Context:

My workspace is set up as follows:

~/workspace/gsoc-phase1-fork2/
net.sf.j2s.ajax
net.sf.j2s.core
net.sf.j2s.java.core
net.sf.j2s.lib
net.sf.j2s.ui
org.eclipse.draw2d
org.eclipse.draw2d.examples/
src/
org.eclipse.draw2d.examples/
AbstractExample.java
ExampleImages.java
ExampleUtil.java
HelloWorld.java
RemoteSystemsTempFiles
test
testj2s

HelloWord.java in org.eclipse.draw2d.examples is the project I am attempting to compile. org.eclipse.draw2d is on the Java2Script build path for org.eclipse.draw2d.examples.

Expected Behaviour:

When running org.eclipse.draw2d.examples.HellowWorld.html, the classes in org.eclipse.draw2d should be loaded correctly.

Actual Behaviour:

When running org.eclipse.draw2d.examples.HellowWorld.html, the classes in org.eclipse.draw2d cannot be found.

Additional Information:

I believe this is caused by the build path not being set up correctly by j2s. Here's a snippet from the onload function generated by j2s in org.eclipse.draw2d.examples.HellowWorld.html:

ClazzLoader.packageClasspath (["org.eclipse.draw2d.parts", "$.widgets", "org.eclipse.draw2d", "org.eclipse.draw2d.text", "$.internal", "$.geometry", "$.graph"], "../bin/");

I believe this is the code that sets up the classpath for org.eclipse.draw2d. It appears as though it registers the classpath to "../bin", where it should be "../org.eclipse.draw2d/bin". It seems likely that this is what is causing the unexpected behaviour.

Workaround:

I've worked around this by creating a symlink in the root of my workspace called "bin" which links to org.eclipse.draw2d/bin
