Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1931) Derby JAR files should be grouped as a single library in Package Explorer
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2007 20:38:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1931?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12475491

Aaron Tarter commented on DERBY-1931:

I agree that the current behavior of adding four derby lib entries with absolute path references
to the .classpath is problematic.  It prevents easy sharing through an SCM repository like
SVN or CVS, since the references are not relative (i.e. portable).  The solution suggested
above would be to use an eclipse IClasspathContainer (like the JRE System Library).  Define
a container in the plugin that loads the derby jars and then just add that container to the
.classpath when the user clicks "Add Derby Nature".  Another simpler, but perhaps less pretty,
approach is to modify the "Add Derby Nature" popup action to add var entries relative to the
ECLIPSE_HOME variable.  So, in this case they would still appear as non-collapsable individual
entries, but at least they would be portable.  The entries in the .classpath would then be:
<classpathentry kind="var" path="ECLIPSE_HOME/plugins/org.apache.derby.core_10.2.2/derby.jar"/>
<classpathentry kind="var" path="ECLIPSE_HOME/plugins/org.apache.derby.core_10.2.2/derbyclient.jar"/>
<classpathentry kind="var" path="ECLIPSE_HOME/plugins/org.apache.derby.core_10.2.2/derbynet.jar"/>
<classpathentry kind="var" path="ECLIPSE_HOME/plugins/org.apache.derby.core_10.2.2/derbytools.jar"/>

> After adding the Apache Derby Nature to an Eclipse project, the four Derby JAR files
appear individually in the Package Explorer View.   It would be neater if they were grouped
as a single library called "Apache Derby Library", in the same way that the JARs distributed
with a Java run-time environment appear as "JRE System Library".
