Re: [eclipse-dev] How to build an older version of JDT Core

Thanks Carsten,

that looks promising but also complex. I had no idea there is a specific Eclipse flavour for Eclipse committers. I was hoping I can get this done by tweaking a Maven POM a little bit. Normally I work in IntelliJ IDEA, and for AspectJ I managed to set up my environment too just auto-import the Maven project and build all AspectJ modules, running tests via IDE etc. But like I said, we have no OSGi stuff in there, so that is somewhat easier. I guess, eventually I will have to not just switch to Eclipse (which I already did for JDT Core) but also set it up in a whole different way than now (IDE for Java developers). I am beginning to wonder if running the upstream tests on the AspectJ-ified version is worth the effort. It would be nice, though, instead of building kinda blindly without any tests and then testing the resulting artifact in AspectJ where we have a test bed. It would just be nice to know if the plain Java tests still pass after our extensions to the grammar and the compiler.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I would like to know how I can
perform a local development (snapshot) Maven build of JDT Core which is
not master. Background: In AspectJ we merge in release or master

I cannot answer your question regarding full build as I did not try that yet.
In case it helps to know a simple (kind of..) way how to setup your development environment for jdt to work on an older target version you may find some answers at
