Hi Christoph,

it is a bit tricky to build an opencms.war with the common modules.

You have to run the build.xml under /opencms/modules/

Additionally some default properties are required to suceed. We keep 
these properties in a separate file "build.properties". I attach some 
properties to set. We run it from within eclipse and specify the 
build.properties in the build configuration. If you use ANT from the 
command line you have to use the  -propertyfile <name> argument.

build.properties (tags have to be replaced by your paths):
tomcat.home= F:/tomcat
app.name   =opencms2
opencms.input.warfiles	=<eclipsehome>/workspace/OpenCms/opencms/webapp

I hope I did not forget any properties.

kind regards,
