Subject Antwort: Re: Eclipse .project & .classpath files (is he talking about Maven again?!?!?!)

Hi there,

I just want to give my response aswell. As a rarely jsf developer, I'm 
always in the situation, that
I've got to setup my myfaces enviroment from new, because I'm not always 
on track with the changes.
Even Eclipse and its different web/jsf plugins change so quickly...
It would save me alot of time if I could take the settings from one of the 

It shouldn't be, that it is a must to use it. But for those who need a 
jump start.... it would be very comfortable...

I know I don't have a vote here ;)  but if I did, it would be -1

Best case
By doing this, you are forcing every developer to deal with files that 
always appear to have changes/differences.  Yes, Eclipse will touch those

In most projects that I've been involved in.  You generally want to ignore
those files because they assume a certain IDE is being used by all.

Worst case
What do you propose someone do if they need that spot (i.e. they are using 
different IDE and different format, which requires a ".classpath" file in
the place of the one under svn)?

Let's meet in the middle
Not to beat the Maven drum any more than I have to....but that's actually
one of the cool features of Maven.  With a proper Maven project.xml file
describing dependencies, creating the .project and .classpath files for
*any* IDE is as simple as...

...ah shucks, take your pick...

FYI - I will be Mavenizing the MyFaces build within the next couple of
weeks.  Whether it is accepted into SVN is another issue for another 
If not, I will make it available somewhere (wiki, docs, something).
