This tutorial explains how to import Cargo sources from Subversion into your IDE (Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA are covered).

  • Install the latest version Maven2. Make sure it's installed properly by typing mvn --version.
  • Open a shell in the top level directory where you have checked out the Cargo sources.

For Eclipse users

  • Type "mvn eclipse:eclipse". This generates Eclipse files automatically.
  • Start Eclipse.
  • Go to Windows|Preferences|Java|Build Path|Classpath Variables and add a M2_REPO variable to point to your local Maven2 repository (usually in ~user/.m2/repository). See also the documentation on the Maven Eclipse plugin.
  • Select "Import|Existing Project into Workspace". Point it to the top level directory of the checked-out Cargo sources. You should see something similar to the following figure:

Note: Maven supports a nested directory structure whereas Eclipse currently only supports a flat structure. The Maven2 Eclipse plugin creates an Eclipse project per Maven module (i.e. per directory containing a pom.xml file). This means that directories with no pom.xml will not be listed. This is a known issue with Eclipse and Maven. In the future the hope is that Eclipse will support nested project structure.

For IntelliJ IDEA users

  • Type "mvn idea:idea". This generates IDEA project files automatically.
  • Start IntelliJ IDEA.
  • Select "File|Open Project..." and select the Maven-generated project as shown in the following figure:
