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

Thanks. We try to build on Windows because eclipse community or developer maybe need to be able to build on windows.


During PDE build process from Git, it generate 2 git clone repo cache:

1. Under BuildDirectory\scmCache

2. Under org.eclipse.releng.basebuilder\plugins\org.eclipse.pde.build_xxx\scripts\scmCache

According to Andrew Niefer's blog, set the "fetchCacheLocation" can only change the first cache location. Actually the second location path is longer.

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.
