Subject [jira] Created: (MECLIPSE-152) Write .classpath with ordered dependencies [incl. Patch]
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2006 12:15:49 GMT
Write .classpath with ordered dependencies [incl. Patch]

                 Key: MECLIPSE-152
             Project: Maven 2.x Eclipse Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.2
         Environment: Windowz XP, eclipse 3.2

            Reporter: Holger Hoffstätte
         Attachments: orderDependencies.patch

Related to my comment in MNG-1412 - I decided to take a quick stab at the eclipse plugin and
voilá! Ordered dependencies in the written .classpath. This is only a prototype (my first
attempt at maven development) and could serve as basis for other orderings like groupId, transitive
nearness etc.

Initially I wanted to make IdeDependency comparable (similar to MECLIPSE-150 which added proper
equals) but having multiple Comparators seemed better for extensibility.

It worked right away, does exactly what I want (ordering by artifactId) and has minimal impact.
I am not familiar with the maven codebase so I hope this is the right place to do the actual
ordering before writing; obviously it should observe a property like -DorderDependencies=artifactId
or something similar. The patch is against svn r425750 (2006-08-30). Currently no testcase
but if someone tells me how to add/read an orderDependencies property I might add one.

Comments welcome.
