Clean product builds? [message #35477] Wed, 03 December 2008 11:48

I'm trying to create some product builds of some plugins. The builds are
compiling fine and the product runs okay, but if I don't delete the
folders created by the previous build then I can end up with junk files in
the folders that don't need to be there when I re-export (e.g. previous
versions of API versioned JARs).

This problem is compounded by the fact that I compile several projects on
multiple architectures, so I have work/Products/linux.gtk.x86/,
work/Products/linux.gtk.x86_64/ and work/Products/win32.win32.x86/, each
of which has multiple products in it.

Is there any way to get Eclipse to automatically clean before you make a
product? I don't want to just delete the "Products" or OS-specific folders
as I can have other product builds in them as well, and I don't want to
have to delete the product folder within each OS-specific folder
individually because it shouldn't be necessary. Not cleaning the product
drop point before export seems like a bit of an oversight.

In terms of technical details:

Eclipse: 3.4.1 SDK (M20080911-1700) on Linux x86_64
Product building:
* Delta pack installed
* Root Directory: [product name]
* Destination: .../work/Products/
* "Export for multiple platforms" ticked
* Win32 x86, Linux x86 and x86_64 versions built
Outcome: bloated .../work/Products/[OS]/[product name]/ directory if it
isn't deleted first because old JARs aren't deleted.
