Subject [jira] [Resolved] (IVYDE-299) IvyDE is making .classpath file writable and rewriting it
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 13:59:21 GMT


Nicolas Lalevée resolved IVYDE-299.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I dont think we'll fix it. The .classpath is first meant to be manipulated by Eclipse and
its plugins, not people.

Your current .classpath has an entry about IvyDE. IvyDE 2.2 detects that it has missing information,
because it was generated by an IvyDE 2.1. So it updates it.

Maybe something that would work for you is to let first IvyDE change the .classpath. Then
replace it with your own version but keeping the one line about IvyDE container. So IvyDE
won't try to update it.

> The latest beta (2.2.0b1) is continually rewriting the project's .classpath file.  This
is problematic for two reasons: 1) Our project is submitted to source control, so the rewriting
causes a pending change for the .classpath file and 2) We are manually editing the .classpath
file to add useful comments, which are being lost when the file is written again.  Reverting
to 2.1.0 and the issue goes away.
