Automatic project update in eclipse

buildship
eclipse

I installed version 2.0 of buildship and are playing around with it. When adding new dependencies to a project, it is necessary to update the eclipse classpath. As described on stackoverflow this is manually possible using the context menu.

Is there a way to automatically update the classpath, when the build.gradle file is changed?

There’s no out-of-the box functionality for that. We have different priorities for the time being. In the meanwhile, if somebody wants to implement it, we are happy to guide them through the process.

Agree - this is a very ugly, uncomfortable situation: Eclipse and Buildship are out of sync! A plugin tool integrating in IDE which gives the rules for project dependencies and sanity can not stand aside and let the user do this task manually.
