Re: [tycho-user] Custom build steps that work in Eclipse and Tycho?

Hi Igor,

I’d agree that that’s not what I want to do. I’d rather use the maven or ant enhancers for the ORM to generate the classes at build time only.

I did just find an eclipse plug-in for the ORM package I’m using, and that might be the way to go - but not sure how to use it :(. 

I’m currently using an ORM included javaagent to do the instrumentation at runtime - however that’s where my problem lies - you can’t perform the instrumentation with just the JRE - it *requires* the JDK. 

Bundling the JDK would not only probably increase the distribution by quite a lot (I’m guesses at least double), I’m not sure how to bundle it into the application as the eclipse bootstrap understands the <rcp-app-dir>/jre ( <rcp-app-dir>/ with some hacks on OS X).

I believe runtime class instrumentation using javaagent or equinox
classloading hooks is far better approach in the long run.
