Automatically create target platform with geronimo server bundles when server is created

                 Key: GERONIMODEVTOOLS-700
             Project: Geronimo-Devtools
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: eclipse-plugin
    Affects Versions: 3.0_M1
            Reporter: Han Hong Fang
            Assignee: Han Hong Fang
             Fix For: 3.0

The javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.* are not listed in the exported packages list

javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.* is not a standard spec API in Java EE , its implementation varies
with different app server, that's why eclipse doesn't include javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.* by
default. So if you want to make it appear on exported package list, you should import jstl
implement bundle into workspace, for example, import  geronimo jstl-1.2_1.jar and  geronimo-el_2.2.jar
under $server_home/repository/org/apache/geronimo/bundles/jstl/1.2_1&$server_home/repository/org/apache/geronimo/specs/geronimo-el_2.2_spec,
then you can select jstl from export package list.


Your suggestion would work. But then it is hard to import each and every jar that you would
depend on, to your workspace.
The recommended way is to set the workspace target platform to point to the target server
jars location.
You can do that by going to Windows > Preferences >  Plug-in Development > Target
Platform and select Add and point to the location that contains your Geronimo jars (assuming
these jars have a Manifest that exports the packages within the jar). and Click OK.
This would allow your application to compile against all of the jars, and can import any package
that is exported by any of them. Another advantage is that would ensure your application would
resolve these dependencies when you deploy to that server.
In RAD we do this step automatically when you target WAS 8 or WAS 7 server. In the OSGi free
tools, users have to do this step manually.
