EGit pushes all local branches when no explicit RefSpec is found

Cloning a Git repository with EGit 1.0 and no further configuration causes some unexpected behavior. The moment you clone a repository, say from GitHub, everything is set up for you, and you are ready to push and pull. And since you fully adopted the Git workflow, you do create a new branch for every bug… Continue reading EGit pushes all local branches when no explicit RefSpec is found

XML Security tutorials now on GitHub

The German XML Security tutorials are now developed on GitHub. This does not affect the Eclipse XML Security Tools at all; the German tutorials will never be integrated there. The sources are only used to generate the tutorials available on my home page. I'm working on some content updates. As soon as this will be… Continue reading XML Security tutorials now on GitHub

Developers wanted

As you might know, I‘m the component lead for the Eclipse XML Security Tools. Since my time is very limited, I haven‘t done much lately. Which is sad, since XML Security is an important topic in the ever growing web services world. And Eclipse is a great platform! That‘s the reason why I‘m looking for… Continue reading Developers wanted

The org.eclipse.compare trouble

Recently we have upgraded JCrypTool from Eclipse 3.5 to Eclipse 3.6. And had to bring in a bunch of new plug-in dependencies since org.eclipse.equinox.p2.ui.sdk suddenly required org.eclipse.compare (and of course org.eclipse.compare required some more plug-ins). Thanks to Kai‘s Blog there is a solution for this problem now (or better a workaround). My question is, why… Continue reading The org.eclipse.compare trouble
