Hi all,

I'm trying to utilize the build system embedded in android(aka. output an ADT-integrated eclipse). But met some errors (see attachment 'workspace.metadata.log' ):

1. Are these the root cause: "Missing required capability Require-Capability:; filter="(|(&("" ??

2. I notice three places provide similar .jar(s):
a) eclipse.platform.releng.basebuilder
b) The deltapack
c) The org.eclipse.platform tarball - part of SDK source

Are they involved in different building stages? (How?) For my problem, only a) is related?

Following is the snippet of build.xml (used by the Makefile as "java -jar /path/to/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_xxx.jar ")
<target name="product-build" depends="feature-build">
<java classname="org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main" fork="true" failonerror="true">
<arg value="-application" />
<arg value="org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner" />
<arg value="-buildfile" />
<arg value="${}/scripts/productBuild/productBuild.xml" />
<arg value="-data" />
<arg value="${productBuildDir}/workspace" />
<arg value="-configuration" />
<arg value="${productBuildDir}/configuration" />
<arg value="-Dtimestamp=${timestamp}" />
<arg value="-DeclipseLocation=${baseBuilder}" />
<arg value="-DbuildDirectory=${productBuildDir}" />
<arg value="-DbaseLocation=${targetDir}/deltapack/eclipse" />
<arg value="-DrepoBaseLocation=${targetDir}/repos/" />
<arg value="-DtransformedRepoLocation=${targetDir}/transformedRepos/" />
<arg value="-Dconfigs=${buildconfigs}" />
<arg value="-DforceContextQualifier=${QUALIFIER}" />
<pathelement location="${equinox.launcher}" />

Any idea?

This log file is for an ancient version of Eclipse being run with an already end-of-lifed version of Java.

What build system are you talking about? Which similar jars are you talking about?
