Subject [jira] Created: (MECLIPSE-134) target/classes not acceptable for eclipse
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2006 13:40:25 GMT
target/classes not acceptable for eclipse

                 Key: MECLIPSE-134
             Project: Maven 2.x Eclipse Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2, 2.1, 2.0
            Reporter: Jörg Hohwiller
            Priority: Minor

"mvn eclipse:eclipse" causes an eclipse configuration where the classfiles generated by eclipse
go to the same directory as the classes generated by maven. This is extremly evil! Eclipse
and maven are independent tools and should therefore not compile to the same target folder
causing side effects. Especially when "mvn clean" is called and you re-run an existing application
inside eclipse, and get a NoClassDefFoundError you can get slightly confused.
Please use anything else than "target/...". My suggestion would be ".eclipse-build".
