In order to investigate a TC performance issue we encountered we
decided to build TC from source and to debug the issue ourselves.
Alas, building TC from source (from scratch and as a newcomer) turned
out to be a very mixed bag and became a significant effort for days.
Firstly, the documentation in
seems incomplete as it is not referring to the Eclipse components wich
are required in addition to what's in the Committers/PDE version,
respectively where from to get these missing components.
Secondly, the build result is highly depending on the following
version related decisions:
- Which Eclipse IDE version (not flavor) to use as the development IDE.
- Which target platform version to chose.
- Which API baseline version to chose.
Experimenting with the above resulted in a more or less voluminous
list of errors and warnings of different characteristics but each
result leaving one pretty helpless regarding what to do to reduce the
Under Linux we now succeeded to patch together a buildable
configuration using versions 4.9 consistently as we found this version
reference in the sources. Under Windows we are still failing to
reproduce this result. Trying the Oomph installer as recommended
didn't improve on that, rather the opposite.
Please provide a recommendation regarding the above version choices
and we'll try working our way forward from there.
