Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVYDE-299) IvyDE is making .classpath file writable and rewriting it
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 14:55:33 GMT


Nicolas Lalevée commented on IVYDE-299:

I am sorry this is making some mess in your project Martin, but I feel quite uncomfortable
not forcing the .classpath to be upgraded.
Now I remember why the project name was added to the IvyDE classpath entry. For some reason,
in the launch configuration, if a project is added manually to the source lookup and it contains
an IvyDE classpath container, the project reference is lost by the JDT. So I had to add it
to the IvyDE container. So now if the .classpath is not upgraded, we may introduce a bug I
had a hard time to fix.
We could think of an option saying "do not upgrade .classpath, I know what I am doing". But
to be able to check this option, you will have to upgrade first...
I cannot find a good solution to your issue.

> 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.
