Re: [wtp-dev] Build quickstart


Below you can see a video and a link explaining how to setup the development environment for JSDT:

You can follow the same strategy, setting up the development environment, and then getting the source code for webtools. javaee instead of JSDT.


1. Identify your Target Platform and your IDE, and download the packages. As an Example, for Neon 1a: 
2. launch your Eclipse IDE, and set the target platform from Windows > Preferences > Plug-in Development
3. Get the source code from Git, and run the source code against the Target Platform you downloaded. 

If you want to get in touch with developers, you can also use IRC: #eclipse-dev or Mattermost: webtools.

Is there anywhere a quick list of the instructions for checking out
and building WTP and/or its various parts?

$ git clone
$ cd webtools.javaee
$ mvn clean install

doesn't seem quite sufficient. In particular it looks like multiple
repos need to be checked out first because they reference each other,
and I can't find any instructions as to exactly which ones are
