Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1926) Add Ant target to generate the project description files for running Cassandra in Eclipse
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 16:08:46 GMT


T Jake Luciani commented on CASSANDRA-1926:

I selfishly would like to see this in build.xml,  I'm working on a patch to do the *.jar for
includes.  Eclipse project files don't support this so its not straight forward.

> "" has demonstrated the procedure
to manually configure Eclipse to make Cassandra runnable in it. But why not doing this automatically
by adding an Ant target that is responsible the generation of Eclipse project description
files? Actually, another Apache project, Hive, has done the similar things.
> Moreover, the aforementioned setup guide has the defects, which was learned from my experience
of building Cassandra in Eclipse:
> 1) The "bin/" directory of Cassandra contains the executable scripts while it is the
output destination of Eclipse project build by default. Therefore, unintentionally using Eclipse
project build will break the original executable scripts in the "bin/" directory.
> 2) The default builder cannot build the project correctly. Instead, a customized builder
based Ant builder should be created.
> For these reasons, I suggest to add a new Ant target in "build.xml" to generate the project
description files. Meanwhile, another target is required to clean these files.
