Subject Re: Want to debug/trace WSDL2Java within Eclipse
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2008 18:18:01 GMT


By default, maven doesn't build source jars (as that would slow the build 
down for everyone).   There are a couple ways to proceed:

1) Run "mvn source:jar install -Pfastinstall 
or similar to tell maven to also build the source jars before install 
time.  They would then get installed and eclipse:eclipse will find them 

2) If you REALLY want to start working in eclipse to develop CXF, follow 
the steps at:
The -Psetup.eclipse profile will completely setup the eclipse workspace 
with checkstyle rules, pmd rules, linked projects, etc...   You can 
change the code to see stuff immediately, etc...

Of course, CXF consists of something like 50 projects which is a big list 
when imported into eclipse.  The "Package Explorer" tab gets pretty 
long.   That's when using eclipse working sets can help.   I have a 
couple working sets setup to help manage it.   Example: I have a "tools" 
working set that just has the tools projects.  I have a jaxws projects 
with just the stuff I need for jaxws stuff, etc...
