Missing executable from headless build [message #631900] Sun, 10 October 2010 08:24 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm experimenting with the headless build of an RCP product and I'm a
bit lost on an issue with the executable generation. The export uses a
custom allElements.xml to set the top level feature and archive names,
with that customization pde doesn't generate the executable, while if I
remove the allElements.xml file and let pde do its defaults, then the
executable is created and packaged correctly.

I found that the issue seems related to a missing delta pack, however
delta pack is present (the product exports to multiple platforms, so I
am sure that it is present).

From the build output I see these lines:

[java] customAssembly:
[java] [eclipse.brand] Warning: Could not find executable to brand.

It seems a bug to me, or I'm missing something ?

Regards,
Marco.

Seems that the features need to include org.eclipse.equinox.executable
plugin for the executable to be generated. Can someone confirm that this
is the expected behaviour ?

Marco.

Hello Marco,
I ran into the exact same problem.
In two year time, did you found a solution to it ?

Regards,


Charles

I don't think, none of my product build scripts are using the custom
allElements.xml script and the headless build works fine. I don't even
remember what I was trying to do at that time.

Maybe if you write what you are trying to do I (or someone else) may
suggest a solution.

It took me a while to realize that you were answering to one of my
posts, please quote some bits of the original message the next time.

Regards,
Marco.

Thank you for your quick answer.
I have the same output when I'm building my RCP application:
Quote:

From the build output I see these lines:
[java] customAssembly:
[java] [eclipse.brand] Warning: Could not find executable to brand.

And I though that it was the root cause of my problem but it turned out that it was not.
Sorry about that. Very Happy
I guess that this warning is not worth the concern.

Regards,

Charles Bonneau
