[GRADLE-1817] Tooling API: keep source roots in sync with content root Created: 29/Sep/11  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 1.0-milestone-4

Type: Bug

Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0


Get a view to the 'gant' project via the Tooling API (ProjectConnection.getModel(BasicIdeaProject.class)). That holds the following data for the module 'gantgroovy1.8'_:

  • module content root is 'gant_groovy1.8';
  • module has a source root 'src/main/groovy';

The problem is that the source root doesn't belong to the file system tree defined by the module content root. That is not supported by IntelliJ IDEA. Basically, the API should expose the second content root for the module then (it's possible to have more than one content root per-module where every content root has a number of its source/test roots).

gant project maintains the idea configuration in *.iml and *.ipr checked in to the VCS. It is a sort of specialized configuration and if you try to generate idea metadata for this project it's not going to work well. Same for the tooling api.

However, I see the issue with source folders living outside of the content root. I'll see if I can fix it.

The problem is that the second content root points to some upper folder that is already a content root for the parent project. IDEA doesn't like that E.g. I cannot have 2 modules in Idea that have the same content root.

So I don't think we will solve this case soon because it requires completely different approach.
