Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-78) create eclipse projects which are m2eclipse ready
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 10:41:46 GMT


Martin Onis commented on MECLIPSE-78:

Thanks for the patch Rob ;-)

I've found two issues though:

 1. The m2eclipse setting doesn't carry to subprojects (when invoked from the root project).
Other settings do carry, so it must be something in the patch...

2. If the MAVEN2_CLASSPATH_CONTAINER is specified in the configuration, it will be included
in .classpath twice.

I've temporarily fixed that for me by hardcoding the setting and removing the classpathContainers
from the configuration. So don't feel pressured to fix that immediately ;-)

> WIth the recent development of the m2eclipse plugin, I believe it is useful to create
eclipse projects via mvn eclipse:eclipse that use m2eclipse from the start. One of the advantages
of using m2eclipse is that you don't have to rerun eclipse:eclipse when you update any dependencies.
> A few things are necessary to accomplish this, in terms of changes to .classpath and
> .project needs a new nature and builder added. For the builder:
>     <buildCommand>
>       <name>org.maven.ide.eclipse.maven2Builder</name>
>       <arguments/>
>     </buildCommand>
> For the nature:
> <nature>org.maven.ide.eclipse.maven2Nature</nature>
> In the .classpath, we need to add:
>   <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.maven.ide.eclipse.MAVEN2_CLASSPATH_CONTAINER"/>
> In .classpath, you also don't want entries <classpathentry kind="var" path="M2_REPO/blah/blah/x.y.z/blah-x.y.z.jar"/>,
because they would conflict with m2eclipse setting up the classpath.
