Subject [Myfaces Wiki] Update of "Eclipse IDE" by WernerPunz
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2005 20:57:03 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Myfaces Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by WernerPunz:

  *the user name and password can be left blank if you want read only anon access, otherwise
enter your access data
  *Press ok and confirm the dialogs regarding the keys, you should now have access to the
SVN Myfaces repository
+ == Source checkout ==
+ Once you have established contact to the repository you are able to check out the sources
into a local project or generate a new project.
+ The  main problem if you want to edit or build the sources is, that Eclipse per se, does
not have any support for webapplications, there are however various commercial or non commerical
webapplication plugins available.
+ I will try to concentrate on things whiche are common among most plugins.
+ First of all the sources are organized in the myfaces directory under
+ * module/branches
+ * module/trunk
+ * module/tag
+ with module being the submodule.
+ The directories branchs, trunk, tag, are various views on the codebase as defined by the
Subversion project, as recommendation.
+ A detailed explanation of this can be found in the Subversion handbook at,
therefore only a short explanation is given here.
+ under tag are the frozen packages and files, stable versions can be found there.
+ Trunk is the main development trunk,
+ and branches are development branches, those are under strong fluctuation.
+ Depending on what you want to do, you either have to check out everything in eclipse or
you have to concentrate yourself at the files you want to use.
+ Probably checking out the entire tree and using the build files for the build process is
+ == Building from Source ==
+ Once you have checked out the project you can use the integrated ant, to build MyFaces from
Eclipse.  (Dont worry, using ANT from Eclipse is very easy and graphical, not need for wading
through XML graces will be by using Eclipse)
+ * First, open the ANT view under Window->Show View->Ant->Ant
+ * Should now have a perfectly working ANT view in your Eclipse
+ * Now click on the Ant symbol with a plus on the right hand side of it and select the build
files in the build dir
+ * you should now have several build files in your ant tree
