|[virgo-dev] Reactivation of Virgo Snaps project|
I have invested some time to move the Virgo Snaps project from Ant/Ivy to Gradle build . I pushed those changes to a new branch (development) into the repository . The build now allows to build Snaps using the following options on the command line:
./gradlew clean build snapsDist -x :org.eclipse.virgo.snaps.test:test
Currently the 'test' task of the 'org.eclipse.virgo.snaps.test'
sub project must be excluded as I was not able to get it to work
until now. Anyway, it relies upon the Virgo test framework which
we want to replace with PaxExam as I understood from previous
conversation on virgo-dev. So, maybe we could directly move those
integration tests using PaxExam instead of getting it to work with
the old Virgo test framework.
I also created a Hudson job for building Virgo Snaps from development branch .
The project can now be imported using Gradles Buildship plugin in Eclipse/STS. I will additionally add Markdown Documentation files to the project later this week.
@Stefan Zugal: If you're still up to this you can checkout the project 'git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/virgo/org.eclipse.virgo.snaps.git --recursive' and give it a try. Let me know if you face some issues. If importing to your IDE works as expected please test it using one of the latest builds of Virgo for Tomcat server and let us know if it works or not.
