The process to run a build in Eclipse is getting ever easier.

Contents

Fetch workspace projects

1. Download a .psf file, such as gef.psf

2. Open Eclipse, and do File > Import > Team > Team Project Set. Browse for the .psf file you downloaded above, and import it. You should end up with three new workspace projects.

org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder
org.eclipse.dash.common.releng
org.eclipse.gef.releng

3. Download ant-contrib.jar 1.0b2 (NOT 1.0b3!) and put it into org.eclipse.dash.common.releng/lib/ant-contrib.jar.

Configure build.properties

4. Open org.eclipse.gef.releng/build.properties and edit to suit your needs.

Required settings

The following properties must be set:

projectid=technology.foo
zipPrefix=GEF
version=0.5.0
buildType=N
mainFeatureToBuildID=org.eclipse.foo.all
testFeatureToBuildID=org.eclipse.foo.test
# if project is incubating, insert "-incubation" string into all generated zip file names
incubation=-incubation
# if not incubating, set null string
#incubation=
# set path and version of JVM to use; for 1.4, use JAVA14_HOME, for 6.0, use JAVA60_HOME
JAVA_HOME=/opt/public/common/ibm-java2-ppc-50
JAVA50_HOME=/opt/public/common/ibm-java2-ppc-50
dependencyURLs=http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/S-3.5M6-200903130100/eclipse-SDK-3.5M6-linux-gtk-ppc.tar.gz,http://path/to/other/required.zip
#what steps should we do? default: build.steps=buildUpdate,buildZips,buildTests,generateDigests,test,publish,cleanup
build.steps=buildUpdate,buildTests,generateDigests,test,publish,cleanup

If you require SVN or do not have the test framework plugins in your map file, you will need this property too, or to perform the equivalent set up manually.

# To permit automatic downloads of non-EPL compatible code, set this to property to "I accept"
#thirdPartyDownloadLicenseAcceptance="I accept"

Optional settings

You can also set other PDE variables and compiler settings in your releng project's build.properties:

compilerArg=-enableJavadoc -encoding ISO-8859-1
flattenDependencies=true
parallelCompilation=true
generateFeatureVersionSuffix=true

Run a build

5. Select org.eclipse.gef.releng/build.xml, then Run As > Ant Build.

6. A log of the build will appear as org.eclipse.gef.releng/buildlog.latest.txt.
