= aether-fitnesse-widget


One og the major issue with Fitness IMHO is the difficulty to calculate a classpath when using maven (including transitive dependencies).

The purpose of this widget is to dynamically calculate a classpath against a maven coordinnate "<groupId>:<artifactId>[:<extension>[:<classifier>]]:<version>".
It relies on aether (
Aether is a API to consume maven repos but It is not tied to maven Itself.
It should work the same for maven, Ant-Ivy or any product that use a maven repository.  


I'm looking for beta-tester !!! Don't hesitate to create issues, enhancement requests.

== HOW-TO:

  1. Grab aether-fitnesse-widget-<version>-jar-with-dependencies.jar from maven central repo or from GitHub.
  2. Create/edit a file named "" in the FitNesse server root directory. This must contain: 
  3. Start FitNesse. this way : java -cp fitnesse.jar:aether-fitnesse-widget-<version>-jar-with-dependencies.jar fitnesseMain.FitNesseMain
  4. You should be able to see :
     FitNesse (v20101101) Started...
        port:              80
  	  root page: at ./FitNesseRoot
  	  logger:            none
  	  authenticator:     fitnesse.authentication.PromiscuousAuthenticator
  	  html page factory: fitnesse.html.HtmlPageFactory
  	  page version expiration set to 14 days.
  	  Custom wiki widgets loaded:
  5. Create a FitNesse page with a reference to a artifact :
  !artifact groupId:artifactId:version
  This will load your projects classpath into the page. 
  You can customize the place of the local repo by providing a value for "LOCAL_REPO"
  !define LOCAL_REPO {/Users/pascalleclercq/my_alternate_repo}
  If not set, the maven's default value will be use : ${user.home}/.m2/repository.
  You can also define a remote repo where artifact can be downloaded if needed by providing a value for mutiple "REMOTE_REPO" 
  !define REMOTE_REPO {http://mycompany:9080/snapshots;http://mycompany:9080/releases;http://mycompany:9080/public}
  Experimental :
  Alternatively users may want to use their "settings.xml".
  The plugin looks for ${user.home}/.m2/settings.xml and configure local repo and remote repos based on this informations.
  To use this feature you need to configure the USE_SETTINGS_XML like this :
  !define USE_SETTINGS_XML {true}
  Users can speficy multiple artifact and can mix with more traditionnal !path widget :
  !artifact groupId1:artifectId1:version
  !artifact groupId2:artifectId2:version
  !path target/classes  

  Happy acceptance tests !!!
You can’t perform that action at this time.
