I was wondering why the Buckminster Eclipse IDE shows me a CSPEC for a Java Project (i.e when I right click on a freshly minted Java Project, then go to Buckminster, then go to "View CSPEC", I actually get what resembles a CSPEC.

What I would like to know is whether I can use this straight off the bat, if the project has dependencies and such?

If not, what work is required in writing the CSPEC for a plain Java Project?

Maybe that is the wrong way to go about it, maybe I should just convert any Java project that I need into a plug-in project? I guess I am sort of thinking about old legacy code that lives in a CVS somewhere.

Thanks

The CSPEC that ypu get (generated from the information) does not contain
very much information. To add dependencies, you write a '.cspec' file
and place it in the java project.
There is an editor for cspec.

What you can do, and how it works is described in the Buckminster Book
available from the Buckminster download site.

For components where you want to augment/decorate the discovered meta
data, a CSPEX (CSPEC extension) should be used instead of a CSPEC. This
is also described in the book.

I hope this gives you a starting point to explore this further.
