Subject [jira] [Created] (QPID-3181) Auto-generate Eclipse .project and .classpath files for Qpid Java components
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2011 09:08:05 GMT
Auto-generate Eclipse .project and .classpath files for Qpid Java components

                 Key: QPID-3181
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-3181
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Ant Build System
            Reporter: Keith Wall
            Assignee: Keith Wall
            Priority: Minor

For those who use Eclipse and prefer to have the Qpid Java components in separate Eclipse
projects know that there is much manual effort required to import the projects, set up source
paths, class-paths, and establish dependencies between projects.   This has been discussed
on the dev-list. I know I can spend up to half an hour getting the manual setup done.

I've written an extension to the build system that uses http://ant-eclipse.sourceforge.net/
to create the Eclipse .project and .classpath files automatically for each of the Java components
(broker, common, client etc).  The new targets make use of the existing properties used by
the Ant build process: source folders come from ${module.src} etc, classpaths from ${module.libs}
etc and the project dependencies are computed from automatically ${module.depends} so there
is no new configuration to maintain.

There is still a single *manual step* required within Eclipse (to create a linked source from
broker, common, client and broker-plugins-access-control projects to their auto-generated
code source folder beneath build/scratch) as Ant Eclipse does not yet support the creation
of linked-sources, but after this is done you have a fully imported Qpid with zero errors

I will put together a Wiki page to provide instructions.
