Re: [cdt-dev] Overnight build on managed make projects

There's no need to write anything new. The ant task 'eclipse.incrementalBuild' triggers the creation and execution of the necessary makefiles, if only we can get someone to apply the patch in so that it doesn't depend on UI elements. Here's a ant macro and a sample target that illustrates how one can set up automated builds.

        <target name="compile">
                < project="hello"/>

        <macrodef name="">
                <attribute name="project"/>
                        <echo>Building @{project} . . .</echo>
                                kind    = "incremental"
                                project = "@{project}"
                                builder = "org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.genmakebuilder"/>
                        <echo>Refreshing @{project} . . .</echo>
                        <eclipse.refreshLocal resource="@{project}" depth="infinite"/>

If I can dig it up, some months ago I wrote an eclipse --application
plugin extension that effectively ran eclipse to both generate the makefiles
for the local environment as well as optionally kick off and do a build.

Wanted to add in error reporting, console capture etc, but never quite
got around to it.

If there is some interest, I'll dig through my archives and pull it up.
