Hi,

I am new to Galileo but heard and read about using the "Target Platform"
option. However I don't know how to do it in practice. Here is what I want
to do:

- Build my plug-in for Eclpse 3.4 and 3.5.
- Deploy correct versions on my update site.

Previously I have only built it for the the most stable version of
Eclipse and then put it on our update site.

Q: How can I build for mulitle targetgets ( eclipse 3.4, 3.5)?
What url do I use to set Eclipse 3.4 as target platform?
Do I set 3.4 as active when I compile for my plugin project?

I guess what I am looking for is a step to step guide ( Maybe I can
create one for others to use.

All hints are most welcome.

br,

//mikael

There was this blog post that may be useful
http://ekkescorner.wordpress.com/2009/06/29/galileo-howto-de fine-a-simple-target-platform/
and this on adding the deltapack to your target
http://aniefer.blogspot.com/2009/06/using-deltapack-in-eclip se-35.html

If you are using adding content from a "Software Site", then
3.4 : http://download.eclipse.org/releases/ganymede
3.5 : http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo

You can also just add content based on an installation, which you can
just point to an unzipped eclipse:
3.4 :
http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.4-20 0806172000/index.php
3.5 :
http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.5-20 0906111540/index.php
