Re: [cdt-dev] Re: building the CDT

Hi David,

The easiest way to do that is to use the Export wizard.

For example, to build the org.eclipse.cdt feature (I'm using Eclipse 3.6M3):

1. Select org.eclipse.cdt.feature in your workspace and select Export:

2. Select Deployable features, click Next

3. Select the feature(s) you want to deploy and specify the destination:

4. Click Finish. It took approx 3-5 mins for this to finish.

You can then find the feature and plugin jars in the location you specified.

5. Copy the following exported directories/files to the dropins/eclipse folder of an Eclipse build. This will install the CDT feature.

Have anybody ever tried to build CDT distribution from local sources
spearing fetching sources from CVS

I tried to change map.cdt file to fetch sources I have changed from my
CVS repository and it doesn't work.

I also tried to figure out (using printouts) how org.eclipse.cdt.releng
and org.eclipse.pde.build_3.5.1.R35x_20090820/scripts/
work and lost the track. I don't understand how packages listed in are fetched from the CVS. The build process fetches them in
completely different order. Also I don't understand where from
“fetch_<package_name>.xml” files creation is guided from.

I thought I will be easily able to change scripts to either fetch files
from my CVS repository or by simply taking my local source files. And
both seem to complicated.

I will very much appreciate if someone can explain how to produce
distribution files from local sources (without CVS).

I found post from 2002
with the list of steps to build CDT without fetching files from CVS.
According to it, I tried to import :

into my workspace (together with the packages they depend on) and then
to export everything as “deployable plug-ins and packages” (eclipse
plug-in development option). But it doesn't work.

Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance,
