Coding Conventions

ECF has decided to use the Equinox Coding Conventions. Also on this page are links to java source code formatter to use in Eclipse to easily enforce these conventions.


ECF has nightly and continuous builds with automated integration testing. We use Jenkins and Buckminster and is hosted at the Oregon State University Open Source Lab. See here.

Both Maven and p2 repositories are available from nightly builds here.
