|[cdt-dev] Build standalone Eclipse with CDT and custom plugins, command line|
Dear CDT developers,
A few months ago I requested guidance from regarding generating
.cproject files from the command line. This project is now
deployed internally and users are happily generating CDT
configurations (from a web service backed up by command line)
specifically tuned for the products we develop at Prove&Run
I'm writing to you again because we would now like to send complete installations of Eclipse, including the CDT as well as a few custom plugins; to customers so that they are gently introduced to the code we ship to them. However, I don't understand how to do that. I know how to build standalone Eclipse using tycho by using .product files. But this mechanism requires to have a product to point to. In my case I don't have a product, simply a list of RCP plugins (or features, which we use to build standalone update sites).
In other words I'd like to build a vanilla installation of the
CDT augmented with our custom plugins; exactly as if I had taken a
vanilla installation and manually installed our plugins from an
update site. Do you have any pointer on how to do that from
the command line?
Thanks for your hard work on the CDT,
