Re: [cdt-dev] Re: building the CDT

Another thing you can do, if all you're after is getting your changes installed in your local eclipse instance, is export into the current host environment:

Hi David,

The easiest way to do that is to use the Export wizard.

For example, to build the org.eclipse.cdt feature (I'm using Eclipse 3.6M3):

1. Select org.eclipse.cdt.feature in your workspace and select Export:
<08905176.gif>

2. Select Deployable features, click Next
<08784489.gif>

3. Select the feature(s) you want to deploy and specify the destination:
<08800249.gif>

4. Click Finish. It took approx 3-5 mins for this to finish.

You can then find the feature and plugin jars in the location you specified.

5. Copy the following exported directories/files to the dropins/eclipse folder of an Eclipse build. This will install the CDT feature.

Hi,

Have anybody ever tried to build CDT distribution from local sources
spearing fetching sources from dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/tools CVS
repository?


I tried to change map.cdt file to fetch sources I have changed from my
CVS repository and it doesn't work.


I also tried to figure out (using printouts) how org.eclipse.cdt.releng
and org.eclipse.pde.build_3.5.1.R35x_20090820/scripts/
work and lost the track. I don't understand how packages listed in
cdt.map are fetched from the CVS. The build process fetches them in
completely different order. Also I don't understand where from
âfetch_<package_name>.xmlâ files creation is guided from.

I thought I will be easily able to change scripts to either fetch files
from my CVS repository or by simply taking my local source files. And
both seem to complicated.

I will very much appreciate if someone can explain how to produce
distribution files from local sources (without CVS).

I found post from 2002
http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/cdt-dev/msg00112.html
with the list of steps to build CDT without fetching files from CVS.
According to it, I tried to import :
org.apache.lucene
org.apache.xerces
org.eclipse.ant.core
org.eclipse.compare
org.eclipse.core.boot
org.eclipse.core.resources
org.eclipse.core.runtime
org.eclipse.debug.core
org.eclipse.debug.ui
org.eclipse.help
org.eclipse.platform
org.eclipse.search
org.eclipse.swt
org.eclipse.swt.win32
org.eclipse.ui
org.eclipse.update.core

into my workspace (together with the packages they depend on) and then
to export everything as âdeployable plug-ins and packagesâ (eclipse
plug-in development option). But it doesn't work.

Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance,

David
