Use eclipsec.exe when building headless RCP [message #493499] Mon, 26 October 2009 14:38 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm trying to build a plug-in based headless RCP product using pde
headless build. I want eclipsec.exe to be used as the launcher for my
product.

Unfortunately I found no way to define the launcher executable and pde
uses launcher.exe by default.

I only found this thread:

http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform.rcp/m sg23383.html


Is there any progress on this topic?

Best regards,

Matthias

There hasn't been any work on this item, the bug is
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=185205.

The eclipsec.exe is shipped in the org.eclipse.equinox.executable
feature, but nothing is set up to use it.

The simplest thing would be to just delete the launcher.exe and rename
the eclipsec.exe :)

Otherwise, you would need to have pde/build not automatically include
the launchers (set includeLaunchers=false in a product build), and then
provide your own feature that defines root properties including the
eclipsec.exe. This would be tricky if you are doing a p2 based product
as pde/build is doing a bunch of details for you that you would then
need to done manually.

I would like to keep my build scripts as product independent as
possible. Unfortunately both options would make it hard to name the
launcher executable as defined in the product configuration :(
