I'm reading the book Harnessing Hibernate, and though my project compiles just fine from the command line, I'd like to use it in Eclipse.
The project uses the Maven ANT Tasks
, and though I've used both ANT and Maven by themselves with Eclipse, I've never used the Maven ANT Tasks
along with Eclipse.
I tried importing my existing project into my eclipse workspace by way of the File -> New -> Project ...
and then selecting Java Project from Existing Ant Buildfile
, then I select my ANT build file, and I am presented with the following error:
Error occurred creating project
Problem setting the classpath of the project from the javac classpath: Reference dependecy.class.path not found.
The project appears in Eclipse, but there's obviously something wrong.
I've tried adding an environment variable in my project to point to the maven repo (M2_REPO), without any luck, although eclipse appears to acknowledge that the classes withint the jars are present.
Here is the build file from Harnessing Hibernate:
As you can see the dependency.class.path
classpath entry that eclipse complained about, is that which specifies the list of dependencies from the maven ant tasks
