Subject Re: Eclipse as development tool for Geronimo components
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2006 16:40:18 GMT
One of the big problems is that you can not use pure Eclipse to  
develop Geronimo. (just make code changes and compile)  The maven  
eclipse plugin generates the .classpath in which all the projects  
reference only the built jars in the maven repository rather then the  
projects set up to reference each other.  This causes a huge  
annoyance in that every time you make a change that affects another  
module, you will not see any compilation errors since the modified  
module has to be rebuilt and redeployed with maven so that the  
affected jar picks up the change.

Also using the maven plugin for eclipse doesn't help, and enabling  
the maven build to occur using it helps the issue but makes the build  
process extremlely long.  I haven't tried the m2 eclipse goal to see  
if it addresses some of these issues or not.
