I selected the MyEclipse plugin as a necessity to travel this kind of development spectrum. Using Eclipse was without question, and I needed the breadth of tools bundled by MyEclipse. It didn't hurt that it had an attractive price for the features. These were the same reasons that I selected Geronimo as an Application Server Platform.
The largest problems I've had in this journey have been integration between the development environment, Eclipse, and the Application Server, Geronimo. I now completely understand the term "Death by Configuration". I've also lacked a decent end to end tutorial for this integration. I've humped through the MyEclipse examples using JBoss or Weblogic and successfully transposed them into Geronimo utilizing the wiki examples and a little help from the list.
At last, I see the nirvana of configuration management available via XDoclet!
So here's the question:
How do I get OpenEJB XDoclet support integrated into MyEclipse? I've tried adding the openejb subtask to the Standard EJB task and I generate a blank openejb-jar.xml file. I'd really like to manage my CMP field mappings in ths manner if possible.
Is anyone using XDoclet support to generate the openejb-jar.xml, or geronimo-application.xml, or geronimo-web.xml? If so, where do I find documentation/tutorial on its usage?
Thanks to All for the work everyone does on Geronimo!
