This page documents how to set up a Mac OS X box for use in EclipseCon 2009's Hands-On: Using the new Common Builder for Push-Button PDE Builds tutorial.


Run a build in Eclipse

  • download and unpack Eclipse 3.4.2, then double-click the application icon.
  • choose a workspace without spaces or a lengthy path, such as ~/Documents/workspace
  • import the psf into Eclipse using File > Import > Team > Project Set File. You should end up with three workspace projects, org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder, org.eclipse.dash.common.releng, and org.eclipse.gef.releng.
  • download ant-contrib.jar into ~/Documents/workspace/org.eclipse.dash.common.releng/lib/
  • open gef.releng, configure build.properties to correct java and Eclipse platform settings. For example
dependencyURLs=http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/S-3.5M5-200902021535/eclipse-SDK-3.5M5-win32.tar.gz 

JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home
JAVA14_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home
JAVADOC14_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home/bin
  • select build.xml, right-click and Run as > Ant Build
Run-CBI-on-MacOSX10.5.png
  • to kill a stuck process or bad build in progress, open a terminal (Finder > Go > Applications > Utilities > Terminal) and run
pkill -f N200903
