[eclipselink-dev] [IMPORTANT] Workspace changes - Get dependencies from Orbit (part 2)
As the 2nd phase of the changes below, the projects listed below have been
removed from our trunk SVN repository. The 1.1.0 repository will be updated as
soon as our 1.1.2 stream opens for check-ins.
Additionally, javax.persistence 1.0.0 and commonj.sdo 2.1.1 are available in
orbit and removed from our SVN repository.
If you have an existing view, it will continue to work until we update any of
the dependencies. Even so, I strongly suggest moving to the Orbit versions.
Instructions about moving can be found in the email below and here:
Let me know any problems you run into related to these changes and I will
work to solve them ASAP>

As part of our 1.1.1 release we are transitioning to use Orbit to get
any shared dependencies for EclipseLink projects.
Orbit is the Eclipse project that manages shared dependencies.
This means that people developing using the Eclipse projects that are
checked in to our SVN repositories will have to make some changes to
their workspaces. You will remove the following projects from your
workspace and replace them with the ones from Orbit. (Instructions
below the list)
Here is how you make the change:
1. Temporarily disable "Build Automatically" in the Project menu
2. Remove any of the above libraries you have in your workspace (you
don't need to check the "Remove from Disk" check box to do this)
3. Create a repository connection to the orbit repository (CVS URL is
:pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/cvsroot/tools). Do this by adding
the CVS repositories view in your Eclipse and right clicking to add new.
4. Navigate to HEAD/org.eclipse.orbit/<your_project> . (where <your
project> is the library above
5. Check your project out into your workspace. Note that the project
will be empty. (this is ok)
6. In the Navigator (or Package Explorer, etc) right-click on the
project and choose Replace With -> Another Branch or Version... and
select the branch that you want to work with. (the branch names are the
versions) The version next to the library name above is the one you want
If you have any problems, let me know.
If you are not running the eclipse IDE, CVS can be used through the URL
listed above to get the same libraries.
Note: The versions of these projects that are checked into SVN will be
disappearing soon, so making these changes now ensures you will not have
trouble when we upgrade versions of these libraries.
