Re: [] Better documentation forbuilding Eclipse projects

I would much rather point people to the CBI. In fact, I did make this recommendation to the folks that I'm speaking with. I'll ask again. I'm pretty sure that they need something now and so are compelled to look into "classic" means of doing a build.

Hi Wayne,

I haven't talked to Nick recently how far the CBI is, but
guiding folks to some manual setup of an automated build
right now seems odd given that CBI is just round the corner.

I'd think it would be wiser to direct project which need
some automated build setup NOW to get in touch with Nick
or Denis, and have them be guinea pigs for CBI... provided
that Nick, Denis or perhaps somebody else would be OK with
helping fresh adopters on CBI ?

Wayne: what is the number of projects that you anticipate
being in need of some automated builds in the near future?

Nick: would it be OK for you to tell interested parties how to contact the CBI masters, instead of investing time
and energy now in updating the Builder docs on the Wiki?

Hey folks.

I've been chatting with some folks from one of the Technology projects about creating an automated build. AFAICT there is very little documentation around that discusses how one goes about setting up an automated build at

I did find a page on the wiki [1] that seems to be a reasonable start at it, but it needs some serious love. I've started to give it some attention, and thought that I'd invite others to provide their own input.

Is anybody aware of better documentation that describes the build process with PDE Build using with pack200, JAR signing, and update-site creation support?

I realize that the Common Build Infrastructure work is ongoing in the Dash project, but my sense is that there's still quite a lot of work to do before wholesale adoption can begin.
