eclipse plugin dependencies [message #87688] Thu, 28 June 2007 18:47 Go to next message

My apologies if this has been discussed before, I didn't see anything in
the last several hundred posts.

I'm a little confused by the eclipse plugin dependencies. The teneo
plugin the creates the hibernate mappings simply reads from file (ecore
model) and writes to a file (hibernate.hbm.xml).

I don't understand why I have to modify the plugin dependencies of my
project that contains the ecore model in order for teneo to create the
mappings.

Are there any plans to change this?

Thanks,

Jerry

The Teneo menu option available to you when doing a right mouse click on an ecore file does not read
the ecore file itself but searches for the generated java EPackageImpl class and initializes it. The
Teneo plugin does this by launching a java program which runs using the classpath of the model
project itself. Otherwise it can't initialize the generated EPackageImpl class. For the creation of
the mapping file itself it needs also access to the Teneo plugins. As it uses the classpath of the
model project itself the plugins need to be in the classpath of the model project.
The reason that Teneo uses the initialized generated PackageImpl is that this allows Teneo to create
a mapping file which uses the generated java classes (for proxies etc.). The ecore file itself won't
give information on the generated java files.

I hope this explains it.

There are no plans to change this as I don't know another way of doing this through a menu option.
If anyone knows another/better way of accomplishing this then I am interested ofcourse.

Btw, You can always programmatically create a mapping file (look in the HbHelper class).
