Subject [jira] Created: (OPENJPA-1628) Output control for generated canonical metamodel source code
Date Mon, 12 Apr 2010 13:21:41 GMT
Output control for generated canonical metamodel source code

                 Key: OPENJPA-1628
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: jpa
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta3
            Reporter: Frank Schwarz

I think, the way the JPA metamodel generator places the generated Java files, is flawed. I
would have reopened OPENJPA-1187, if I had been able to.

There should be no need to specify a proprietary switch ("openjpa.out") to specify the output
dir. There is a switch '-s' to be used with javac to specify the output directory of the generated
source files; see A
proprietary switch should only be used as a fallback option for inconsistent java-implementations.

Furthermore, the current approach does not play well with eclipse IDE annotation processing.
The generated source files are placed under the eclipse installation directory. I can only
prevent this, if I specify a fully qualified "out"-path. This is not feasible, as a project
with these settings might be checked out to everywhere.
The current approach with "setSourceOutputDirectory(new File(outDir))" seams only to be working
by coincidence with relative paths (e.g with ant-javac).
