Creating a Ghost project? [message #1441113] Thu, 09 October 2014 09:21 Go to next message

Hi!

I have a project "A" with its owns structure and I cant run it in weblogic in Eclipse.
I can not change anything.

Is it possible to create a "ghost project" "B" that links java classes and beans from project A.
That "ghost project" "B" should build it the Eclipse way and all classes in its own location.
Then I could easily add it to weblogic and debug it as is.
So all source code should remain in project A but classfiles end up in project B.

Is that possible?
Strange question Smile

Have you tried using this application as a JAR library to your ghost
project? I don't understand exactly what you mean by "I cannot change
anything."

I have tought about this jar fil solution. But I want to be able to change the source code and do hotdeploy.

The structure of the project A is what it is and its politicaly imposible for me to change it.
You know corporate decisions! Smile
I just have to find a easy way around the problem and use eclipse features to improve my work.

This is really nothing more than a Java question, but Eclipse can help
you work around it.

Assuming the application is distributed as a JAR or, if a package such
as Debian or RPM, you can nevertheless pull the JAR out from it, you
create your new project (B) and just use project A's JAR as a JAR
library to consume all the classes you want from it. Project B gets
built as a new deliverable, and happens to have the old deliverable
inside (it just doesn't use the main()).

Does this help?
