Eclipse/FAQ/How do I implement an Eclipse builder?
To understand how Eclipse builds projects, you need to
- Understand where Eclipse stores its project build specifications (See FAQ Where are project build specifications stored?)
- Be able to add a builder to a given project (See FAQ How do I add a builder to a given project?)
- Implement the builder (See FAQ How do I implement an incremental project builder?)
- Make your compiler incremental (SeeFAQ How do I make my compiler incremental?)
If you follow these instructions, but your builder does not seem to be called, consult FAQ How do I handle setup problems for a given builder?
Incremental project builders (See Platform Plug-in Developer's Guide)
