Subject Re: Cocoon 2.2 and Netbeans IDE
Date Fri, 15 Aug 2008 01:50:17 GMT
Hi Mika,

It wasn't a minor problem; it actually prevented me from working on
Cocoon blocks for a while.

Yes, with some difficulty, I got it working.  The root cause of the
errors is that (a) a dependency was using a relatively long version
string and (b) the Maven plugin was using the 32-bit Integer number
parsing for the version number. This was version 3.1.2 of the plugin,
I think.  This was no fault of the Cocoon dev team, but all of us got
caught in the crossfire.  The word given back in June or so was that
it would be fixed in 3.1.4, but so far, that hasn't happened.

NetBeans 6.5 M1 has a Maven plugin version 4.0, but that wouldn't work
for me either.  Instead, I had to download the nightly build.

Update: While looking for a link for you, I see that 3.1.4 has finally
been released.  If it hasn't shown up in the Update Center, you can
download it manually at
Unzip it and install it through Tools>Plugins>Downloaded>Add.

Hope this works for you.  And for what it's worth, I am very much
enjoying the transition from Eclipse to NetBeans.  No more standalone
Maven download step, and (most of the time) the Update Center keeps
everything running smoothly.  Far better than the Maven-Eclipse
integration to be sure.

- Miles
