Who should read this Example?

This example is a detailed description of how to install Buckminster features in a minimal Buckminster Headless. In order to benefit from this example, you must first have looked at what the headless stuff is all about. To see all the headless related articles go.

Goal of Example

The ultimate goal for this description is to install the rest of Buckminster in a headless configuration, specifically in order to install Buckminster commands beyond the basic ones. But, to do this, a number of dependencies must be fulfilled first.

The dependencies are on other features (and their plugins). These features can be downloaded from update sites (or actually, from other 'things' that are usable as 'sites'). All dependencies shown here are fulfilled by the buckminster update site.

Using the update mechanisms

There are three commands available: listsite, install and uninstall. Actually, there is also a command (currently hidden) that may be of use during configuration: dumpinfo. This command is generally for support reasons and will dump various information including features and plugins installed.

Using listsite is very simple - just provide it with a path or URL and it will list any features it finds there. Sample:

buckminster listsite http://download.eclipse.org/technology/buckminster/updates

Note that it works just as well for the product itself:

buckminster.exe listsite C:\buckminster
Searching file:/C:/buckminster/...
|**********************************************************************|
Features:
  org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.feature_1.0.0.v20060601 (Buckminster Headless)
  org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.platform.feature_1.0.0.v20060601 (Headless Platform)
  org.eclipse.buckminster.product_1.0.0.v20060601 (Buckminster Product)

In fact, if listsite is given without arguments, it will list the local site, i.e. the product itself:

buckminster listsite
Searching local site...

Features:
  org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.feature_1.0.0.v20060601 (Buckminster Headless)
  org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.platform.feature_1.0.0.v20060601 (Headless Platform)
  org.eclipse.buckminster.product_1.0.0.v20060601 (Buckminster Product)

Commands for install/uninstall are very similar: for install, point to a site and a feature you wish to install (and an optional version of it if there are multiple, default is to take the latest). For uninstall, just give the feature name and optional version.

Installing required features

First off, we need to install the Buckminster core feature:

buckminster install http://download.eclipse.org/technology/buckminster/updates org.eclipse.buckminster.feature

Installing org.eclipse.buckminster.feature_1.0.0.v20060601...
<outputs details of downloaded and installed plugin and feature files...>
|**********************************************************************|

The Buckminster tests are stored in a CVS repository, the RMAP it uses will reference a Maven repository, and the assembly builder will use Ant so we need to endow our buckminster with providers for those:

buckminster install http://download.eclipse.org/technology/buckminster/updates org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.cvs.feature

|**********************************************************************|

At this point we have a functional setup but there are a couple of other features that deserves a mention:

  • org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.jdt.feature
    This feature will enable the Eclipse platform JDT functionality. It is needed when you work with Java projects.
  • org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.pde.feature
    This feature will enable the Eclipse platform PDE functionality. You will need it when you work with plugin and feature projects. This feature includes the org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.jdt.feature.
  • org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.svn.feature
    Provides the Subversion repository provider.
  • org.eclipse.buckminster.headless.p4.feature
    Provides the Perforce repository provider.


Let's try loading a workspace with some very simple test components:

buckminster.exe -W \temp\bar getcfg http://www.eclipse.org/buckminster/samples/queries/build_a.cquery
Using workspace at file:/C:/temp/bar/...
Running query...
