My employer has bought a C/C++ application codebase from a contractor which does not use Eclipse as part of its development picture. Basically a big /src tree organized for building with Autotools, with a few top-level build scripts masking some of the Autotools complexity for ignorant bystanders.|
Developers for the project team I'm on have been using Eclipse as our main IDE for 3-4 years now.
TL;DR only for editing the Java code which was part of the old application we're now moving away from (a mix of Java/JNI wrapping some very old C/C++ code, built and installed using lots of proprietary UNIX script).
So: none of us are sophisticated Eclipse users, but we do want to pull our new C/C+ code into Eclipse and use more of its ability to support building and debugging. We've had some success setting up the code within Eclipse as an Autotools project...but what is currently causing grief, is that the project is also moving to Jazz / RTC (Formal) for CM. None of us understand how the code can/should/must be organized within the RTC repository, or within our local workspaces (Eclipse workspace, or Jazz workspace/repository/sandbox), so that when we look to pull multiple copies of it into our development boxes to support our usual average of 2-3 different work items each (a) we can get it downloaded within Eclipse in a usable form (properly configured project) (b) we can get our change sets delivered back, without having to adopt all sorts of highly error-prone workarounds to avoid delivering project-specific settings that aren't part of the codebase as conceived by CM right now. Right now, that's code being held as close as possible to the contractor's delivered (non-Eclipse) package.
We do gather that Jazz/RTC is meant to work with Eclipse.
My question is, can anyone recommend a good reference for figuring out how to get this working with a minimum of Eclipse-project pain?
