If you use/pull the latest Git master branch, you can get ant/ivy to download the external library source jars by using the build command:
- ./ant build-withlibsrc
instead of the regular “./ant build”.
Our supplied Eclipse .classpath file already knows the locations to the framework source JARs - you only have to run that command to download/update them once in a while.
This provides the familiar maven-like ability to view the sources of third-party JARs in Eclipse, for the large majority of the core Scipio JARs - for example the Servlet API classes.
You can also configure your own hot-deploy modules ivy.xml/build.xml file to pull the sources when build-withlibsrc is run (I can give you on example if you need, just ask), but you’ll have to update the .classpath file.
