How and what to check out from CVS? [message #570733] Tue, 04 December 2007 12:52

I am a bit lost re. the cosmos CVS organization and how to convert
(parts of) it into eclipse projects again.

When I look into the CVS then the content seems to be a load of *nested*
Eclipse projects (some actually doubly nested)!
But - at least to my knowledge - Eclipse doesn't support "nested"
projects - or am I missing something here?

So, if I check out the top-node (org.eclipse.cosmos) I end up with a
strange mess of things. There is ONE big project, that contains
everything but nothing is built in it, because it's .project contains no
"buildSpecs" and no "natures". Then there is a list of maybe 20 projects
which are partly put into my \JavaDevt-folder (where I usually save
things), partly in my .workspace folder (no idea, who/what controls what
ends up where). Most of these projects show build and/or compile errors
because they can't find libraries or references to other projects etc.

The same holds true, if I check out the the next "layer" of nodes (i.e.
only data-collection or data-reporting individually).

Is one really supposed to traverse the CVS and check out all the
leaf-projects individually? There are, I would roughly estimate, about
50 of them, so this would take quite some effort and at least an hour
just to check out the files from CVS. Tell me, that this is NOT what is
expected, please!

So, what is the correct approach to get all or a subset (like
"data-collection") out of the CVS and building in optimal time?
