Hey Nabeel,

(copying forge-users list)

Could you paste the compilation error and as much info as possible?

Wondering what went wrong.

Hello Nabeel,

I only installed the angularjs plugin from JBDS 7.1.CR1 which includes Forge 1.4.3 (IIRC).
Can you try with that version and let us know if it still fails ? In that case, can you post the compilation error ?

Thanks !
Best regards,

Hello Lincoln, Xavier,

I recently saw Xavier give a presentation on the different JBoss Tools, amongst them JBoss Forge.  I decided it would be very cool to use to get up and running and attempted to use it.

However, I seem to be struggling quite a bit with a few issues:
- First and foremost, when I try to install-plugin for anything jboss-as7, angularjs, etc… they all fail and I get compilation errors from the maven-compile plugin.  I don’t get why.  I’ve checked the versions of everything and nothing really stands out:
maven 3.0.5
java 1.6 and java 1.7
using JBDS 7.0.1 (tried it embedded in JBDS and directly from the command line)

Ran the maven command with -X but the extra debug info is pointless as it’s just a compilation error.

When it runs the build, it copies all the source files to a temp folder. I did try to copy it during the process locally (cause it does a clean at the end) and can see that some files are potentially missing from the source. Not sure if it’s just because of when I copied, or due to the failure of the compilation, but I wanted to report this and get your thoughts.

Any suggestions? As I spent quite a bit of time trying to get this to work and then just gave up on it as it was faster to write the code manually then try to figure it out at the time.
