Deploying With Webdav
The simplest way to enable webdav deployment is to add a build extension to your project:
To use mvn deploy:deploy-file with webdav, save a simple pom.xml containing wagon-webdav as a build extension in the directory from which you execute 'mvn'. (You may need to rename the pom for the project you are deploying.)
Example: mvn deploy:deploy-file -Dfile=example.jar -DpomFile=example.pom -DrepositoryId=myrepo -Durl=http://localhost:8080/archiva/repository/myrepo
You can also point Maven at an alternate pom file with -f on the command line.
Example: mvn deploy:deploy-file -f /path/to/webdav-deploy-pom.xml -Dfile=example.jar -DpomFile=example.pom -DrepositoryId=myrepo
Alternate method, modifying the Maven distribution
Given that maven 2 doesn't currently include the wagon-webdav plug-in in its core, here's how to add it:
add to maven-2.0.x/pom.xml
add to maven-2.0.x/maven-core/pom.xml
and finally install your new maven-2.0.5-SNAPSHOT-bin...
