Subject [jira] Commented: (MNGECLIPSE-59) Allow artifact resolution from workspace projects
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2006 14:20:32 GMT
    [ ] 

Mark J. Sinke commented on MNGECLIPSE-59:

I took the liberty to resolve the problem of workspace artifact resolution. The attached patch
file has it all.

The way it works is that when an artifact is resolved, the resolution is channeled through
an Eclipse-based artifact resolver, which will first look for a Maven2-enabled project in
the workspace, with a pom file that declares the exact version ID which is requested. If that
happens to be the case, instead of adding a JAR dependency to the local repository, instead
a project dependency is added to the Maven2 ClassPath container.

I had to slightly change the code in MavenEmbedder to allow this. The patch is uploaded to
the MNG-1937 issue, mentioned in the dependencies. I did not explicitly allow substitution
of the artifact resolver. Instead, I allowed changing the Plexus Embedder context before looking
up components. This happens to make the necessary subsitution  of the artifact resolver trivial.
It's a oneliner in EclipseMavenEmbedder now, referring to the EclipseArtifactResolver.

> Provide artifact resolution from workspace projects, which override the same artifact
from the local or remote repositories. This would allow to work with dependant Eclipse projects
without specifying the Eclipse dependency manually.
> The workspace artifact resolution would have to be specified manually, since several
Maven-Enabled projects in the same workspace could have the same artifact and version Id.
Or at least automatic resolution with an optional override would be nice.
