Orbit Source Bundles In Your Build

From Eclipsepedia

Note: This has been updated to describe individual JAR'd source bundles and not the old-style expanded directory source bundles.

Typically source features are being generated as part of the build. To change your build to consume Orbit source bundles, you will need to find the build.properties requesting the creation of the source feature (it usually appears in the build.properties of the SDK feature including your source feature) and append an entry for each of the source plug-in you are re-consuming from Orbit to the generate@ property. The format of these entry is:

	plugin@<pluginId>;version=<pluginVersion>.qualifier;unpack=false

For example, the build.properties of the org.eclipse.sdk feature has now the following format

generate.feature@org.eclipse.platform.source = org.eclipse.platform,\ 
                                       plugin@javax.servlet.source;version=2.4.0.qualifier;unpack="false",\
                                       plugin@javax.servlet.jsp.source;version=2.0.0.qualifier;unpack="false"

Of course, you will also need to update your map files to reflect the location of the Orbit source bundles.
