wizard that allows the user to export a target definition to a certain
Would it be possible to reuse that headlessly in Buckminster?
That would go great with the Hudson integration.
The plugin already implements a 'Target Platform Publisher' that lets
you archive a directory that contains plugins and features.
The user names this Target Platform and is then able to reuse it
declarative in other build jobs.
Currently people already use target definition files to create a TP for
other build jobs (simply more convinient than mspecs), but so far it's
only possible with a hack:
1. Invoke buckminster with importtargetdefinition -A some.target
2. archive .metadata/org.eclipse.pde.core/.bundle-pool
This isn't exactly clean since it's fishing internal stuff from the
So with this new export wizard available the hudson plugin could offer
much better support for the user. To create a target platform for other
build jobs, simply point to a *.target file and name the output. The
rest can be done automatically.
So, does anybody know if this functionality could be used in a headless
environment and integrated into buckminster?
