Rebuilding target platform without closing Eclipse [message #597297] Tue, 12 May 2009 22:56

In my RCP project, the target platform is maintained by a script (actually a
maven goal). If the configuration changes (adding or removing plugins), the
developer needs to re-run the script to update the target platform.
Currently this requires closing Eclipse, running the script, and starting
Eclipse again.

Since the script is easily run in Eclipse, this an annoying step.
Essentially, I need to tell Eclipse/PDE to release the target directory and
suspend compilation while the target is rebuilt.

By the way, I've tried (as a workaround) to switch to the default target
temporarily, but this fails as jars in the old target are still locked.
This is also messy anyways, because switching to the default target
initiates a full rebuild which will have tons of errors.
