Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511) Provide zip download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with requisites
Date Thu, 11 Sep 2008 04:10:44 GMT


Donald Woods commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511:

Still say we have more important items to get in GEP before we consider becoming Eclipse repackagers,
1) more automation testing (like deployment plan editors, sharedlib, multiple server repos,
2) being able to create custom server assemblies based on deployed app(s)
3) turning a user's war/ear into a plugin
4) automatically determine application dependencies, based on packages and annotations used
in the source code
5) automatically upgrade older deployment plans to target server level
6) ensure all of the Geronimo Samples can be imported into Eclipse and published to a server
7) make sure we support servers setup to use secure JMX/RMI introduced in Geronimo 2.1.2
8) support new farm deployer in Geronimo 2.2
9) keep the docs and tutorials updated for every GEP release

> Please provide a zip / tar.gz download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with all requisites,
inclusive a stripped-down Eclipse itself.
> The zip should not contain eclipse as root folder but rather eclipseGeronimo to not overwrite
the default Eclipse installation.
> The download options described in
> require that WTP and some more are installed. Installing WTP is error-prone, as it has
lots of dependencies you need in the right version. 
> Installing via Eclipse-Help-Software Updates does not work either as the Update manager
is not smart enough to install requisites:
> Geronimo v1.0 Server Adapter (2.0.0) requires feature "org.eclipse.jst (2.0.0)", or compatible
> The given ant script does not work behind our firewall, and I am not keen on figuring
out how the firewall options of ant work.
