If I run the chat demo through maven, mvn jetty:run it works fine
If I try to import it into Eclipse and debug there, I run into
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: file:/home/ak/jetty-6.1.15/contrib/cometd/demo/target/cometd-demo-6.1-SNAPSHOT is not an existing directory.
This makes sense, at line 99 in CometdDemo.java there is indeed a hardcoded reference to -SNAPSHOT , replacing it with 6.1.15 solves the problem.
So if this is indeed an issue (not sure why mvn jetty:run works) , then it's probably because the script that replaces SNAPSHOT before a release does not get run on svn externals?
Thank you for great software
