when I imported the same project in
another workspace that got reset :(
