I'm trying to build eclipse from scratch. I could download eclipse e4 from CVS, which has 426 projects.
CVS is outdated. Eclipse projects now live in git at http://git.eclipse.org/c/
After the automatic build, I got tens of broken project build.
You mean when building inside the IDE? Or are you building from the command line?
I tried to fix some of them, but most of them are still broken including swt and jface.
SWT sure is among the trickier projects, since it needs fragments with native code for each platfrom.
Googling about eclipse architecture, I found that Wikipedia points out that
`With the exception of a small run-time kernel, everything in Eclipse is a plug-in.`
What projects in CVS are the run-time kernel? How many projects do I need to build `successfully` to get vanilla eclipse that is not a plugin but core eclipse? I mean what is the project that after the build I can execute `eclipse.exe` even though it has no plugin?
For the bare minimum have a look at http://www.eclipse.org/equinox/documents/quickstart-framework.php
Note, that eclipse.exe is just a launcher, which is not necessarily needed.
Also note, that the Equinox bundle is not "Eclipse" its just an OSGi runtime, but it seems you are looking for that, exactly.
