Re: [wtp-dev] Understanding Runtimes and Multiple facets

Great thank Konstantin. 

The missing peice of the puzzle was making a facet compatible with any runtime - as the Maven facet isn't runtime aware :)

A runtime has to support all of the facets installed on a project in order to be selectable. A runtime is supposed to define completely the environment in which the project will be running in. Since you say you have created runtime support mappings for the "jst.jbi.bindingcomponent" facet, I can only assume it's the "jst.maven" facet that's preventing the runtime from being selectable. If a facet does not have any specific runtime requirements (besides those requirements already specified by facets it depends on), it needs to declare so explicitly. Here is an example:


<extension point="org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.runtimes

    <runtime-component any="true
    <facet id="jst.maven


Hope this helps,

Subject: [wtp-dev] Understanding Runtimes and Multiple facets



I am having a bit of a rough time understand how multiple facets and runtimes work.

I wanted to have a project with three facets:
jst.jbi.bindingcomponent <- New JBI support
jst.maven <- Support for Apache Maven via facet

I have runtimes configured to support jst.jbi.bindingcomponent .. However,  they never get enabled,  it seems the filters on the runtimes exclude a runtime because any of the facets aren't supported? Does this mean that a runtime needs to support all the facets of a project to be used with it or was the intention that if your runtime supports one of the facets then you use it?

For an example of what I mean I patched the following to allow a runtime to be added in the properties?
