Dear, All,

I am curious about how eclipse is tested and built periodically? The
reason I ask is because we have a RCP program and wish to do it similarly.

What is the testing tool? What is the build system? What is the continuous
integration system?

Can someone please point me to some resources or articles about it? Thanks
so much!

Have a nice day!

Best Regards,
Frank Du

The Eclipse platform SDK is built and tested nightly, as well as once a
week there is an integration build. There is no continuous integration,
it is just scheduled with cron jobs.

It is built using a combination of PDE/Build, p2 and ant scripts. Tests
are junits and are run using ant scripts the releng team wrote.

There is some information on the wiki:
