Subject [jira] Commented: (SHALE-444) Eclipse Plugin
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2007 02:12:05 GMT


Gary VanMatre commented on SHALE-444:

I still have not be successful in creating a Maven build for this eclipse plugin.  I've been
trying to use an alpha maven pde plugin [1].  This plugin creates an ant build script and
then launches eclipse in headless mode.  The eclipse IDE is still required.  I've tried contacting
the primary author but the mail account is not active. 

Another interesting twist is that Ryan's eclipse plugin has several dependencies to libraries
that can be found in maven repositories.  It would be nice if we could get maven to pull these
down into a lib folder under the plugin project.  I was thinking that we could create our
own mojo to pull the projects compile dependencies and drop them in the lib folder.

The maven pde plugin is under an apache license so we could pull it in as a base to start
from.  However, would it be worth the effort considering the IDE is required to create a deployable
plugin artifact? 

At the very minimum, a mojo to fixup the project dependencies would be helpful.  Deploying
for eclipse is only a couple clicks.

I feel we need to get this code in our repository but wanted to have a good build.  Any objections
to committing to the sandbox so you maven mavens can take a look?
