Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-78) create eclipse projects which are m2eclipse ready
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2006 02:27:53 GMT
    [ ] 
Rob Baily commented on MECLIPSE-78:

Actually I take back what I said about the -D option.  In this case the configuration is being
attached to the Eclipse plugin (as in <artifactId>maven-eclipse-plugin</artifactId>)
so this looks perfectly reasonable and is implemented in a similar manner to other configuration
options as described in
 For me based on the current stuff out there I get the maven2Builder and maven2Nature in my
.project file although I'm not entirely sure why so I need to check that out a bit more.

I'm taking a crack at redoing the patch since the last one was from over 6 months ago.  I
was able to get something tonight where I could enable Maven on a project without having to
remove any JARs from the build path.

>                 Key: MECLIPSE-78
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Eclipse Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>         Environment: Fedora Core 3, Sun JDK, Eclipse 3.1.1, Maven 2.0.2
>            Reporter: Joshua Nichols
>         Attachments: m2eclipse.patch, m2eclipse.patch
> WIth the recent development of the m2eclipse plugin, I believe it is useful to create
eclipse projects via mvn eclipse:eclipse that use m2eclipse from the start. One of the advantages
of using m2eclipse is that you don't have to rerun eclipse:eclipse when you update any dependencies.
> A few things are necessary to accomplish this, in terms of changes to .classpath and
> .project needs a new nature and builder added. For the builder:
>     <buildCommand>
>       <name>org.maven.ide.eclipse.maven2Builder</name>
>       <arguments/>
>     </buildCommand>
> For the nature:
> <nature>org.maven.ide.eclipse.maven2Nature</nature>
> In the .classpath, we need to add:
>   <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.maven.ide.eclipse.MAVEN2_CLASSPATH_CONTAINER"/>
> In .classpath, you also don't want entries <classpathentry kind="var" path="M2_REPO/blah/blah/x.y.z/blah-x.y.z.jar"/>,
because they would conflict with m2eclipse setting up the classpath.
