Is it possible to programmatically trigger a Clean build during the start of an XText project, when i open the project in Eclipse. However i don't want to trigger the same during save of every file.

Thanks Christian for your quick reply.
Yes when we close and open the project eclipse automatically calls a rebuild.
However , when i open the eclipse with a already opened XText project , then eclipse skips the clean build step. So I just wanted to know whether we can some how call clean build from within our Xtext project programmatically in this case.

Sonia,

could you please elaborate why do you need to clean and rebuild the opened projects after application startup?

By the way, if you just want to perform an arbitrary action at startup time/workbench creation, you could look into the org.eclipse.ui.startup extension point, or if you have your own org.eclipse.equinox.app.IApplication implementation, maybe you could also check the org.eclipse.ui.application.WorkbenchWindowAdvisor#postWindowOpen() method.

If you would like to programmatically trigger a build, you could use something like this:
ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot().getProject("yourProjectName").build(IncrementalProjectBuilder.FULL_BUILD, new NullProgressMonitor());
