Move to Git
Today, October 26, 2012, the source repository of the OpenCms module developer Eclipse plugin has moved from Subversion to Git, but remains hosted on the Sourceforge.net website. A request will be send to Sourceforge soon, to delete the old Subversion repository. Until then, urls to this repository should remain functional. The subversion repository will not be synced with the Git repository and will soon get out of date and eventually vanish.
Therefore, anyone who has checked out the source code from Subversion, should checkout the Git repository instead. When you have Git installed, you can use the following command on the commandline:
git clone http://git.code.sf.net/p/opencmsmoddev/git opencmsmoddev
New OpenCms Eclipse Plugin release
Today, October 15, 2012, Red Star Development published a new release of the OpenCms module developer plugin for Eclipse (version 0.0.9). This is a bugfix release that solves a problem that can occur on some configurations. The bug can prevent the plugin to connect to OpenCms or to prevent synchronisation of your files with OpenCms. In those cases an error message is shown and in the logfile of Eclipse, you can find a stacktrace that indicates a problem with Java reflection.
After this bugfix release, the plugin should communicate as expected with all versions of OpenCms from version 6.0 up to and including the latest 8.5.0 release
I advise all users to upgrade their plugin to this new version. You can read more general information about this plugin here.
