RE: [cdt-dev] New Build Mechanism in Place


We'd like to get set up building CDT 2.0 and being able to run the tests
so we can be in a good position to submit patches. Can you give a few
tips on getting set-up to build CDT from command line...

I've had a look at the and can see the actual command to run +
how to  overwrite settings in build.xml. 
What I'm not clear about is:
- What other setup is involved, such as Eclipse plugins - should these
be unzipped somewhere, with version nos removed ?
- What (if anything besides the build scripts or releng plugin) do you
need checked out of cvs before you start ? 

Any tips to get me going will be much appreciated.

Hey all, 

Those who have tracked the nightly builds will notice some changes. The 
new build mechanism is now in place and is driving the nightly builds. 
Some things you'll see:
- Version numbers now have the timestamp of when the build started
of a build number.
- The platform specific features are gone and the base CDT feature is
the one you install (along with the builders).
- Zip files are generated. These are versioned without the timestamp
2.0.0). There is a zip for each platform and then one for each builder 
- The tests are now performed using Eclipse's test framework (again, we 
used to have this a long time ago)
- The 2.0 build page has the links to the test results as well as the
files (

For those who want to build the CDT themselves, I haven't had the chance

to write up a readme file yet. You can, however, take a look at the 
contents of org.eclipse.cdt.releng. Everything starts at the 
script which calls the build.xml ant file which then goes off into
other components including the PDE build scripts.
