Industrial SQL Connector for Mylyn updated for Eclipse 4.3 and Mylyn 3.9.0 (now version 0.9.10)

New activity at Bug 184532: [connector] Generic SQL connector meant it was time for a fresh look at the Industrial SQL connector for Mylyn.

New Kepler Platform Target

I have added a Kepler target platform with latest Mylyn and EclipseLink 2.4.2 for easy configuration Kepler Target I have updated the references In the MANIFEST.MF to point to Mylyn 3.9.0

Connector build with Maven/Tycho

I fixed the Tycho/Maven build so you can quickly get up to speed Tycho/Maven build

Fragment build with Maven/Tycho

In the process I made an interesting discovery about Tycho dependency resolution when compiling fragments. An Eclipse code fragment depends on a host plug-in. The PDE allows the fragment to use all dependencies of the host, even the ones marked optional. When building with Maven/Tycho these dependencies are not resolved. The fix was to add the required JAR to the Extra Classpath Entries of build.properties of the fragment. Extra Classpath Entries


Code for the Industrial SQL connector for Mylyn is hosted at EclipseLabs.
