I want to compile my own version of EGit / JGit.

I used this page to setup my development environment:

1. Went through "Automated Developer Setup" steps
Where you choose "Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Commiters", I've chosen Oxygen as "Product Version".
At the next page, I selected "EGit" and at the third page, "Oxygen" as "Target Platform", again.

2. When Eclipse was ready with installing everything, I made a few changes at, and

3. I closed "EGit Tests" working set because of cyclic dependencies.

What do I have to do now to get "something" which is installable in an existing Oxygen Eclipse installation on a different computer?

I don't mind if I have to replace some jars or setup my own update page.

Keep in mind that Eclipse Oxygen for Java EE developers already contains EGit / JGit which should be replaced with my version.

I tried exporting "EGit" working set as "Deployable plug-ins and fragments" with following options:
-Selected "Available Plug-ins and Fragments":

These are the plugins already installed in a fresh Oxygen for J2EE developers edition.

-Destination: Directory
-Options: just selected "Package plug-ins as individual JAR archives"

The export went well, I got my jars.

But I don't know how and where I have to paste them and if I have to remove the old jars in Eclipse.

I tried pasting them in the dropin folder, removed old jars in plugin folder and pasted my new ones there...
Nothing worked :-(

Thanks in advance for every answer :-)

Easiest is to run the maven builds in a terminal. If you changed only EGit, just run the EGit maven build as described in the contributor guide. (I.e., include the -Djgit-site=... wiith the path to the correct JGit update site). Or alternative first build JGit locally, also as described, then build EGit.

The EGit build produces an update site in org.eclipse.egit.repository/target/repository; use that to install the new bundles via "Install New Software..."
