Sorry for the many questions but even after reading the book I'm still stuck with a couple of things and it is kind of hard (for me at least) to find out what's going on and where something goes wrong.

I have a custom action specified in a cspex of an eclipse plugin

        <actions>
                <!-- Place your Actions here -->
                <public name="aranea.generate" actor="jdt.ant" always="true">
                        <actorProperties>
                                <property key="buildFile" value="build.xml" />
                                <property key="targets" value="generate"/>
                        </actorProperties>
                        <products>
                                <path path="src-gen" />
                        </products>
                </public>
        </actions>
...
        <alterGroups>
                <!-- Place your Group alterations here -->
                <public name="eclipse.build.source">
                        <attribute name="aranea.generate"/>
                </public>
        </alterGroups>


When I run
buckminster build


the action is not run. If I run

buckminster perform ...#eclipse.build


the action is performed.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Patrick,

The "build" command simply invokes the workspace's build mechanism. It
doesn't care about actions or any other properties defined for components,
or even the CSPEC/CSPEX, for that matter. Only the "perform" command does
that job, so it's natural that only the "perform" command picks up your
advised action from the CSPEX. If you want something to happen as part of
the regular workspace build process --- and this includes building in the
IDE --- you'll have to use a builder.

HTH,
Achim

Thanks for the information. In my case a perform is exactly what I need.

Does the reverse apply? So does a perform of "eclipse.build" do the same as calling buckminster build?

Thanks

The build command builds all projects in the workspace, whereas the
eclipse.build action only builds the component it is invoked on, and
(potentially) its dependencies.
