Subject [jira] [Commented] (AXIS2-4937) Creating Eclipse Features and a p2 Repository for Axis2 Eclipse IDE plugins
Date Sat, 20 Aug 2011 09:02:27 GMT


Andreas Veithen commented on AXIS2-4937:

I think that this approach would introduce a bunch of new difficulties, but there is another
more fundamental question. IIRC the primary goal is not to redesign the build of these plugins:
the existing Felix based build works well and once deployed, the plugins work well in Eclipse
(at least there are no issues caused by the way the plugins are built). The issue is with
the deployment in Eclipse and the original goal was to produce an Eclipse feature and download
site to make this easier. Now the question is: if we succeed in creating an Eclipse feature
and a download site that includes this "dependency bundle" built with Felix, then one would
expect that it should also be possible to create these artifacts for the existing Felix built
plugins, i.e. why would one need Tycho at all to build the plugins?
