Subject [jira] Commented: (LABS-411) [eclipse] target/classes used by some Eclipse components instead of real output folder
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2009 21:14:00 GMT


Simone Gianni commented on LABS-411:

Method addProjectEntries desumes the target/classes and target/test-classes from maven metadata,
ignoring eclipse settings completely, which is wrong cause does not permit to have a differentiated
Eclipse/Maven target directory, or at least lets Eclipse use target/classes whenever it needs
to run something.

M2E installs its own MavenRuntimeClasspathProvider when a new configuration is created, Magma
should obviate this M2E behaviour extending the Maven classpath provider so that the target-eclipse
folder is used for Magma projects.

> When working with Maven and Eclipse, the target/classes folder can cause some problems,
cause having both Eclipse and Maven using it inconsistencies can happen.
> This is expecially true for Magma, cause some .class files generated by the Magma mojo
are not ready to run, but must be fed to the AspectJ LTW system or to magma:war for complete
weaving (this is due to -XterminateAfterCompile).
> So, the Eclipse Magma plugin uses target-eclipse instead of target inside Eclipse, so
that the two builders does not interfere, and Eclipse creates complete classes instead of
partial ones to use for it's internal tools (like running junits inside eclipse).
> Unfortunately however, Eclipse keeps on using target/classes to run junit tests, even
if that string does not appear inside .project nor anywhere else in the project or workspace,
so I don't know exactly where it is getting that path. Since it is not a standard path, I
think M2E has something to do with it, probably it modifies the Eclipse project to return
that folder in a way that it's not possible to modify it further.
