Subject Re: getting relative paths maven + continuum
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2007 16:17:05 GMT
Yes - I thought it might be this.  You can't do that and expect  
continuum to understand it.  In fact, continuum checked out your  
child projects into their own folders that have no relation to the  
parent.  There's literally no way to know what to set that property to.

If you have things in the parent that are necessary to the children,  
then you need to make sure they are available to the children either  
through metadata, or by being included in an artifact (jar) that the  
children have access to.

You haven't "configured things incorrectly" - your project design is  
problematic, because it makes the assumption that your folder  
structure is constant.  With maven, you should not make that  
assumption.  With continuum, you cannot make that assumption.
