Prevent archiving rcp application in headless build [message #603969] Tue, 05 January 2010 19:37 Go to next message

1) Is is possible to prevent the default headless build of PDE
(org.eclipse.pde.build_...\scripts\productBuild\productBuild .xml) of creating an archive
file at the end of the build process of my rcp application. Is there a property for that?
Or should I override the default assemble process?

What I would like to do instead, is to copy all files that the archive must contain to a
temporary directory. Our application already provide an installation software that will
grab these files and make the installer...

2) How could I customize part of my build process without changing the default PDE build

Note that I'm using PDE to make an headless build of my RCP application as in the following:

java -jar c:\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_XXX.jar -application
org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -buildfile productBuild.xml -D... -D...

Thanks all,

Hi Vincent , Danny
There is definetely a way for that i believe.
You can try overwriting ant calls in customTargets.xml , allElements.xml , productBuild.xml and such files
These files are present in the 'eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.pde.build_3.6.0.v20100603\templates\headless-build' directory in eclipse
Hope that helps.
