Developer's guide to integrating a build of AspectJ into AJDT

In order to integrate a build of AspectJ into AJDT you must build a version of AspectJ, pull it into AJDT and finally make the relevant updates to the build version string maintained within AJDT's org.aspectj.ajde project.

To build AspectJ and pull it into AJDT follow the instructions here:

http://www.eclipse.org/aspectj/doc/released/faq.php#q:buildingAspectJAndAJDT

To update the build version string:

1. Open org.aspectj.bridge.Version within your AspectJ workspace that you used to build AspectJ

2. Translate the value of public static final String time_text into YYYYMMDDHHMM, so for example, "Monday Jan 15, 2007 at 13:24:11 GMT" is translated to 200701151324.

3. Update "ajde.version" within the build.properties file in AJDT's UpdateSite project. Unless the AspectJ version has changed (for example, from 1.5.3 to 1.5.4) just update the date string. Using the above example, if the version inside build.properties was 1.5.4.200612051543 then it would need to be updated to be 1.5.4.200701151324.
