Subject Important info regarding Eclipse Plugin 1.1 M2 Build & Status
Date Wed, 24 May 2006 14:47:40 GMT
FYI... for those trying to build the eclipse plugin from trunk...

Until a new openejb snapshot is published, you will need to copy the  
openejb jars from the m1 repo to your m2 repo.  Then from the root of  
the tree simply invoke "mvn".  I've modified the generation of the  
binaries to use an assembly descriptor (one for the deployable  
distribution and another for the updatesite distribution). Both of  
these can be found under the "assembly" module.  (mvn  
assembly:assembly) The "assemblies" module is now old and will be  
removed pending the verification of the this new "assembly" module.   
So it would be a great help if someone could verify that the  
distribution actually runs.

Secondly, I'm wanting to release the 1.1 version of the plugin as  
close as possible to the release of G1.1, so if anyone is looking to  
help out... here's a few things off of my todo list that shouldn't  
take long but I haven't had a chance to get around to..

- Need a server editor section that provides a checkbox to enable/ 
disable "test envioronment" mode.
- I'd like to package all of the plugins as archives (currently those  
that contain nested jars are exploded in the binaries) and let the  
platform handle nested jars, so change the assemblies to jar all  
plugins and then verify Eclipse can handle this ok. (will require  
code changes when deploying the configstore as that jar and the plan  
will need to be extracted out from a jar and stored in the plugin  
- Get the 1.1 editor support working... (double clicking on a 1.0  
plan should load the 1.0 editor and double clicking on a 1.1 plan  
should load the 1.1 editor)
- only new form page needed for 1.1 is for the new environment element
- open jiras
