Duplicates GRADLE-3095 eclipse classpath - project root as s... Resolved


defining a srcDir "." results in an eclipse .classpath entry with path="." which eclipse does not like. looks like eclipse wants "" as path if the project root is defined as a src dir.

any way to solve this without manually modifying the generated classpath entry (whenMerged/withXml)? i would like to use the eclipse "refresh dependencies" feature which does currently not respect manual classpath modifications. (please do not ask about the project layout - i know this is terrible...)

Have you tried `srcDir projectDir`? If that doesn't help, I can't think of a solution other than modifying the generated classpath entry.

also generates path="."... for the time being, i will be modifying the entries manually. anyway i think gradle should perhaps generate a eclipse classpath entry with path="" when it has a srcDir "." - thanks, zyro

a possible approach to replace a srcDir "." with path="" in the generated .classpath could be adding an explicit check to SourceFoldersCreator. just like where the externals are trimmed, we could add sth like the following snippet here: https://github.com/gradle/gradle/blob/master/subprojects/ide/src/main/groovy/org/gradle/plugins/ide/eclipse/model/internal/SourceFoldersCreator.groovy#L29

// if a project root is defined as a srcDir, gradle works with a path="." while eclipse classpath wants path=""
regulars.find { it.path == "." }.path = ""

this also affects EclipseWtp component generation: there, the generated resource.sourcePath should be "/" instead of "."

Even if I have fixed the potentially bugs, see https://github.com/aaschmid/gradle/commit/f8e23929e0dfdfbdb9f0a3eb647cd37da23bb5ee, Eclipse Luna causes almost only problems by adding the projectDir to src/main/{java|resources} such that I suggest closing this issue with "Won't fix".
