I would love that framework vendors focus first on command-line integration with tools like Maven and Ant, and then provide IDE integration for a few popular environments, including Eclipse, Netbeans, and my personal choice, Intelli J IDEA.
This would reinforce competition between IDE vendors instead of killing it while considerably lowering the barrier to entry to their frameworks.
And each time I find a specific example, I get answers like “yeah, but that’s just one thing”, or “I’ve never had that, you’re not lucky”, or “this is just because you’re not used to the Eclipse way of doing things”, or even the worst one “maybe yes, but it’s free! I didn’t know about the expression but I’ve definitely danced it more than once: every now and then, Eclipse views get all mixed up, some views indicate errors in a file, while other views on the same file say everything is OK.
The collaboration server is comprised of dozens of third party Java libraries, and managing those libraries is a cumbersome process.
If you would like to attempt to install Maven by hand here is a discussion which includes some suggestions Available in apt-get/yum package managers.
If anyone is still building the server on Windows they can please fill in these details.
Maybe you need a Ph D to configure this, so I’ll come back again in a couple of months (hopefully :-)).
But hey, I’m a developer, and I should scratch my own itch, so why not develop a Maven plugin that does what I want? But after two weeks of work (by work I mean the only half hour available to me each day to work on this, excluding weekends) I found myself with a simple Maven plugin that is able to copy a file from here to there, but the learning curve is a steep. The Java only project is ), using plugin specific configuration to select the dependencies.
