    • Windows 7, running STS with JDK 6

    Description

      In the "Spring Roo Project" wizard, the option for "Use external location" does not work as expected for me.

      • My workspace location is C:/Apps/springsource/sts-3.0.0.RELEASE/workspace
      • Click on "Spring Roo Project" in the STS dashboard's "Create" section
      • Project name = foo, package = com.foo
      • Use external location = C:/temp

      Expected:
      Wizard creates new project in C:/temp/foo with help of Roo project command, imports that project into the Eclipse workspace.

      Actual:
      It seems like Roo generates into this external location, but then Eclipse creates the actual project in a workspace folder.

      Two folders are created, C:/temp/foo and C:/Apps/springsource/sts-3.0.0.RELEASE/workspace/foo.
      C:/temp/foo contains

      • src folder
      • log.roo
      • pom.xml
      • .classpath
        C:/Apps/springsource/sts-3.0.0.RELEASE/workspace/foo contains
      • bin folder
      • .settings folder
      • .project
