Minerva

Minerva is the Maven version of Athena.

At the moment, the code is hosted at GitHub but the plan is to have it hosted at eclipse.org...

git clone git://github.com/caniszczyk/minerva.git

Building

To build the project from the command line after checking the code out, simply run

mvn -Dskip.ui.tests clean install

In Maven, the parent pom.xml serves as the central point on adding things to the build. It's also generally the most complicated piece of the build as it contains information that is shared by children pom.xml files.

The first part of the parent pom.xml we'll look at contains identifying information:

...
<groupId>org.aniszczyk.minerva</groupId>
<artifactId>minerva-parent</artifactId>
<version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
<packaging>pom</packaging>

<name>Minvera Parent</name>
...

The second part contains profile information and where to get dependencies.

  <properties>
    <tycho-version>0.10.0</tycho-version>
    <platform-version-name>helios</platform-version-name>
    <eclipse-site>http://download.eclipse.org/releases/${platform-version-name}</eclipse-site>
    <wikitext-site>http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/weekly</wikitext-site>
    <swtbot-site>http://download.eclipse.org/technology/swtbot/${platform-version-name}/dev-build/update-site</swtbot-site>
  </properties>

The third part lists the modules (e.g., features, plug-ins) that are part of the build:

  <modules>
    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva.core</module>
    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva.ui</module>

    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva-feature</module>
    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva.source-feature</module>

    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva.tests.core</module>
    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva.tests.ui</module>

    <module>org.aniszczyk.minerva-updatesite</module>
   </modules>

Features

Features simply reference the parent pom and have a packaging attribute of eclipse-feature.

Here's a pom.xml snippet from the minerva feature:

  <parent>
    <groupId>org.aniszczyk.minerva</groupId>
    <artifactId>minerva-parent</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  </parent>

  <artifactId>org.aniszczyk.minerva-feature</artifactId>
  <packaging>eclipse-feature</packaging>

  <name>Minerva Feature (Incubation)</name>

Plug-ins

Plug-ins simply reference the parent pom and have a packaging attribute of eclipse-plugin.

Here's a pom.xml snippet from the minerva core plug-in:

  <parent>
    <groupId>org.aniszczyk.minerva</groupId>
    <artifactId>minerva-parent</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  </parent>

  <artifactId>org.aniszczyk.minerva.core</artifactId>
  <packaging>eclipse-plugin</packaging>

  <name>Minerva Core Plug-in</name>

Repositories (Update Sites)

Plug-ins simply reference the parent pom and have a packaging attribute of eclipse-update-site.

Here's a pom.xml snippet from the minerva site:

  <parent>
    <groupId>org.aniszczyk.minerva</groupId>
    <artifactId>minerva-parent</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
  </parent>

  <artifactId>org.aniszczyk.minerva-updatesite</artifactId>
  <packaging>eclipse-update-site</packaging>
