Subject [jira] Created: (BUILDR-84) IDE Meta Generation Should Not Require Sources
Date Sat, 07 Jun 2008 00:50:46 GMT
IDE Meta Generation Should Not Require Sources

                 Key: BUILDR-84
             Project: Buildr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: IDE
    Affects Versions: 1.3.2
         Environment: eclipse
            Reporter: Daniel Spiewak

The `eclipse` task (and I assume `idea` as well) requires at least one source file of the
relevant type to be found within a source directory.  For example, for project meta generation
to succeed, the src/main/java/ directory (and/or subdirectories) must contain at least one
.java file.  The same holds for scala.  If these source files are not specified, the task
silently fails and just doesn't generate any project meta.

It seems to me that this would be a fairly common use-case: using Buildr to setup a project
prior to creating any sources and then doing the actual coding within an IDE.  I would propose
that the source autodetection be fixed to just assume that there will be source files within
the relevant source dirs if they exist.  At the very least, a warning should be printed regarding
the absence of sources and that this prevents IDE meta gen.
