Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] PDE Build issue from Git on windows platform

Build on Linux :-)

Actually, you can set the fetchCacheLocation property to a short path on Windows to store the local git clone.  Andrew Niefer described this approach in his blog

Hi all,
We have a problem during PDE build from Git on windows platform.
During PDE build process from Git, it generate very long path automatically (example: E:\BIRT\org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder\plugins\org.eclipse.pde.build_3.7.0.v20110512-1320\scripts\scmCache\ git___git_eclipse_org_gitroot_birt_org_eclipse_birt_git\UI\\src\org\eclipse\birt\report\debug\internal\ui\script\outline\node\
It lead to build fail because path is too long (max path length is 260 on windows platform).
Any solutions/suggestions for this issue?

Yong Jiang.
