I am still having trouble to get the markers from my parsed C source code (stored in an external file). In fact, I would like to retrieve all the error messages generated by the CDT compiler (generate and retrieve the same number of messages as it does when compiling a project in Eclipse) in a standalone Java application. To do so, I need to bypass the Eclipse workspace and all the IResource classes (or interfaces) which would enable me to capture everything I want in a traditional Eclipse project. Moreover, I may need to set up manually within my Java application the context of my external C file in order to be able to generate the same number of notifications as in Eclipse. I am only striving to replicate what I succeeded to do with the JDT.
