Building Eclipse Code Recommenders from sources should be pretty easy. If some of the steps below fail - let us know.

Building with Tycho

$ git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/recommenders/org.eclipse.recommenders.git
$ cd org.eclipse.recommenders
$ mvn clean install

mvn clean install automatically executes the maven builds for Eclipse 4.2 platform. If you want to build Code Recommenders for 3.7 just use

$ mvn clean install -P e3x

A list of defined maven profiles you can specify with -P:

  • e3x: Builds Code Recommender with Eclipse 3.x target platform. A consumable P2 update site is generated under dist/org.eclipse.recommenders.head.e37/target/repository/
  • e42: Builds Code Recommender with Eclipse 4.2 target platform. A consumable P2 update site is generated under dist/org.eclipse.recommenders.head.e37/target/repository/
  • server Builds Code Recommender server product. A product zip file is stored under /dist/org.eclipse.recommenders.product.server/target/
  • build-server: This profile is considered to be run on the hudson.eclipse.org only. Running it locally won't work.

Building from Eclipse Workspace

Configuring Eclipse Code Recommenders Workspace for Eclipse is slightly more complicated:

On command line do:

$ git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/recommenders/org.eclipse.recommenders.git
$ cd org.eclipse.recommenders
$ mvn clean install

This is currently required once to download the models archive for override completion.

Then,

  1. Import all projects into your Eclipse workspace.
  2. Set workspace encoding to UTF-8.
  3. Set the workspace's target platform.
    1. Go to etc/targets/
    2. Open 'e37.target' target definition with target platform editor. For developing for Eclipse 4.2 just use e42.target instead.
    3. Wait until Eclipse resolved all dependencies. Check the progress view to see when resolving finished.
    4. Now click on the 'Set as target platform' link on the upper right corner of the editor.
  4. Wait until workspace is rebuild and all compile errors went away (maybe except from a few projects)
  5. Done. Start a new Eclipse runtime and trigger code completion on some Eclipse UI classes. The screenshot below gives a feature-based runtime configuration for Eclipse 3.7. Use that as starting point for your own configuration.
