Hi all,
when I add a *.jar file (e.g. patch.jar) to my bundle-classpath using
the runtime tab in the manifest editor, PDE automatically creates a
property called "source.patch.jar" in the build.properties file.
Unfortunately this property is not documented in the build.properties
template.

Can somebody explain the meaning of this property?

Thanks in advance.

Regards Holger

The build.properties file controls the building of your project during
export and headless releng builds and PDE generally tries to keep in in
synch with your project settings.

The property here is form "source.<library>" where <library> in your case is
patch.jar. This property lists the source folders that should be compiled
to create the "patch.jar".

There is an overview of most of these properties here:

Hi Andrew,
thanks for this very quick repsonse. Your explanation makes sense to me
and now I know why I didn't found source.patch.jar using google or this
newsgroup. Thanks again.

Regards Holger
