WTP Gerrit Access

WTP source code is managed by the Eclipse Git repositories. After Gerrit process is enabled for the repository, there are a few changes to the existing way of accessing the repositories. This page contains information on how to access the Gerrit enabled WTP repositories via EGit using SSH. It also may help to set up the access to the WTP repositories even if other UI is used.

Please refer to the WTP_Git_Workflows for more detailed instructions on WTP development procedure.

Clone a repository for development

With Gerrit enabled, gitroot URLs like ssh://${GITUSER}@git.eclipse.org/gitroot/jeetools/webtools.javaee.git are ready only.

Push changes to Gerrit on port 29418: ssh://${GITUSER}@git.eclipse.org:29418/jeetools/webtools.javaee.git.

Here's the complete list of current repos, as of 2017-06-15. This list is subject to change as new repos are created or existing repos are merged.
