Hello all,

I'm excited about the prospects of using Hudson to build my Eclipse RCP application, however I would very much appreciate some direction.

My Eclipse RCP Application has dependencies on in-house jars with version numbered file names that also need to be built whenever the code base changes (i.e. DataModel_1.2.3.jar, DataModel_1.2.4.jar, DataModel_1.2.5.jar).

Here are my major questions:


  • How should I update my Eclipse Plug-in Manifest file dependencies to refer to newly built, in-house jar files with file names that contain incremental version numbering?
  • How do you recommend I build the headless Eclipse RCP application?
  • I'm unsure if I should compliment Hudson with other technologies to achieve my requirements (i.e. Ivy), or if I am expected to write custom Hudson plug-ins or if my problems have already been solved by Hudson?


I'd love some direction because my project team really need to hit the ground running and we'd love to know if Hudson can be used.

Thanks

Ali.

There seems to be some useful information about building RCP with Hudson in the Eclipse Wiki.
Check out: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Building_an_RCP_application_with_hudson_%28Buckminster%29
That's probably a great place to start.

Could I achieve my goals by developing some custom Hudson plug-ins?

Hi Ali,

Yes, you could do that - and there's a plugin tutorial available on the wiki - but you might want to look at Tycho which lets you build Eclipse/RCP projects using Maven. There are several Eclipse projects already using Tycho for headless builds, and you can then use the new Maven 3 integration in Hudson (ie. the Maven 3 build step in the Freestyle job) to detect when the code/snapshots change and trigger new builds.

HTH
