import projects from SCM: choose base folder? [message #500216] Wed, 25 November 2009 12:21 Go to next message

Folks;

while importing maven2 projects from SCM (SVN actually, in our case), I
usually ended up with my projects being dumped somewhere to

<workspace>/maven.<some-identifier>/...

and generally I don't really care. However, in some cases, in example after
discarding and re-importing a project from SCM, it gets dumped into another

<workspace>/maven.<whatever>/

folder, essentially in some cases messing up the project structure. So, how
to state that I want to have maven2 projects checked out, say, not to some
randomly generated folder but i.e. to <workspace>/maven-artifacts/ instead?

TIA and all the best,
Kristian

When you checkout projects into Eclipse workspace, m2e is expected to rename folder to match project name... What version of m2e are you using? Do you see anything interesting in eclipse .log or maven console?

No real error messages to be found in any of these places. Using the
latest stable m2eclipse in Eclipse 3.5.1 as far as I can tell. All my
maven2 artifacts live in an SVN repository

http://dev/pcsvn/bf4j/tags/stable-20091201-consolidated/

which I use to checkout / import them to Eclipse. The "stable-..."
parent folder, however, is not a maven2 project itself but "just" a
folder containing artifacts. Is this a problem?


Cheers,
Kristian

I am not able to access the url you provided. Can you provide publicly accessible url or describe layout of the project you're trying to import?

Igor;

sorry, I should have been more careful - indeed the SVN repository is
internally available only. As I am not allowed to open it up:

Well, it basically comes down to something like this

/
/trunk
|
/tags
|
/stable-20091202-consolidated/
|
/lib-core-api
/lib-core-impl
/pom-parent-basic
/...


So, basically, checking out the "stable-20091202-consolidated" tag ends
up with a handful of maven2 artifacts (pom, jar, war) in this very
folder. Hmmm, hard to describe - what kind of information would help you
any further here? In my case, it would just suffice being capable if,
i.e. checking out a tag or a branch like I did here, m2eclipse would use
the name of the tag/branch (stable-2009..., in this case) rather than
"maven.123124323" as project name in <workspace>.

TIA and all the best,
K.

This structure does not look like a maven project and checkout as maven project won't help you here, unless I am missing something.

Yes, that's eventually the problem: It's not a "maven2" project of
nested projects; at checkout time it basically is a collection of (just
loosely associated) artifacts. The only way "dependency" between these
is enforced is one project used for building them all easily, containing
something like

<modules>
<module>../mod1</module>
<module>../mod2</module>
<module>../mod3</module>
</modules>

which, in my case, fails if I delete and checkout one of mod[1|2|3]
again as by then it will end up in a different folder in <workspace>,
not where the projects checked out before did end up. Agreed, this
project structure eventually could be done smarter, but then again, it's
not totally against maven2 multi-module setup (especially in a "flat"
multiproject layout), and it generally works, IDE tooling support let
aside...

Cheers,
Kristian

On second thought, I did a little restructuring of my maven2 project
layout in SVN, so now things behave the way they are supposed to do.
Good. :) Thanks a bunch for your help on that!

It would be nice to have the same behavior when checking out to a custom
location. Could it be done?
