I am wondering how to find the exact command used by Eclipse to build my java project. It is set on the build automatically setting and this works fine so I do not want to change it but (for integration into jenkins, the CI server) I want to find out the build command used instead of reverse-engineering it because I foresee much time wasted in that endeavour. Is there any way to do this without just constructing one from my parameters? Thanks.

Sorry, but it's not that simple. I'm assuming you're not using Maven for your project definition, or you probably wouldn't be asking this question. Most straightforward applications are a breeze to build with Maven, and the integration with Eclipse makes it even easier to manage. If you're forced to use Ant, you've got a struggle to get through.

Right click on the Project and select Export and then select Ant Buildfiles. This will generate an ant build file. You could use this ant build file to build the project outside Eclipse.

You are right, it was silly of me to think that it would be that straightforward. I'll check out Ant, it sounds perfect for the extendable and extensible server/dev setup I'm looking for.

Great, I'm using Ant, I added the generated build.xml to the git repository and linked to it in jenkins, then told it to build the target of the project name. apart from errors of not finding java3d on the ubuntu server, it works fine. thanks everyone.
