Description Jesse Glick 2004-09-28 16:42:18 UTC
There should be a new project wizard for existing
Eclipse project, which should detect the Eclipse
project configuration and attempt to construct a
NB j2seproject with more or less matching
semantics. Could place NB metadata (such as
nbproject folder) directly inside Eclipse metadata
folder, or somewhere else.

Could have checkbox to remove Eclipse metadata
(.classpath) from source roots at the same time -
off by default (but should probably add .classpath
to default file ignore list).

What is the status of this work?
Comment 2 Martin Krauskopf 2005-01-19 05:19:06 UTC
Ups, I didn't know about this issue. Sorry, reassigning to me....

The module should be complete and it is now tested by Pavel Rehak. I'm
waiting for the first report. It was already added to Alpha AU under
the infrastructure category (not sure if it is right one). But it
seems that there are some problem last 5 days or so and module is not
up-to-date. The safest version can be build from trunk with:

ant -f ide/projectimport/build.xml nbm

and install it manually to the current build.
The final specification is little different from proposal in this
issue. First draft is here:

So I think this is issue can be closed. The bugs and enhancment should
be reported under new category in IZ. Is that category already known
Honzo, Marian?

PS: I've just realized that I probably have to increase module version
to force build system to rebuild NBMs. But I'm not sure, I will check
it today with some people and correct it (if it is the case)

Comment 4 Martin Krauskopf 2005-01-19 09:09:57 UTC
There should be fresh version on Alpha AU after the next automatic
NBMs build. There is also new category in IZ - Component: ide,
Subcomponent: project import.
Comment 5 Pavel Rehak 2005-01-19 09:21:44 UTC
I started to prepare test specification (according to UI specification 
mentioned above) with package of validation eclipse projects 
importable to NB.
Expect first reactions next week.
I also contacted few eclipse users to test importer on real projects.
