The WORoot is necessary because the EOAdapter and especially the EO-ReverseEngineer-Tool are needing some classes out of WebObjects-Jars.

Due to the current licence this WebObject-Jars are not allowed to be bundled and shipped with WOLips. Therefore the Wolips-Tool in that area has the workaround to modify the eclipse-classpath OnTheFly to include the Jars from WORoot.

Best Regards,

Subject: [WO-DEV] Re: Source for the deployed archetypes on
I bet you need to talk to Henrique :)

I've been looking into making some new archetypes for a basic woapp and framework.  Some observations,

Adding the wocommunity repos in the pom.xml <repositories> and <pluginRepositories> allows me to build a woproject in maven successfully without any additional magic, which is great. This is almost to the point where to do WO Dev, all you need is eclipse, install wolips, and then create a new maven project with the archetype. Three easy steps.

The only snag I've found so far is the EOModel creation wizard in WOLips. The Adaptor: and PlugIn: popup menus are empty and trying to click finish produces an index out of bound exception instead of a new model. It's easy to work around this by creating a plist file like,


with a contents of

EOModelVersion = "2.1";
adaptorName = JDBC;
connectionDictionary = {};
userInfo = {};

That's enough to get it to open in EOModeler, but it would be nicer if the wizard worked without a WORoot configured. Realistically, nobody is going to use anything other than adaptorName=JDBC anyway, but the wizard could use a hard coded default list (JDBC,LDAP) if WORoot is empty. Nobody is making new adaptors.

Hi all,
does anyone know where the sources for the currently deployed maven archetypes (2.2-SNAPSHOT) on are? 
The WOCommunity WOLips repo has sources ( but these seem, well, ancient.
