Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Using maven artifacts directly in eclipse target platform / tycho builds


Improving the Maven compatibility is certainly a good idea, but for my (small number of) users the problem is the other way round. How to make Eclipse standalone project releases easily consumable by Maven. is an attempt by a user to contribute. is my fruitless attempts to actually publish via although I gather that is now going out of fashion.

As a naive traditional Eclipse releng I have successfully struggled to keep the P2 builds going. I see P2-to-Maven as a generic capability that the EF (or some skilled contributor) should solve on behalf of the community. As with downloads, when everyone does their own thing, it takes a lot of effort to produce an inconsistent mess.

Happy new year everyone,

I'd like to introduce a new feature in m2e / Tycho that supports the seaming-less integration for maven artifacts (OSGi and even non OSGi ones) to be used both in Eclipse IDE and Tycho Maven build.

This consists of two complementary features, a m2e extension for PDE that allows the adding/editing of a new target location type "Maven" and support for this location type in Tycho itself.

I have written a more detailed description in the following article [1].

I'd like to get some feedback so let me know if something is missing or bugs you encountered either via mailing-list, by directly contacting me or simply open a bug/enhancement in the m2e bugtracker [2], also please let me know if you think the article itself needs some deeper description of a given aspect of the new feature!

best regards
