Cannot debug using demo app in Eclipse if version is not updated in pom.xml

It is it normal for the Eclipse IDE Resolve/Run Browse Repos panel to be empty? I just checked with another dev and it was empty for him also. When the Core Runtime is selected it just says
Loading Content… forever…

To clarify and answer my question. I was trying to debug a binding using the instructions https://www.openhab.org/docs/developer/ide/eclipse.html under the Debug section, by editing the pom.xml and uncommenting the section that refers to the binding name.

When following those instructions, you won’t be able to resolve/run anything. The window is empty as above.

This is because in the beginning of the pom.xml there is a hardcoded/default section that defines a version, which can be out of date.

<version>2.5.1-SNAPSHOT</version>

And if you have checked out the current tree (as of this writing) the version is 2.5-2-SNAPSHOT. Once you fix the version number to agree with the binding version, then it will work.

Perhaps the instructions should be updated to mention this.

I’ve created a PR to update it :slight_smile: :
