This page is intended to give existing projects a jumpstart for setting up a Tycho build.

While each project is different, there are some common steps:

Contents

Scaffolding: generate pom.xml files

Maven needs pom.xml files to drive the build. See Generating POM files on how to generate an initial skeleton for these files.

Manual adjustments

In the generated top-level (parent) pom.xml, it's a good idea to globally define the tycho version to use

<properties>
  <tycho-version>0.18.0</tycho-version>
</properties>

so you can reference it using ${tycho-version} anywhere in the child pom.xml files e.g. when configuring tycho plugins. See maven project inheritance.

In case you have deeply nested projects and used several generate-poms invocations, add a top-level parent pom.xml and reference it as parent from the intermediate parent poms. Also, adjust the modules to be built (see maven project aggregation).

Adding p2 repositories to resolve external dependencies

Getting tests to run
