Hi everyone!, I have the following environment:
Jenkins
Buckminster 3.7
Eclipse 3.7

I use Jenkins for building RCP applications, all this configuration works correctly. Now I migrate from Eclipse Indigo 3.7 to Eclipse Oxygen 4.7 using the Compatibility Layer and I do not find any updates from Buckminster to Eclipse Oxygen. Could you give me a hint as to what would be the best tool nowadays for building RCP applications in Jenkins, I find out that Tycho is a good option.

Thanks in advance!.

Mariano

Most projects building Eclipse applications are using Maven/Tycho: https://wiki.eclipse.org/CBI

I've been down this road you are on. Trust me... you will end up with something incredibly more complicated with Ant than you would if you just use Tycho/Maven. You said you want it simple as possible, and IMHO, Tycho is it.

There are examples here... http://wiki.eclipse.org/Tycho/Packaging_Types

I also suggest to check out tycho from git and look around the tycho-demo location. They have great examples there too.

http://git.eclipse.org/c/tycho/org.eclipse.tycho.git/tree/tycho-demo/itp04-rcp

Plus, Jenkins is super easy when dealing with Maven builds.

The current version of Tycho is 0.13.0. It's pretty early in it's life, and under active development, so it's getting better every day.
