Subject Re: car-maven-plugin and GEP
Date Tue, 23 Dec 2008 23:33:52 GMT

calculator into eclipse IDE and use GEP to debug, deploy and test? 
(repository at

I can use maven outside eclipse to build, install the sample to local
repository and deploy from console or from gshell. But I still do not know
how I can import samples / projects that are set up with car-maven-plugin
into eclipse?
