Re: [platform-dev] Eclipse Platform Build


Does this help?

What I do to build the natives of SWT is:

cd .../bundles/org.eclipse.swt/bin/library
make clean -gtk3 install

In your case you might want to instead checkout eclipse.platform.swt and eclipse.platform.swt.binaries at the same tag (tags e.g. look like this: v4960r6). Whichever SWT version you want to use, there should be a tag, this tag can be used to checkout the binaries from the eclipse.platform.swt.binaries repository.

I'm not sure how you would bundle whatever you built or checked out with Eclipse though, without doing a full platform build (I only know this option, maybe there are others):

Keep in mind wikis could be outdated.

Best regards,

Subject: Eclipse Platform Build




In order to fix the SUSE crash issue : (which is a critical one for us), we are trying to build the eclipse.platform.swt and eclipse.platform.swt.binaries locally and add to our product (built using maven tycho plugin), rather than getting it from the eclipse repo. So could you please help me with proper documents to do SWT and platform specific binaries locally?


Basically we are trying to achieve the below thing:

  • Upgrade all the plugins from eclipse platform repo to latest version.
  • But keep swt and org.eclipse.swt.gtk.linux.x86_64 plugins to the one from eclipse platform 4.23 which is working perfectly in SUSE.
