Subject [jira] Created: (GRFT-91) Remove Eclipse .project and .classpath files from svn
Date Thu, 20 Jul 2006 22:49:13 GMT
Remove Eclipse .project and .classpath files from svn

                 Key: GRFT-91
             Project: Graffito
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Project Build
         Environment: Eclipse
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
            Priority: Minor

Some of the Graffito subprojects in svn contain Eclipse .project and .classpath files presumably
to simplify opening of the projects in Eclipse. While this is a nice feature, it is also quite
troublesome because it a) duplicates information from project.xml, and b) interferes with
svn operations when the user wants to modify the project settings in Eclipse.

For example after checking out the entire Graffito trunk I imported all the subprojects to
Eclipse and replaced library dependencies to other Graffito subproject jars with project dependencies
to the actual subprojects. This makes it very easy to navigate Graffito sources, but of course
marks all .classpath files managed in svn as modified.

It would be good to remove the .project and .classpath files from svn, especially since they
can be easily generated using "maven eclipse" from the Maven Eclipse plugin.
