Re: [eclipse-dev] Command Line Compilation

This raises the question how one might setup a "nightly build" if you
are doing Eclipse plug-in's development (like the smart folks on this
mailing list :-).  Ant would work but is complex:

(1) Plug-in classpaths are complicated and depend upon the versions of
    dependent plug-is; the XML makes this easy within the graphical but
    it is tricky in plain-old Ant.  I guess you need to look at the
    .classpath and get Ant to understand that (somehow).
(2) SWT is not portable from the point of view of a Plug-in (I suspect
    this could be hidden from a plug-in if directory names were
    changed) e.g., the .classpath file for a Windows project plug-in
    is different from a Linux version (we have run into this issue
    several times..and have checked-in ".classpath_linux",
    ".classpath_osx" -- Windows folks get the real ".classpath" since
    they are the majority within our group.

Anyone had any luck doing "command-line" nightly builds of Eclipse
plug-ins, with Ant or any other tools?

Take Care,
