Notes on Updating Eclipse

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2006 17:32:01 -0400 (CLT)

For future reference.  When updating Eclipse:

- get AspectJ plugin http://www.eclipse.org/ajdt/
- get the Web Tools Project plugin http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/
- update the aspect runtime jar in the war
- update the Ant build path

If there's a recurrent error from the outline look in .metadata/.log and,
if approrpiate, delete component info (missing editors) from the main xml
config.

Is it just me, or is the Eclipse site complete un-intuitive?

Install Tomcat + MySQL
Delete old .project
Create new project using existing source.
Convert to AspectJ (right click menu item in left pane)
Add servlet-api to build path (from tomcat install)
Add catalina-ant.jar to ant build path
Download + add sqlunit.jar to ant build path
Add ajde.jar to ant path
Add aspectjweaver.jar to ant path
Add aspectjrt.jar to ant path
Add org.eclipse.core.runtime.jar to ant path
Check build.properties for changed paths

Possible replacement for web tools?  Ah, it seems to include that, and
more - http://www.eclipse.org/callisto/callistoprojects.php

AspectJ + Eclipse STILL Broken?

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Sun, 9 Jul 2006 17:09:40 -0400 (CLT)

I had been running (iirc) Eclipse 3.1.2 with AspectJ 1.3 (not 1.3.1)
because of problems with the automatic compile (search the AspectJ mailing
list).

Today, from some stupid reason, I decided to auto-update.  The problem
re-occurred.  So I deleted eclipse, downloaded 3.2, and installed that. 
With Callisto and AspectJ I had the same problem.  Luckily I have the old
installers so I'm back again with 3.1 and 1.3.

If AspectJ is this flakey, is anyone else using it?  I'm owrried I made a
mistake in choosing it.

Eclipse + AspectJ Working!

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2006 17:44:52 -0400 (CLT)

I started to have problems with Eclipse 3.1 and AspectJ 1.3.0.

So today I tried re-installing Eclipse 3.2 with the latest AspectJ package
(1.4.0) - and it all works!  Errors are flagged correctly.

At last.  Sweetness.  Note that I did not install anything from Callisto
this time - I'm just using basic Eclipse 3.2 plus the AspectJ stuff.
