Up until now I have been manually synchronising my IDEA project (*.iml) with the eclipse project (.classpath).
I had never really investigated the option of using the .classpath dependency storage format.
When I switched today an extra *.eml file appeared.
This contains entries like:
<lib name="ojdbc6.jar" scope="COMPILE">
However, it doesn't contain all the jars in my project.
The ones that are missing are referenced via path variables.
However, they do pop up if I attach source:
<lib name="commons-httpclient-3.1.jar" scope="COMPILE">
Why is that? Why aren't they in there from the start?
Is the classpath order taken from the .classpath file or the eml file or are they supposed to synchronised?
What happens if an eclipse user updates the .classpath file and I update from version control?
Will the eml file update automatically then I just check in the eml?
