Many non-platform build teams rely of the plugins in org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder to run their builds. This page will serve to notify build teams of recent changes to basebuilder so they may incorporate changes as appropriate.

By using the HEAD version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder, there may be unexpected changes at times. Building from HEAD is advised for people who like to have lots of broken builds :-). A version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder is tagged after every milestone before we upgrade to the lastest milestone plugins. For instance, version M2_32 of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder reflects the version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder that was used to build 3.2 M2.

== General Information ==
  
You can find org.eclipse.relengbasebuilder in /cvsroot/eclipse
+
The "basebuilder" (org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder) is a special subset of the Eclipse SDK. It has some things removed to be smaller, and a few things added so it can be ran (in headless "batch mode") on multiple platforms. A tagged version is approximately 60 Megabytes.
  
==== Current build tag for 3.6 stream builds (Helios) ====
+
It has been kept in a Version Control System (VCS) to make sure builds are reproducible. From the beginning of time, 2002, to 2012 it was kept in CVS.
  
'''R36_M7'''
+
In December, 2012, it was migrated to Git ({{bug|395777}}). '''Caution:''' cloning the whole repo is not advised. It is 1.5 Gigabytes of mostly binary data and can take 45 minutes on a good broadband connection, and even 10 minutes on build.eclipse.org.
  
-can be used for generating source references in the manifests of your bundles. For more information, see
+
By the Kepler release, it is planned to no longer use the basebuilder from VCSs but instead rely on retention of Platform builds and p2 repositories. (See {{bug|324682}}.)
[http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/cross-project-issues-dev/msg04001.html the information on the cross project list]
+
 
 +
But, before that transition, we (in the active Platform builds) will use the Git version with a few modifications. So, information about using it is provided here, but its not anticipated anyone would '''have''' to move to the Git version ... and hopefully our method of using SDK and p2 repositories, once done, can be duplicated by others, as they need.
 +
 
 +
Location of the repository, see [http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder.git/ eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder]. But, again, '''do not clone the whole repo, especially from CGit!'''
 +
 
 +
Notice that the Git repo is not named org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder but its files are "directly under" the repo, named eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder. Hence, as part of the "checkout", you need to convert/copy to a folder named org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder -- if you want to keep the rest of the build scripts the same as they are for the CVS version.
 +
 
 +
The main steps of getting a tagged version of the basebuilder are to
 +
# Use CGit to get the version you need in a zip file, such as <code>http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder.git/snapshot/eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder-R38M6PlusRC3D.zip</code>.
 +
# Unzip that file, and copy files to a folder named  ${yourBuildRoot}/org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder.
 +
# fix the executable permissions of files that need it (since not maintained by Git).
 +
 
 +
While details and exact location may change, for an example using Ant, see the fetchBaseBuilderFromGit task we use in getBaseBuilder.xml:
 +

==== org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder update history ====
+
==== February 13, 2013, Compiler updated to Kepler M5 version ====
  
<br><span style="font-weight: bold;">May 9, 2010</span>
+
R38M6PlusRC3G created by updating master (R38M6PlusRC3F) with M5 compiler (org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.9.0.v20130129-050623.jar). {{bug|400052}}
 +
 
 +
==== December 17, 2012, Updated to Ant 1.8.4 ====
 +
 
 +
R38M6PlusRC3F created by updating R38M6PlusRC3E with Ant 1.8.4 (from the M4 SDK build) {{bug|396700}}
 +
 
 +
==== December 16, 2012, Compiler updated to Kepler M4 version ====
 +
 
 +
R38M6PlusRC3E created by updating R38M6PlusRC3D with M4 compiler (org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.9.0.v20121025-162051.jar). {{bug|396690}}
 +
 
 +
==== December, 2012, Migrated basebuilder to Git ====
 +
 
 +
Migrated basebuilder to Git ({{bug|395777}}). Used R38M6PlusRC3D from Git to produce M4 SDK.
 +
 
 +
CVS is expected to be in "read-only" mode for a while, bug R38M6PlusRC3D is the last-used tag in CVS. Note that the "old" tagged versions are also available from Git, but old build scripts would have to change to fetch the Git versions instead of the CVS version. It is planned that by Kepler release, we will no longer use basebuilder at all (but instead use SDK based Eclipse when needed, along with tools built on their own, see {{bug|324682}}), but there will be a few updates made in Git versions prior to the transition.
 +
 
 +
Below is the old introduction to this page, oriented to the CVS version, as the new intro will be oriented to the Git version:

Latest revision as of 15:43, 13 February 2013

Many non-platform build teams rely of the plugins in org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder to run their builds. This page will serve to notify build teams of recent changes to basebuilder so they may incorporate changes as appropriate.

Contents

[edit] General Information

The "basebuilder" (org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder) is a special subset of the Eclipse SDK. It has some things removed to be smaller, and a few things added so it can be ran (in headless "batch mode") on multiple platforms. A tagged version is approximately 60 Megabytes.

