JSF has it to, it is what Snjezana uses for some of the Maven
integration we have.
afaik, she enabled that for Seam already. Something we need to see how
we get it applied to as
much as possible elsewhere too.
Just to be precise, we should *not* be using user defined libraries
(UDL) or come up with out own way of getting stuff online though.
UDL's are not sharable and there exist many (better) defacto ways of
getting libraries (i.e. maven, ivy etc.)
I think about this in context of
. Not sure it is so
necessary to have shared libraries for standalone applications. Maven,
ivy, etc, requires some additional steps and we don't need to obtrude
the frameworks upon users.
What does make sense is that we enable users to use these defacto
methods to decouple the library management from
the IDE and let it be used outside the IDE too. That is why the Maven
integration is so important.
The only place we plan on having IDE specific lib management is for
the classpath container of the server runtime -
that is where "Server provides the runtime" option comes to play. This
is what we should and do use for non-maven projects
and what we use today.
p.s. what is RedHatDevList ? I've added jbosstools-dev too.
the name of jbosstools-dev(a)lists.jboss.org. In the
first mail it was inserted as "RedHatDevList" instead of "RedHatDevList
<jbosstools-dev(a)lists.jboss.org>" by mistake and was not send to the others.
