Re: [cdt-dev] How to build Eclipse from source?

Hi Saleem,

Yes it is possible to build everything from source, simply clone each project and run mvn package.

You need to consult each project's build  to understand the dependencies.

May I suggest that you start with some Tycho tutorials, perhaps or so that you can learn the technologies that Eclipse uses to build.

Good luck with this endeavour.

PS I'm not sure that x-posting these questions to cdt-dev and eclipse-dev will get the best response. Please consider a more targeted audience and please include what you have tried/what specific problem you are grappling with so that we can avoid the basics, if those are adequately covered.

Eclipse and CDT Developers,


Is it possible to build Eclipse IDE and CDT from source using one of the repos found here? Is there documentation on how this can be done?


I do not want to modify anything, just rebuild from source and then have the IDE binary available for use. I would like to redistribute Eclipse but the licensing says I must provide the source when redistributing. How do I do this? I am working with RHEL7/CentOS7.
