    Migration from JBossIDE 1.6 to JBossTools 3.0.1

    Oliver Roell Newbie

      Hi,

      I have developed for some years with Eclipse 3.1.2 and JBossIDE 1.6
      Now I have installed Eclipse 3.4.2 and JBossTools 3.0.1 and have two questions:

      1. How I can use XDoclet with JBossTools 3.0.1 for my J2EE 1.4 projects?

      2. Is it possible to convert the packaging-information from JBossIDE 1.6 into JBossTools 3.0.1, or do I must create complete new project archives from scratch for all my J2EE projects with the JBossTools 3.0.1?

      Thanks.

          Welcome to the new world ;)


          1. How I can use XDoclet with JBossTools 3.0.1 for my J2EE 1.4 projects?


          When we moved from JBossIDE to JBoss Tools we "cleaned up", and one of those things we removed were the custom xdoclet support we had because 1) noone were maintaining it 2) WTP contains same/similar xdoclet support 3) noone complained when we removed it almost 3 years ago 4) annotations is a much better model.

          That of course doesn't really help you, but just to give you some background.

          The best option you got is to try use the WTP xdoclet support or try and install the xdoclet plugins from JBossIDE into latest Eclipse (I don't know if that works though)


          2. Is it possible to convert the packaging-information from JBossIDE 1.6 into JBossTools 3.0.1, or do I must create complete new project archives from scratch for all my J2EE projects with the JBossTools 3.0.1?


          We actually did create a conversion tool for this back then and its mentioned/documented in this blog: http://blog.hibernate.org/Bloggers/FastAndIncrementalPackagingInJBossTools

          But we got very few (i.e. none really ;) asking to expand or make it easier to do so we did not push it more back then.

          You can try that script and if not let us know what didn't work and we can try and help out.
