If building on build.eclipse.org, the infrastructure needed to do an Athena build is already in place. However, if you want to use a different version of basebuilder or common.releng, or if you want to use a different Hudson instance, you'll need to bootstrap your build in its workspace.

To run a self-contained and automatically bootstrapped build, you need to call bootstrap.xml from your build.xml script.

<project default="run">

<target name="run"> <ant antfile="bootstrap.xml" target="init"> <property name="basebuilderTag" value="r35x_v20090811" /> <property name="commonrelengTag" value="HEAD" /> <property name="ANTCONTRIB_VERSION" value="1.0b2" /> <property name="ANT4ECLIPSE_VERSION" value="1.0.0.M3" /> <property name="build.properties" value="build.properties" /> </ant> ... <condition property="JAVA_HOME" value="${java.home}" else="${java.home}/.."> <available file="${java.home}/bin/javac" type="file" /> </condition> ... <property name="build.properties" value="build.properties" /> <property file="${build.properties}" /> <ant antfile="${relengCommonBuilderDir}/build.xml" /> </target>


Note that all properties and even the target are optional; can simply do <ant antfile="bootstrap.xml"/> to use defaults.
