Export Product wizard from command line? [message #728518] Fri, 23 September 2011 12:08

I'm trying to work out what the "proper" way of buiding my eclipse based product from the command line is, so that I can integrate it properly with our build system.

I've got a "product configuration" file set up and if I use the "Eclipse Product export wizard" from within Eclipse it generates me a directory from which I can run my product as I want to. It even creates a launch executable with the right name and icon. Cool.

So I think my question is how do I then run that from Ant, so that I can run it from a build system? (Hudson, luntbuild, whatever)?

It is possible that that's the wrong question, and that my question is less specific, "what's the 'proper' way to build my eclipse based product from the command line". I am assuming that the "product configuration" export wizard is my starting point just because it allows you to specify all the things that you need, splash screens, icons etc.

I can see that the export wizard seems to do its work ultimately by invoking an Ant script, but there doesn't seem to be any facility to save that Ant script so that I can use it manually.

I'm using Eclipse 3.7 and am currently considering Windows, though Linux and Mac will also be required.

Any help on this rather confusing area would be appreciated, pointers to documentation on the approved method etc.

Thanks.
