[edit] Getting Started

Getting started with a PDE build can be daunting. Athena aims to make that simpler by streamlining the setup process by setting & creating logical defaults, but you can always extend and override.

To get started with Athena, you can read the following:

[edit] Requirements

Order of listed items below should not be taken as priority sequence. For prioritization, see Project Plan (Draft), or the following bugzilla queries:

[edit] End User

[edit] System

[edit] Implemented

Athena-CBI-Hudson.png
  • support for building on Linux only (no Win or Mac shared libraries) - can build on Win/Lin/Mac
  • builds must be reproduceable (tagging)
  • one build per project or component
  • mechanism for producing signed, packed, and digested update sites w/ p2 metadata (digest no longer required in Eclipse 3.4+)
  • support for Eclipse SCM systems (cvs + svn)
  • configuration to be done in Portal - cancelled to allow Athena to be portable enough to run at home, not just at eclipse.org
  • support for java-only, simple project builds (not products)
  • Other Closed Bugs

[edit] To Be Done

[edit] Cross-Project Integration

  • mechanism for optionally contributing update site feature(s) to a coordinated release site, a la Galileo

[edit] Enhancements

[edit] Implemented

  • support feeding dependencies to build from update site instead of from zips (Linux Tools uses CDT's update site zip as input; tests use generated project Update zip as runtime)
  • support SVN (map files are supported, psf support may be coming one day)

[edit] In Progress

  • convert bash scripts that “do work” to Ant scripts w/ custom tasks; submit these back to PDE build or releng.basebuilder for reuse

[edit] To Be Done

  • support getting latest dependencies from RSS feeds
  • support building & testing against multiple versions of target platform
  • provide source builds to facilitate the build-from-source scenario (eg., Linux distros)
  • automatic cleanup of downloaded/cached dependencies
  • support Buckminster
  • support Maven-based dependencies
  • convert bash scripts that “do calculations” to PHP-based web apis, so they can be called by web, shell, ant, or java (since UI is now Hudson is probably no longer required)

[edit] Sources

In order of currency:
