Sample Releng Project

This document describes the recipe ingredients you need to assemble to run your build in a similar manner to the platform builds. The assumption is that that you have already created plugins and features that you would like to contribute to the build.

Draft - Last updated March 16, 2006. This document is a work in progress, we just moved to a new grouped builds process the week of March 17, 2006


  1. CVS, Zip and tar executables.
  2. A Linux build machine.
  3. JUnit or Performance Test machines.
  4. JDKs to compile against and run the build.
  5. A runtime and/or sdk feature
  6. A test feature
  7. A map file project
  8. A builder project that includes files to feed PDE Build: build.properties and customTargets.xml, packaging scripts if required
  9. Build bootstrap script
  10. A master ant script to control the build from start to finish
  11. The org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder project from dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/eclipse
  12. Publishing scripts
  13. Infrastructure to distribute your build.

Create a map file project

For example,


Create your builder project

Define build.properties and customTargets.xml to feed PDE Build.

Create your build bootstrap script

Example: Platform-releng-sample-bootstrap

Actual platform bootstrap script is here http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/*checkout*/org.eclipse.releng.eclipsebuilder/Attic/bootstrap.sh?rev=

Create a master ant script that controls build from start to finish

The platform master script is here...


Check out org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/eclipse co org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder

We recommend that you use the latest stable tag. Look here latest stable tag of org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder for the latest stable tag.

Modify existing publishing scripts or create your own :-)
