Re: [platform-dev] Eclipse Platform Build

I'm not completely sure what type of "reminder" (to whom?) so if you have a support-contract with Eclipse/RedHat/... it might be good to use the dedicated support channels for that.

General questions about a specific issue are better handled on Github issues/discussions if you feel any documentation is unclear there as people often respond faster there and you reach a broader audience.

In general you can take a look at

what will build you a full eclipse ecosystem, this takes quite long, but is the best start for beginners, and you can take a look at the Jenkinsfiles of a specific project to learn how they are build individually, but building SWT (natives) is not a trivial task.

Beside that, eclipse offers old releases "forever" so you can use any of these if they work for your older product, but you will likely see issues combining "old" and "new" components in eclipse as a whole.

Its not clear if you have a specific patch, if yes you can submit it as a PR and then it will result (if merged) in the next integration-build repository to consume.

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.
