More control over Eclipse builders [message #62365] Wed, 20 May 2009 22:47 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to get more control over Eclipse builders, like
the ability to invoke the builder multiple times in a loop, or break the
whole build if one of multiple builders encountered an error.

I saw that eclipse calls the builders in BuildManager class, but I
didn't see any extension points or a way to extend/replace this class.

Are there any other way to get more control over the builders? Any help
is appreciated.

Thanks

It's not clear on what you're trying to achieve; my first instinctual
reaction would be to question why your requirements would make sense.

Are you considering this for the builder stack of a single project, or
are you looking for ways to coordinate builders across multiple projects?

I've always approached a builder as self-contained, and the building
operation itself as atomic.

Best,
Dann

I'm in a situation where the builders are dependent and I don't have
control over some of them, they are delivered to me, so I want to be
able to run them only if the previous builders finished correctly, and
run them multiple times on multiple input.
