How to configure Alfresco Web Client with eclipse

Hi,

I'm currently trying to configure the web client project of the Alfresco sources in order to "auto-deploy" on a Tomcat server all the stuff.
(Without creating a war file...)
--> I'm currently working on the multilingual (internal) part of the project... i can't to use the standard extension way...
(The ant task take to much time - more than 6 minuts on my computer !!! )

I'm wondered that there is no eclipse project that is "pre"configured for that...

May be i'm wrong???

Let me know if you know another way to do that...

Thanks.

We (all developers at CIGNEX) use Eclipse to create, build, deploy and debug Alfresco applications and extensions.

It is very easy to create an eclipse project for Alfresco source.

Refer Alfresco wiki more information:

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_SDK

Alfresco wiki also provides very useful developer documentation at:

First of all, thanks for fast answer.

The way you show me is how to create an extension of Alfresco...
That's not my target!

I will have to modify the Core, Repository and WebClient part.
That's not the same as "simply extend".

Using the SDK is of course "easy"... because it's a jar you add to your web project and extend some configurations files.

In my case, I have to modify and recompile the Alfresco projects.
(I'm working on non existing new features of Alfresco).

Actually, the only way I found to deploy the project qwickly is:
- modify "by hand" the .project and .classpath eclipse files
- add the .settings repository + specifics files
- put libraries (alfresco dependencies) in the shared directory of Tomcat

By this way, the project is correctly deployed (I mean hot deploy from eclipse). I still have a context problem during starting of alfresco... but I guess this is due to a uncorrect configuration.

I suppose that the Alfresco developper team does not use the ant script to deploy (during they are developping i mean)... because it take to long.

Maybe there is a more simply way to deploy qwickly from eclipse without have to change the eclipse project definition of the WebClient project.
I din't found it...

Thanks for help.
