|[wtp-dev] WTP integration in the IAM project proposal|
Hello guys, We at the http://www.eclipse.org/newsportal/thread.php?group=eclipse.technology.iam IAM (Integration for Apache Maven) project proposal have developed some working integration with WTP for web projects. As you know, maven proposes a model where the project descriptor has all the information for building, packaging, etc... Our initial integration effort will focus on applying the configuration described on this file to the Eclipse/WTP environment. Current WTP support has been developed for WTP 2.0 on top of the facet framework and utility classes like UpdateClasspathAttributeUtil. Implementation is quite simple and http://q4e.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/plugins/maven/wtp/core/src/org/devzuz/q/maven/wtp/core/postprocessor/WtpEnablerPostprocessor.java available for browsing the project's svn : http://tinyurl.com/6he4sr. When testing against the 3.0 milestones, we've noticed some API changes that break our current implementation (most notably, method signature changes on UpdateClasspathAttributeUtil.createDependencyAttribute()) : http://tinyurl.com/5qggv2 I would like open a communication channel between IAM and WTP to enhance current integration. Our first round of questions: - Would it be possible to keep UpdateClasspathAttributeUtil backwards compatible? (i.e. a version with a a single parameter calling the new version with a default value for "isClassFolder", probably using "false") - What are the best places to start looking to automate Java EE project configuration? (i.e. configuring facets) - Is there support for automatic deployment of projects referenced through a Classpath Container? For example, for webapps, have the compiled classes of dependent projects deployed under WEB-INF/classes. Pointers to extension points or "hooks" on the deployment process would also be useful.
