Subject Re: Changes in J2G build process
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2007 20:33:15 GMT
This is the same as the v2.0.0 Eclipse plugin (aka. WTP server adapter) is now 
downloading the Eclipse packages, which removes the need to use someones 
private space for the artifacts in a .m2 format along with 
allows the build to automatically pull the files from a closer Eclipse mirror.
