We have proposed a new Eclipse project - - and are preparing to set up a build for it using the JIPP that will be provisioned for the project (and pulling source from GitHub). We want to do builds on various architectures- our top priority for builds, in order are:

amd64/x86 64-bit
Power 64
Z Series

I know that the Eclipse (Platform) project supports the first two architectures. In my previous duties as the WTP Release Engineer, I did builds on amd64/x86 64-bit. Are there Power 64 machines that the Codewind JIPP can use for builds? If so, what do we need to configure to utilize them? And, by any chance, do the JIPPs have access to Z Series architecture? Furthermore, are there any other architectures that our JIPP will have access to?

Please let me know if you have any questions/comments/concerns, and thanks in advance for any and all help.

PPC64LE machine (VM) is donated by Red Hat for Platform build specifically and is attached into Releng JIPP, it is managed by me not Eclipse foundation people. Red Hat provides access to such VMs to open source projects through a Fedora openpower hub ( In general all you need to do is fill the form at and wait for email with further informataion/steps. I don't feel comfortable sharing Platform VM with others as it's extremely lightweight and limited in terms of disk space so you would better have your own VM and manage it yourself.

Hope that helps,
