<currently in eclipse 3.8>

I've been beating my head against buckminster for a while now, despite reading a good chunk of the documentation book thingy and doing extensive googling. I think I vaguely understand what's going on, but can't get anything to work.

The question: is there, somewhere, an example of the rmap and cquery files for the simplest possible RCP application? Like, say, the one that generates when you select "Hello RCP application" or "RCP application with a view" off the wizard? The closest I can find is the mail application, which is still a bit much for me ATM.

Thanks.

(ps: if a simple google search turns it up, please convey your search terms. I'm trying to get better at the art of google.)

It did indeed help! I've now got my ridiculously simple plugin to resolve and materialize!

The hitch comes in here: I have no interest in building a (or from) a p2 repository. Can I get buckminster to build my plugin by ignoring certain parts of your tutorial? (If I can, which section[s] should I skip?)

...or have I completely misinterpreted things, and a p2 repository is a necessity instead of a feature?

Thanks.

Hi

by "just build" what do you mean? Just compile Java files without
producing any artifacts (i.e., no jar)? Then you just need the "build"
command, and ignore the other commands like "site.p2".

cheers
Lorenzo
