|[cdt-dev] Building CDT from source in master zip file: *.properties missing?|
I'm trying to build the CDT for debugging purposes, and I started from the cdt-master-6.0.0-I200905150807.zip, installing all features including the CDT source SDK itself, and then importing all the cdt plugins "with source" from the current installation; finally I debug the built set of plugins in the workbench. (Based on exchanges here in the past, I suspect this is unusual, and most people who want to do this kind of thing do cvs checkouts.) However, although the plugins seem to build correctly (with the exception of a couple of missing imports in one of the dsf plugins), they don't work at all, and this is because (thanks as always to Google) there are no *.properties files in any of the plugin sources in the .zip file, beyond the many about.properties, build.properties and plugin.properties files. This results in various odd exceptions, starting with an inability to change to the C/C++ Perspective, which I solved by getting org.eclipse.cdt.internal.core.settings.model.SettingsModelMessages.properties from cvs and putting it in the right place, but that just leads to another similar problem, and there seems to be a systematic problem here. For the moment I can fall back to a cvs checkout myself, but is this: -- user error/misunderstanding, -- unsupported work flow, or -- a bug I should file? There's a very long stack trace associated with this kind of problem, but the key fact seems to be: Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: org.eclipse.cdt.internal.core.settings.model.SettingsModelMessages cannot be cast to ResourceBundle at java.util.ResourceBundle$Control.newBundle(Unknown Source) at java.util.ResourceBundle.loadBundle(Unknown Source) at java.util.ResourceBundle.findBundle(Unknown Source) at java.util.ResourceBundle.findBundle(Unknown Source) at java.util.ResourceBundle.findBundle(Unknown Source) ... 97 more --it's the cast to ResourceBundle that was the Google trail to the actual problem. -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/Building-CDT-from-source-in-master-zip-file%3A-*.properties-missing--tp23643745p23643745.html Sent from the Eclipse CDT - Development mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
