Back to the thread discussing the Java EE 7 artifacts... The information
on this page (
needs a couple of updates...
The version for the javax.servlet package should be 3.1.0 (not 3.1).
The version for the javax.faces package should be 2.2 (not 2.2.0).
I don't have authority to update this Maven Coordinate page. Can somebody
correct these two entries? Thank you.
