IMP non-java bits and build process [message #576139] Mon, 20 July 2009 05:54

Background: Now that eclipse is available again for Solaris x86 I'm
interested in getting IMP working on this OS (specifically OpenSolaris).
Not only to use IMP on this platform but also because because some other
Eclipse projects (e.g. QVT declarative) are depending on IMP. If more
projects depend on IMP in future then Solaris and other less
well-supported platforms will miss out on them.

My questions are:

- Is there a summary of the build process for the whole IMP project
available somewhere? Java and native code bits?
- Which parts remain non-100% pure-java (e.g. LPG) and where can I find
details of their build process/requirements? How are they integrated into
eclipse plugins?
- Any opinions on the difficulty of porting the native code components to
another unix OS? Pretty much a routine process of configure make install
etc? Any unusual build requirements?
- If I could build the binary bits for Solaris X86 what other changes
would be needed in the plugins to allow it to be recognised as one of the
valid platforms for IMP?


Thanks!
