Using the Object Teams Parent POM

Declaring this module as the parent of your project will add basic capabilities for using OT/J in your sources.

Include the parent pom

For simple cases two declarations in your pom will suffice:

  1. declare the maven repository for fetching Object Teams related modules
                            <name>Object Teams Repository</name>
  2. declare the parent pom

    Starting with version 2.1.1 the parent pom also supports using OT/J in tycho builds (projects using OSGi).


See the objectteams-compile-test project for an example of how to use this parent pom.

Under the hood

Standard OT/J dependencies documented

All OT/J projects using the objectteams-parent-pom implicitly depend on the following artifacts which are developed independent of maven and simply repackaged using the org.eclipse:objectteams-artifact-deployer module:

the Object Teams runtime repackaged from the org.eclipse.objectteams.runtime OSGi bundle.
the Java agent that hooks the Object Teams runtime into the JVM (repackaged from file otre_agent.jar from the org.eclipse.objectteams.otdt project).
a compatible replacement for org.eclipse.tycho:org.eclipse.jdt.core that enables the org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-compiler-jdt plugin to compile OT/J sources.

The following module is indirectly used:

the original apache bcel Byte Code Engineering Library.
