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...
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.
