Hi,

At build.eclipse.org we can find the maven repo that includes xtext jars. This is very useful. However, the repo only has xtext 2.3 and 2.4 there. It would be useful to keep the older versions (we need 2.2) as well. I am sure our project is not the only one depending on an older version.

Is it possible to keep the older versions as well? The same holds for other maven artifacts on the site.

PS: On maven.eclipse.org, we cannot find any xtext artifacts at all, is this not supposed to be the place to find them?

We produce maven artifacts since 2.3 so we can't share an earlier version. Maybe you can use the first maven repository draft where 2.2 is in: http://build.eclipse.org/common/xtext/maven/maven-snapshot/final/

Yes, that's the place where one would expect to find an eclipse projects maven artifacts. But you will find any, except of eclipse parent with funny versions. There are several bug reports about this maven.eclipse.org issue, also some xtext related, but still no progress.

Thanks, that explains why there is no xtext 2.2.1 in the repo Smile .

Does anyone happen to know of a maven repo that does have xtext 2.2.1 available ? We did run into this problem with the Fornax maven plugin, which does not work with xtext 2.3.

Already tried the repo you refer to, but maven complains that tehre is no pom and thus no dependency information available. I can see the pom hoiwever, ni idea why maven cannot find it.

Try to load it with a nexus server, if you have one. It should work.

Can someone point me to the direction of the maven repository where the artifacts for 2.3 are located?

Is it possible (with the help of these maven artifacts) to convert the base DSL project to a pure maven project, such that the base DSL project is no longer a plugin project? (The ui project will of course stay a plugin project).

Thanks,
Felix
