Where can i checkout the complete source of eclipse kepler ?
I want to develop something and i will test it on kepler.

or can i find the complete project anywhere?

You would really need to know for which project you want the source code to, since Kepler is made up of many projects. All of our source code is on git.eclipse.org.

Thanks for your answer.
But it is not the truth.
I found the solution on this page

http://www.vogella.com/articles/Eclipse4Source/article.html

and here you find the complete source and you could checkout it out with

git clone -b master --recursive git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/platform/eclipse.platform.releng.aggregator.git

Now I got many new problems with building the project in eclipse
and starting it to debug the source. I want to know how it works to implement
a new feature.

There is a lot of effort that you will need to learn all of the steps to compile Eclipse from sources, etc..

But just for beginners, I have not found a way to actually build eclipse, from within Eclipse.

What I have been doing is as was stated previously, you can use git to clone a repository, and build the project from there with Maven.

Keep in mind though, that you will want to make sure you are working on the correct branch of the git repository, to actually build the 'Kepler' version.

It is found as a R4_3 release.

I have successfully built and used Luna and Kepler from the sources built with Maven.

I still have not seen an Eclipse project, that can be viewed/Edited in Eclipse, that is what I really wanted as well, but have not as yet.

I believe the best you can do is to build and edit individual plugins within Eclipse.. One I used was 'InstaSearch'

I hope this helps and if you have any other info please share with me?

Thanks for that, but, I know how to compile projects in Eclipse, the problem I have is I cannot find a package, project, etc.. that contains everything I need to compile an eclipse build from within Eclipse.

I have built Eclipse with Maven external to Eclipse, but have not been able to build it from within Eclipse.

The main thing I'm looking for also, even now, is a repository that contains the exact build for 'Eclipse Java EE for Web Developers SR1'.

I have found the R4_3_maintenance and the R4_3_1 Builds with subset build ids such as
20130919 etc..

I cannot understand how to use repositories such as this http://git.eclipse.org/c/epp/org.eclipse.epp.packages.git/log/?h=KEPLER

I find repositories/branches but what i really want is a branch that will give me the exact build for the current download - 'Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers' which also describes this 'Tools for Java developers creating Java EE and Web applications, including a Java IDE, tools for Java EE, JPA, JSF, Mylyn...'

If I could find this, I would be satisfied, even if I could not build from within Eclipse. Although, if I could also build from within Eclipse, that would be sweet as well! Razz

Any help you could provide in this would be sorely appreciated...

Thanks,

Carl

Hi,

Getting the right things into the workspace / target platform and setting the correct preferences is typically very hard
for every project. That's why I have developed a standalone setup tool to do all the needed work automatically. It's
currently able to provision a workspace for the Luna version of the Platform (or for a couple other projects). Maybe you
would like to give it a try. If it works well for you we could refactor the configuration such that the Kepler branch of
the Platform is also included.

Please note that it will take quite a while to install the Platform workspace because it involves 27 Git repos and 3
different JREs (hard to imagine how one could do that at all without documentation or automation).

Someone has started a wiki for the first steps: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Setup-Eclipse (feel free to edit it!)

Happy installation ;-)

Cheers
/Eike

Hi Eike,

Thanks for that. I appreciatte what you have done!

Do you have the source for the Setup.exe you provide in the zip?

If I saw that I could see how you are building everything....

As far as repos, etc. I have no trouble using them with Maven or Git.
The logical order of building various pieces, is what I am missing.

i.e. Which repos to build first? Are there any POM files that need to be moved or created in order to build the Kepler SR1 Release?

All I really want to do, is build the current release from sources, preferably within Eclipse, but possibly with Maven, Ant and/or Git...

Thanks again.

Carl Very Happy

You can use setup-eclipse.exe to install an IDE plus workspace for "CDO Release Engineering". In there you find
everything, especially the Platform.setup model:
http://git.eclipse.org/c/cdo/cdo.git/tree/plugins/org.eclipse.emf.cdo.releng.setup/setups/Platform.setup
