Re: [ee4j-community] Fw: Re: GlassFish Tools for GlassFish 5

+1

I saw similar issues first hand when e.g. SonaType had abandoned Maven support for WTP from M2E. A project manager at a client even convinced that client to switch to IntelliJ because of that problem. It persisted for a while but Red Hat, now also among the most important committers to M2E itself (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/technology.m2e/who) stepped in and spawned the M2WTP project.

So I am confident, the community will heal this even if one or the other committing member should not, I would not bet on a timeline, but it will get fixed.

Cheers,
Werner

Hi all,

This conversation is serving no purpose to push EE4J forwards. Can we
please refrain from these types of conversations on this list.
