Eclipse-build aims to ease the building of the Eclipse SDK for Linux distributions.

Prerequisites for building with eclipse-build

  • ANT version 1.7.1 or newer

HOW-TO build Eclipse SDK with eclipse-build released tarballs

If the build finishes without error there will be a build/eclipse-$YOUR_BUILD_ID-fetched-src/installation directory containing a ready to use Eclipse SDK.

Eclipse-build is verified to work on x86, x86_64 and ppc architectures. Additionally, a ppc64 build is provided in Fedora with additional patches which are not migrated to eclipse-build yet. Eclipse-build has been successfully tested on Fedora 11 and Debian unstable.


HOW-TO build Eclipse SDK from checked out eclipse-build trunk (useful for development)

Incomplete list:

  • openjdk-6-jdk
  • ant
  • ant-optional

To-do list

Planned items

  • Add ant install target similar to 'make install' procedure
  • Provision every feature separately so we can move them in dropins
  • Add ability to build only given feature e.g org.eclipse.swt (Maybe)
