I am facing a problem on a tycho build for an RCP application that I did not develop. I'm integrating the build of the application in a build server. The persons that are developping the application are not using any automated build (this is my role).
I'm doing a lot of build in ant (and starting with gradle). I used to know maven...This to say that I am not a newbie in building tools but a little bit with maven :-)
I have read some tutorials about how to build RCP applications, how to use tycho to build them, etc. I have an output that is almost fine. But only almost.
The application is composed of one plugin (the whole application). The dev team is supplying only one folder for this application. Following the tutorials, I have declared an eclipse-repository that is packaged as eclipse-repository. I have added a feature that is built as eclipse-feature. The feature is referencing the plugin as shown in the itp-rcp04 demo project.
The build is successful and the packaging of the application is done with the plugin stored in the plugin folder. My problem is that I need the jars that are listed in the MANIFEST.MF to be present in the folder configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/bundle/X/Y/.cp (where X and Y are numbers). But the org.eclipse.osgi folder is not present.
