eclipse.jdt.core compilation on Ubuntu command line [message #1784984] Fri, 06 April 2018 15:34 Go to next message

How can I compile the eclipse.jdt.core code on Ubuntu 16.04 command line?

At path "~/Documents", I downloaded all the codes by the command "git clone".

Then I installed maven and compile the eclipse.jdt.core project by running "mvn compile" on command line. It gives the bug like picture 1 (see attachment).

Then I noticed the line 15, column 11 of the pom.xml file in picture 2 (see attachment).

I think the other reason for this bug is that the "eclipse-platform-parent" folder is missing, so I searched for "eclipse-platform-parent" in Google, in Github, and in the Eclipse's project list. I don't see any related source for "eclipse-platform-parent".

I appreciate your kind assistance!

Please have a look at

Two things to pay attention to:
- toolchains need to be configured
- the profiles build-individual-bundles and bree-libs are required

Seeing the wiki still mention Java 8 as the latest could mean the information is slightly outdated, so please let us know if it doesn't work even with those hints.
