This is covered in the Buckminster Book (download the PDF from |
buckminster's download page).
Don't know how much you know already, so I am starting from the beginning...
Basically, buckminster understands .product files and adds actions to
the CSPEC it generates for a feature without any authoring. (You can see
this in the UI if you have Buckminster installed - simply look at the
Buckminster actions available for a feature with .product files in it).
There is a bit more setup around this - you probably want to define a
target platform - assemble it automatically, and then build your product
against this target platform. At the end you probably want a ready to
run zip file. Some authoring is required to add the actions to produce
the final zip file. This is covered in the demo/tutorial we gave at ESE
- there is a sample available - and basically you could copy/paste the
solution and only modify the specifics.
If you are happy with the built product being generated to a p2
repository it is even easier. This is shown as a step in the
demo/sample. (Basically, a feature is created that represents the
content you want to have in a p2 site, some build properties are set (if
you are not happy with the defaults), and you invoke the automatically
generated site.p2 action to produce the site.
I hope that helps.
