Eclipse Related Migrations affecting Scout Projects

Juno (3.8,4.2)

Since Eclipse itself changes from version to version too, this chapter shows the upgrade actions for Scout projects based on Eclipse Indigo to migrate to Eclipse Juno.

Eclipse 3.8/4.2 vs. Scout 3.8
If you only upgrade Scout but don't upgrade Eclipse itself you do NOT have to do the following upgrade actions. They are only necessary if you would like to use Eclipse Juno.


Jetty Plugins been changed (see also Incompatibilities News). Therefore the plugin.xml of the server plugin needs to be updated:

Remove the plugins:

     <plugin id="org.mortbay.jetty.server"/>
     <plugin id="org.mortbay.jetty.util"/>

Add the plugins:

     <plugin id="org.eclipse.jetty.continuation"/>
     <plugin id="org.eclipse.jetty.http"/>
     <plugin id=""/>
     <plugin id=""/>
     <plugin id="org.eclipse.jetty.server"/>
     <plugin id="org.eclipse.jetty.servlet"/>
     <plugin id="org.eclipse.jetty.util"/>
