AW: [cdt-dev] Using 2.1.1 managed build definitions to 3.0

Hi Leo,
seeing the design document is helpful, but I still can't get anything working. So my first questions are
- is it wise at all to migrate to the new schema at this point or am I working with an alpha release?
- will support for the deprecated attributes be removed for the CTD 3.0 release? (The documentation seems to say: no)
- will there be more detailed documentation for the migration at a later point? (Like an overhaul of the extensibility document)
If you think it is worthwhile to make the attempt now, here is a snippet from my build definitions:
     <tool id=""
        name="GCC C Compiler"
The symptoms I see are simply that the compiler is not started anymore. When I start a rebuild the linker is called right away. I tried a few variations of the above, but always with the same result.
During my previous attempts with managed builder definitions I have found that many problems are resolved when I find the right superclass for an element. This was not possible at this time since the org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.ui plugin.xml, which contains all the base definitions, does not yet have any inputType and outputType definitions.
What is your (or anybody else's) advice?
- Leave it for a while.
- Get newer sources.
- Change my definitions (please specify which ones).
Thanks for your help
Norbert Ploett

Hi Norbert,


There isn’t any “How To” documentation yet.  Take a look at the design document in bugzilla 87673.  Basically you should define an InputType and an OutputType as children of the Tool.  The attributes that you mention have moved there.

Subject: [cdt-dev] Using 2.1.1 managed build definitions to 3.0


Hello folks,


I am trying some managed build definitions I wrote for CDT 2.1.1 in CDT 3.0 from the weekly build of April 25. They all do work, but some attributes are flagged as deprecated.

Specifically, in a "tool" definiton the attributes "outputs", "sources" and "headerExtensions" are flagged. Is there any documentation available about how I can make my definitions conform to the CDT 3.0? Or any simple hints?
