I am interested in using UOMo, but I am not sure how it should be downloaded and used. The download link on the project page simply lists some update sites. How are these intended to be used? It seems like it has something to do with OSGi, which I haven't used much.

If it is possible, I think that distribution via Maven central or the Eclipse Maven repository would reach a greater number of users. This seems like a very promising project. Thanks for all the hard work you've put in so far.

Dear David,

Thanks a lot for your interest in using UOMo. Sorry for the slightly delayed
reply, I am traveling to events and conferences quite a bit these days.

While in incubation, the download link is the prime source to download and
install an Eclipse project, though UOMo currently does not rely on Eclipse
IDE features as such, thus it can be used as a pure "library", too.

MavenCentral has quite a few Eclipse projects now
http://search.maven.org/#search%7Cga%7C1%7Corg.eclipse
but I assume, it needs at least a Milestone or 1.0 release of a project like
UOMo to be published there.

We'll raise the question with PMC. Sorry for having to use the P2/Eclipse
update link for the binaries at the moment.

If you're fine building UOMo from sources, running Maven Install into the
local Maven repository will certainly work. Allowing you, to access
individual libraries directly from Maven instead of OSGi/P2.

To ensure Hudson CI flags any issue in the code immediately, we run a full
build, but if you want, comment out the "examples" module, the build will
work without it (we hope to add a Maven profile for such exclusions in th
near future;-)
<!-- module>examples</module-->

The 2 Eclipse launchers like "Maven Install"
(http://git.eclipse.org/c/uomo/org.eclipse.uomo.git/tree/releng/Maven%20Install.launch)
show all the necessary arguments to build UOMo locally using Maven.
If you prefer command line or another IDE, that should also work, thanks to
Maven you are not bound to Eclipse, although PDE works better inside
Eclipse.

Regards,
Werner

David/all,

Beside MavenCentral where UOMo (and unless it's already on its way Unit-API)
shall ultimately be deployed, Eclipse has a somewhat smaller repository of
its own: http://maven.eclipse.org

I'll ask Eclipse EMO or Webmasters, how and at what stage Eclipse projects
like UOMo could be published there.

Werner
