i have a large project. I just automated the Buildprocess with Ant, because I wanted to integrate my project in a Continuous Integration Server (Jenkins). Now I wanted to integrate the Deployment. I thought I can do everything in Ant. But I have to "create" my RCP Project first. In Eclipse I can export it without Problems. But for the Continuous Integration Server I need it outside of Eclipse.

Ant now compiles my Project. Now I think I need Buckminster for creating my Project (exe and so on). I found very much in google, but I didnt get the Idea of Buckminster. I have no idea how to realise it now. Here is my first Attempt.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

	<searchPath name="resources">
		<provider readerType="local" componentTypes="osgi.bundle,eclipse.feature" mutable="true" source="true">
			<uri format="file:///{0}/{1}/">
				<bc:propertyRef key="workspace.root" />
				<bc:propertyRef key="buckminster.component" />
	<locator searchPathRef="resources"/>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<cq:componentQuery xmlns:cq="" resourceMap="file:/D:/Workspace/Projectname/de.tdb.product/site.rmap">
    <cq:rootRequest name="de.tdb.product.product" componentType="eclipse.feature" versionDesignator="[3.5.8,3.5.8]"/>

The Project contains 14 "sub"-projects and the Product Configuration is based on features. In the Product-Project are files like, p2_development, config.ini, and so on...
Can I use this files? In google everybody only writes about cquery, rmap, cspex and so on and I really have now Idea how to realise it.
In Jenkins I use the Buckminster Plugin.

I would be grateful for some help! Razz

Ok, now Iam a little wider.

I followed this tutorial ( to create my RCP Project.

But the automated build already exists in Ant. The results of the Build are about 15 Jars. Can I give Buckminster the Jars to creaty my Product (exe...)?
