Howdy,

Is there documentation on how to configure buckminster to build from an
Eclipse product file? If there is documentation, pointers would be most
appreciated.

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.
