RE: [birt-dev] Building BIRT outside of Eclipse


The error is caused by missing of some property setting. So the build
system used default value which caused error.
Readme.html under org.eclipse.birt.releng.birtbuilder has been updated.
Please check it out and try again. The properties which need to be set
correctly are mentioned there.

And we recommend you to use tagged version of Eclipse basebuilder. The
HEAD version is not stable and may corrupt build. (e.g. the change of
startup.jar location)
The version we used for BIRT daily build is vI20070209-1006.

Thanks, I tried following the instructions but they don't seem to work 
or maybe they are not up to date.

They say that org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder should be checked out which

I did using

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/cvsroot/eclipse co 

The instructions then expect a startup.jar to exist in the 
org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder folder but it doesn't exist.

I tried using the startup.jar from the baseLocation (Eclipse 3.2.1 SDK) 
but then complains that a file is missing

The following error occurred while executing this line:

The instructions also refer to a

That would be a shame, that's a great way to put people off the project 
and spend their time on other open source projects.
