This page contains information and documents produced during the "What is In a Build" Symposium at Eclipse Summit Europe 2010.


Tycho Breakout Session

Some Tycho pain points, in no particular order:

  • How to Release - use tycho versions plugin (with care) ?
  • Product / Application Builds - Pascal says YES (from .product file using eclipse-application mojo)
   eclipse-application-new-something (still in progress; may be released as new mojo or replace eclipse-application)
  • Source feature/bundles - Pascal says NO, not working. Rumours abound - supposed working for egit source plugins (but can't yet generate source features)
  • pom to manifest synchronization - use tycho versions plugin? Will this need to synch ever go away (that is, pom.xml need not include a <version>
  • documentation is lacking or out of date
  • p2 artifacts in a m2 repo -- not yet doable [b3 aggregator can do a hybrid p2-m2 repo], though SAP has a hackaround to allow this in Nexus
  • no support for remote zipped repos (p2 problem) - again, SAP/Nexus hackaround
  • p2 sucks for network support / proxies / mirrors, so Tycho builds can fail w/o ability to be restarted (like Maven), and sometimes require ~/.m2 cache to be purged to clean out zero-length files pulled from bad mirrors
