Hello,

I exported my service to WAR but classes from projects listed in J2EE
module dependences are not included, only classes of main Dynamic Web
Project. Browsing inside WAR shows that:

- in WEB-INF/libs there are .jars of those dependant projects, but those
jars contain only META-INF/manifest.mf file
- in WEB-INF/classes those projects are not presented. Classes *was*
here, but not any more, what was changed AFAIK is that I switched
server from Tomcat 5 to 5.5 and back to 5 again.

I repeated cycle several times (create web servece, export to WAR) but
still dependent projects are not there...

Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks,

Mirza

The problem is the near empty dependant jars in the WAR's WEB-INF/lib.
Which version of Web Tools are you using? Also, if you add the project
to a Tomcat server, are the deployed dependant jars also near empty?

Cheers,
Larry

In Tomcat deployment directory, dependent jars are not there at all. But
jars that are added as external jars to module dependecies. Missing are
jars of dependent projects from my workspace (those are simple java
projects). WAR export, it seems, create those jars, but only with one
file: META-INF/manifest.mf.

I am using WTP 1.5.4

Mirza

Just to be sure, if you remove the project from the server, publish the
server, add the project back, and publish the server again, are the jars
for the dependent utility Java projects still missing?

Now those almost-empty-dependent-jars are not inside WEB-INF/lib. But
those dependent projects are correctly listed in Servers view, as
sub-nodes of dynamic project.

Unfortunately, I don't have any good ideas as to what could trip up the
jar creation in this manner. If you create a new "test" Dynamic Web
Project and new dependent Utility Java project with some test class, do
they exhibit the same behavior? I assume there aren't any seemingly
related errors in the Error Log view.

Small test project was good idea. I think I found something: seems that
dependent project works fine *IF* in "New Java Project" dialog it is set
to "project Layout -> create separate source and output folders". That
is *not* default setting and it seems that it is not possible to change
this setting for existing projects, except re-creating it.

As you may already be aware, there is a preference setting for
defaulting to separate source and output folders. In Eclipse 3.3, the
default is now "separate". In an existing Java project, you can open
the project's Properties dialog and select the Java Build Path page
followed by the Source tab. Click Add Folder and Create New Folder.
Enter a source folder name, such as "src", and click Finish followed by
OK. A dialog will pop up asking if it is okay to remove the project as
the source folder and use "bin" a new output folder. Answer Yes and
click OK to exit the Properties dialog. Another dialog will pop up
asking about removing the old build output. Answer Yes. You can now
click and drag the folders which still contain your source and drop them
onto the new source folder. This should get you to the same state as
selecting separate source and output folders when creating the project.

The key to properly "linking" utility project to web project is in the
org.eclipse.wst.common.component file found under the ".settings" folder
of both projects. My first notion is that something may be amiss in
these files. You may want to examine these files and see if you can
make some sense out of them. Maybe compare what you see in some working
test projects with what you see in your problem projects. In a quick
test of the above "separate source and output folder project
conversion", the org.eclipse.wst.common.component file was updated
properly. If you haven't already altered or recreated those Java
projects, you might give the conversion a try and see if it fixes the
org.eclipse.wst.common.component file (assuming that is the problem).
My only other shot in the dark guess would be that the problem projects
need to be refreshed in your workspace, though I think it's likely you
have already tried that.

Cheers,
Larry
