#Install to Project Repo A Python script for easily installing libraries to an in-project Maven repository. It creates a repository in the root folder of the project complete with poms, checksums and metadata. It also outputs the appropriate dependencies xml to be inserted in your pom file.

##What it does

  • When run in standard mode it looks for jars in the lib folder having name of Eclipse standard and ignores all files that don't match it. The Eclipse naming standard has the following format:

      groupId.artifactId[.source]_version[.SNAPSHOT].jar
    
  • When run in interactive mode (-i) it asks you to choose from the possible variants of name resolution. In this mode you can parse files of different naming standards.

  • When run with -d modifier it removes all successfully installed jars from the lib folder.

  • After successful installation of all jars it prints out all according dependencies for your pom.

##Using

Just run it from the folder containing your lib folder.

After the script is complete copy-paste the generated dependencies xml to your pom under dependencies tag and add the following under the repositories tag:

<repository>
  <id>project</id>
  <url>file://${project.basedir}/repo</url>
</repository>

For more details please read this StackOverflow answer.

##Example If the structure of the lib folder is as follows:

lib/
| - org.eclipse.e4.xwt_0.9.1.SNAPSHOT.jar
| - org.eclipse.e4.xwt.source_0.9.1.SNAPSHOT.jar

Running the script in standard mode will result in the project's repository of the following structure having been created:

repo/
| - org/
|   | - eclipse/
|   |   | - e4/
|   |   |   | - xwt/
|   |   |   |   | - 0.9.1-SNAPSHOT/
|   |   |   |   |   | - maven-metadata-local.xml
|   |   |   |   |   | - maven-metadata-local.xml.md5
|   |   |   |   |   | - maven-metadata-local.xml.sha1
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT-sources.jar
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT-sources.jar.md5
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT-sources.jar.sha1
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT.jar.md5
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT.jar.sha1
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT.pom
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT.pom.md5
|   |   |   |   |   | - xwt-0.9.1-SNAPSHOT.pom.sha1
|   |   |   |   | - maven-metadata-local.xml
|   |   |   |   | - maven-metadata-local.xml.md5
|   |   |   |   | - maven-metadata-local.xml.sha1

It will also print out the Maven installation process log info messages followed by this Maven dependency to be inserted in your pom:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.eclipse.e4</groupId>
  <artifactId>xwt</artifactId>
  <version>0.9.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
</dependency>
