|[m2e-users] import project from git workflow|
I am not sure whether this is an m2e issue or another component's so let me know if I need to ask somewhere else I am trying to import a github repo into eclipse. Ideally i would like to do everything in a single wizard which 1) clones the remote repo locally, 2) generates the eclipse metadata 3) imports the project and leaves it ready to commit. This is exactly the current workflow with SVN and CVS using "Checkout Maven project from SCM": in one wizard you end up with a compilable/runnable/commitable project in your workspace Given that git is distributed, I think it's acceptable (not ideal) to have two steps (wizards), one where you only clone the repo, and another where you maven-import the projects in it. However even this doesn't currently work. From the git repositories view (or perspective) I can right click on the local clone and select "Import maven project". This scans my maven structure and lets me select which projects to import. This imports the project quasi-correctly: i can compile and run, however, i cannot commit. My eclipse project is not linked to the local repo even though i started the whole import by right clicking on it. Is this a bug? if I import from a repo i obviously want to commit to that same repo. Am I doing it wrong? is it m2e the one that handles these imports from a git repo? i know i can do "team/share project" but my point is that the fact you need to do this looks like a bug to me. What do you guys think? if someone agrees I will open a ticket for it if there's not one already Alejandro Endo | Software Designer/Concepteur de logiciels DISCLAIMER: Privileged and/or Confidential information may be contained in this message.
