To understand how Eclipse builds projects, you need to

  • Understand where Eclipse stores its project build specifications

(SeeFAQ_Where_are_project_build_specifications_stored? </li>

  • Be able to add a builder to a given project

(SeeFAQ_How_do_I_add_a_builder_to_a_given_project? </li>


  • Implement the builder

(SeeFAQ_How_do_I_implement_an_incremental_project_builder? </li>


  • Make your compiler incremental

(SeeFAQ_How_do_I_make_my_compiler_incremental? </li>


If you follow these instructions, but your builder does not seem to be called, consultFAQ_How_do_I_handle_setup_problems_for_a_given_builder?
