Building a product containing Eclipse SDK, several projects, and some custom features [message #592545] Sun, 01 March 2009 09:57

Hi,

I'm having trouble building my application. The application consists of
Eclipse itself, a number of Eclipse projects (EMF, GEF, ....) and a
small number of custom developed features. Thus, it is a bit like an
Eclipse IDE with pre-installed packages, some custom functionalities
and customized branding.

Currently, I'm building the application like this: Install Eclipse and
all the projects (EMF, GEF, ...), and use this as my development IDE.
Then, I have a product definition that includes mostly everything from
my development IDE and the custom stuff from the workspace. To build
the product, I simply export it. Now the biggest problem usually is to
create a functional development IDE where all the projects are
correctly installed. Futhermore, it always takes quite a lot of time
and obviously requires manual interaction.

Does anyone see a better way of building such a product? Should I try
to build everything (including Eclipse SDK) directly from sources? Or
will this just create many more problems?

All the best,
Marc
