New Release of MT4E

Note: This post is now obsolete since there is a newer release.

I just finished a new release of Maven Tools 4 Eclipse. It’s not written in Groovy and supports all the features of the old Python version plus a few new ones.

You can find instructions how to use it on the wiki page.

For now, you need to build the tool from source (which needs 1.4-SNAPSHOT from DecentXML) using Maven. I’m in discussion with the people at Eclipse to get a download link for the binary.

Update: The project page now has a download link.

  1. Thanks for your brilliant work.

    Are there any chances that BIRT 3.7 will appear in the repository?

    Best wishes

      I’m working on a repo which contains everything from Eclipse 3.7 but right now, my job takes a lot of my time.

      On top of that, 3.7.1 was released some time ago and I’m not 100% sure how to handle that (everything in one repo or two repos).

    I know this isn’t the place to ask questions but…
    I have a problem when I try to run the last version
    I’ve created a directory named extrator_jar, pasted m4e jar and created a downloads directory.
    Inside this directory I’ve putted the eclipse-jee-indigo-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz file and all jar files needed by birt runtime.
    When I run the application it returns this:

    java -jar org.eclipse.dash.mt4e-0.9.0-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar convert org.eclipse.dash:dependency-management:3.7.1
