Hi,

I checked out the WTP sources from CVS HEAD from within Eclipse so that
I can learn it's inner workings (and perhaps fix some rather irritating
bugs in the Tomcat server provider :-)

But after checking out lots of modules have build problems that I could
only fix by altering the checked out modules. Some of the fixes I needed
to make to get it (mostly) working are:
- Make Eclipse PDE fix the classpath for all of the checked-out modules
- Add a dependency on org.eclipse.wtp.common.environment to a lot of modules
- Add dependencies on org.eclipse.debug.core to some modules

etc.

The result does work more or less but it makes me wonder if I am doing
something wrong 8-/

I have the following questions:
1. Is it normal for the CVS head to be inconsistent or am I doing
something wrong?
2. Do I indeed need all of the modules present in CVS to build a
complete WTP? Are there obsoleted plugins or is there a list of stuff
one needs? Some of the modules do not build because of very basic
reasons like failing to provide many interface functions which leads me
to believe they are no longer maintained..

Thanks for your time in answering me ;-)

You may not be doing anything wrong, and there may also not be
anything wrong with the snapshot of HEAD as you checked it out.
Several plugins in WTP have requirements for building cleanly
according to PDE's rules when we actually create our builds and run
them.

You're not crazy.
