Concering Apache ANT to export Plugin project... [message #690349] Wed, 29 June 2011 12:11

I have a sample plugin project, I have named it as :
I have code in it and it runs successfully as a plugin when I run it from Eclipse.

Now, i wanted to learn exporting this plugin project using Apache ANT. So, I created a 'build.xml' in this project :-

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="exportProjectSample" default="export">
    <property name="tgtLoc" location="C:/deploy"/>
    <target name="export">
         <pde.exportPlugins destination="${tgtLoc}"

Now, I select Run As Ant Build..... a window opens where I state :
"use the JRE same as the workspace". (The 5th / 6th Tab at the top)

Now, something amazing happens... It runs successfully, no problems there.. but it then deletes my build.xml file!!!! :-S

What does this mean? Why does it do it? What is the file it generates on it's own?
Is it possible for me to view the file it generated on its own? Where is it placed?
