Jetty 7.6 is required now. How am i supposed to get this, and what for is it required? Do i have to install 7.6 only in environments where i develop jgit/egit (to run tests, etc.) or is it a runtime dependency too?
For the "normal" RCP Devloper package of Eclipse 3.7.1 i'm unable to install jetty 7.6 as 7.5 is a dependency of the eclipse package... :*( i cannot compile without reverting your jetty related commits locally now.
Any hints? probably i'm just doing something wrong :)
I was struggling with this mess since some weeks until I found
this solution (maybe there is still a better one ?).
I updated the corresponding section in the contributor guide
but forgot to post this on the list.
I tried keeping Jetty 7.5 as an option to run the JGit tests but Jetty moved
a couple of classes to another package between these 2 releases :(
I tried to workaround using reflection but this became so messy that
I decided we better update the requirement to 7.6 instead of maintaining
a messy workaround. If somebody has a better proposal I am happy to
The only way I found to make this work in Eclipse 4.2 is to use a target
platform since Eclipse 4.2 comes with Jetty 8.1 and I wasn't able to install
Jetty 7.x on top of this since this ended in an installation conflict. I also
failed to uninstall the Jetty 8.1. We should try to sort this out until 4.2 SR1
in September. Target platforms are defined for 3.7 and 4.2 in
org.eclipse.egit.target on stable-2.0.
