Using target definition in headless pde build? [message #1771366] Thu, 24 August 2017 11:45 Go to next message

Hi!

We are using a target definition file while developing in our ide which is a nice flexible way to handle the target platform. On the other hand we also have a nightly build (via headless pde and jenkins) and there we have to make sure that everything is copied in a temporary folder manually. This manual copy step is a error source which we want to eliminate.

So I was wondering if it is possible to also use the .target file in the pde build directly? If not, is there a convinient way (build step) where all entries of a .target file get copied/merged into one folder?

I found an ant-task: pde.provisionTargetDefinition in the org.eclipse.pde.core but don't know how to use or integrate it in our build.

Btw. unfortunately moving to tycho is not an option.

Hope someone can give some direction or hint how to handle this. I think that this is a common problem and just wanted to ask if there is a common solution before i write my own .target parser :)

Thanks in advance and
best regards Jürgen Weinberger

For anyone looking for a solution for this: since 3.8 there is a pde Task to create a Directory Based tp. The *.target File itself sadly cannot be used directly
