Every tutorial that I’ve seen on multi-project builds assumes a hierarchical code base structure:
I cannot rejigger the source repo to match this. I have 2 top-level projects with lots of code copy/pasted between them that I desperately want to factor out into a new library project that both projects can reference.
But I cannot figure out how to do this short of stuffing the 2 existing projects into the library project, which is just a deal breaker for me.
Is there way to reference another project that lives at the same level as current one?
Here’s my workspace:
/myLib (the new one I want to create)
I’ve tried this in myClient1:
But it fails to find “myLib” in the same directory, which makes sense so far, but:
I was hoping it just walk up (…/) from the currect directory and find myLib project, but it failed.
At the end of the day, I need myLib.jar visible to myClient1 and myClient2 during compilation and also materialized in those projects buildspace (to be RPM’d).
Can anyone please help me with this?
