The Eclipse Common Build Infrastructure (CBI) is a combination of technologies and practices for building Eclipse Software.
A key goal of this project is to get Eclipse projects including the platform building on hardware hosted by the Eclipse Foundation. It is our hope that this project develops an offering that is compelling so that many projects will move to use it.
Preferred Build Technologies
Maven 3.0 drives the builds. Projects are expected to provide standard Maven 3.0 POM files for their builds. The builds should be built in such a way that they can be run on the local workstation, or on the Eclipse build server. Note that builds can only be signed on the Eclipse build server.
- Parent Maven POM for Eclipse projects;
- Signing Builds using Maven; and
- Maven repository support at Eclipse.
Tycho is focused on a Maven-centric, manifest-first approach to building Eclipse plug-ins, features, update sites, RCP applications and OSGi bundles.
