Subject Important info regarding building eclipse plugin
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2006 03:54:23 GMT

WTP and Eclipse have introduced into their builds a new concept of a  
"qualifer".  This "qualifier" is basically a time-date stamp that  
gets appended to the plugin jar version during their build for any  
plugin that has changed
in that build.  This means that no 2 builds will have the same jar  
versions.  So unlike before, the geronimo plugin could build against  
any 1.0.x level of WTP.  This is no longer true and until I find a  
more appropriate flexible solution, the build is now binded to a  
given driver.

So from a users perspective wanting to build, this has minimum  
impact.  Building with "maven build" will automatically download the  
necessary drivers.  The only impact is they will no longer be able to  
use the eclipse.home property to point to their own version of  
eclipse to build against.