It has been kept in a Version Control System (VCS) to make sure builds are reproducible. From the beginning of time, 2002, to 2012 it was kept in CVS.

In December, 2012, it was migrated to Git (bug 395777). Caution: cloning the whole repo is not advised. It is 1.5 Gigabytes of mostly binary data and can take 45 minutes on a good broadband connection, and even 10 minutes on build.eclipse.org.

By the Kepler release, it is planned to no longer use the basebuilder from VCSs but instead rely on retention of Platform builds and p2 repositories. (See bug 324682.)

But, before that transition, we (in the active Platform builds) will use the Git version with a few modifications. So, information about using it is provided here, but its not anticipated anyone would have to move to the Git version ... and hopefully our method of using SDK and p2 repositories, once done, can be duplicated by others, as they need.

Location of the repository, see eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder. But, again, do not clone the whole repo, especially from CGit!

Notice that the Git repo is not named org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder but its files are "directly under" the repo, named eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder. Hence, as part of the "checkout", you need to convert/copy to a folder named org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder -- if you want to keep the rest of the build scripts the same as they are for the CVS version.

The main steps of getting a tagged version of the basebuilder are to

  1. Use CGit to get the version you need in a zip file, such as http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder.git/snapshot/eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder-R38M6PlusRC3D.zip.
  2. Unzip that file, and copy files to a folder named ${yourBuildRoot}/org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder.
  3. fix the executable permissions of files that need it (since not maintained by Git).

While details and exact location may change, for an example using Ant, see the fetchBaseBuilderFromGit task we use in getBaseBuilder.xml:

http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.eclipsebuilder.git/tree/getBaseBuilder.xml#n178

[edit] basebuilder history

[edit] February 13, 2013, Compiler updated to Kepler M5 version

R38M6PlusRC3G created by updating master (R38M6PlusRC3F) with M5 compiler (org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.9.0.v20130129-050623.jar). bug 400052

[edit] December 17, 2012, Updated to Ant 1.8.4

R38M6PlusRC3F created by updating R38M6PlusRC3E with Ant 1.8.4 (from the M4 SDK build) bug 396700

[edit] December 16, 2012, Compiler updated to Kepler M4 version

R38M6PlusRC3E created by updating R38M6PlusRC3D with M4 compiler (org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.9.0.v20121025-162051.jar). bug 396690

[edit] December, 2012, Migrated basebuilder to Git

Migrated basebuilder to Git (bug 395777). Used R38M6PlusRC3D from Git to produce M4 SDK.

CVS is expected to be in "read-only" mode for a while, bug R38M6PlusRC3D is the last-used tag in CVS. Note that the "old" tagged versions are also available from Git, but old build scripts would have to change to fetch the Git versions instead of the CVS version. It is planned that by Kepler release, we will no longer use basebuilder at all (but instead use SDK based Eclipse when needed, along with tools built on their own, see bug 324682), but there will be a few updates made in Git versions prior to the transition.

Below is the old introduction to this page, oriented to the CVS version, as the new intro will be oriented to the Git version:

By using the HEAD version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder, there may be unexpected changes at times. Building from HEAD is advised for people who like to have lots of broken builds :-). A version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder is tagged after every milestone before we upgrade to the lastest milestone plugins. For instance, version M2_32 of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder reflects the version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder that was used to build 3.2 M2.

You can find org.eclipse.relengbasebuilder in /cvsroot/eclipse

[edit] November, 2012, Compiler update

R38M6PlusRC3D created by updating R38M6PlusRC3C with M3 compiler (jdt.core 3.9.0.v20121025-162051).

[edit] August, 2012, Ant updates

R38M6PlusRC3B created by updating R38M6PlusRC3 with the normal executable scripts from Ant 1.8.2.

R38M6PlusRC3C created by updating R38M6PlusRC3B with Ant 1.8.3. This was the version used for Juno SR1 (4.2.1 and 3.8.1).

[edit] May, 2012, created version for Juno release builds.

R38M6PlusRC3 created by updating R38M6 SDK with RC3 compiler jdt.core (3.8.1.v20120531-0637). This was the version used for Juno release.

[edit] November 9, 2005

For build teams that use org.eclipse.basebuilder project in their builds, tag M3_32 of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder is now available. This tag refers to a version of basebuilder that consists of plugins from Eclipse 3.2 M3. We would strongly advise all teams not to use the HEAD version of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder in their builds as this is a development stream. We would advise all teams to either use the stable tags M2_32 (plugins from milestone 2) or M3_32 (plugins from milestone 3) of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder.

[edit] November 7, 2005 changes

HEAD stream of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder tagged as version M2_32. Subsequently, released Eclipse 3.2M3 plugins in HEAD.

We renamed org.eclipse.pde.build_3.2.0/scripts to org.eclipse.pde.build/scripts because our scripts explicitly reference the path to pde build. With the plugin versioning changes now being implemented, we didn't want to change name of pde build each time the qualifier changes. For instance, the full name of the pde.build plugin from from M3 is org.eclipse.pde.build_3.2.0.v20051031a.
