Since some years we are using the pde-maven-plugin
from org.codehaus.mojo successfully to perform our
feature-based PDE headless masterbuilds. We observed
that from Eclipse 3.3.2 on, we could no longer use higher
versions of Eclipse as the actual builder SDK, but that
wasn't so much of a problem for us, because until
now, the Java compiler of this version worked fine
for us (knock on wood).

Problem is, that this maven plugin seems no longer
being under active development which increases the
chances, that we might run into trouble at one day.
Even now we cannot use a maven version > 2.0.8, because
that breaks the org.codehaus.mojo plugin.

I would be interessted, whether anyone could recommend
a more recent pde build plugin for maven. This plugin
should support a headless feature-based PDE build,
and thus must be able to run without an Eclipse IDE
and must at least support an Eclipse target platform
of 3.5.2 and run with at least maven version 2.0.8.

Thanks for any ideas & Greetings from Bremen,

Daniel Krügler

I've been hearing things about using maven2 with p2 for building and new
a project of maven3 with Tycho:

I've never used tycho, but AFAIK it is under active development.
