It is my understanding that when building the Eclipse SDK, Eclipse's internal compiler ecj is used to compile much of the codebase.|
I have followed the instructions here to successfully build the Eclipse SDK: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Linux_Tools_Project/Eclipse_Build
but now I want to perform an experiment and build using the OpenJDK6 javac compiler instead.
As a simple experiment, I modified the following key in build.properties
but that causes the build to fail.
Does Eclipse even compile with javac? Is there a simple change to the build I can make so that it uses javac instead? And if not, how much work would it be to make it work?
