RAD 6.0 (eclipse 3.0) with / AJDT 1.2.1 & AspectJ 1.5.1 [message #593157] Wed, 05 April 2006 22:41

Hello, I'm trying to get AJDT 1.2.1 to build with an updated copy of the
AspectJ compiler (1.5.1) in order to take advantage of the memory savings
the new version of the compiler offers. I'm using Rational Application
Developer 6.0 (eclipse 3.0x). One of my co-workers (B Schuchert) posted
a description of our development group/project size a few days ago.
Disclaimer: I'm never developed an eclipse plug-in before, so forgive me
if my questions have obvious answers.

To start, I checked out the ajdt 1.2 branch, and pointed the
aspectj.lib.dir ant var at an aspect 1.5.1 lib directory.

One of the build files refers to a hard path (the build.xml in
org.aspectj.ajde has a path
" ${aspectj.lib.dir}/../../ide/eclipse/org.aspectj.ajde.source /src/ ").
Should I have checked out something in addition to the ajdt projects
(like the aspectj tree in cvs) mentioned in the ajdt faq entry?

I ran the "plugin jars" task to create a new ajde.jar and I fixed a
compilation error with some new methods added to Now,
the error I am getting is an IDE pop-up complaining that the version
declared in my aspectjrt.jar does not match what's expected. It expects
1.5.0, but finds 1.5.1. The only place I can find a reference to the
number 1.5.0 is the ajdt plugin I'm currently using. So that brings up
the question.... am I in a chicken-and-the-egg scenario? Can I upgrade
the compiler and test the upgrade inside a workspace that is using an old
ajdt/aj version?

Many CoreTests are failing.

Should I be running the coretests is a seperate workspace I kick off? Or
should they be able to work in my current workspace?

It wasn't entirely clear to me from the faq instructions (which did
mention kicking off a seperate workspace -- but that workspace would not
have the .test projects in it), right?

Appreciate any help you can provide.
