Re: [pde-build-dev] Default for target windowing system

Hi Andrew,
Buckminster headless is an equinox app. It's invoked using Java so the binary launcher is never used. We don't include a binary launcher in our product since it's essential that it platform agnostic. So that leaves "Guessed by OSGi". Is there anyway to influence that guess (in a generic sense, i.e. provide new defaults based on OS/Arch)?


Regards,
Thomas Hallgren

Thomas,
How exactly is the build failing, is this a problem in the running eclipse, or a problem in the build?


For a given eclipse, the os/ws/arch are set in this order:
1) From the command line or .ini file (-ws, -os, -arch)
2) automatically by the eclipse launcher based on how that launcher was compiled.
3) Guessed by OSGi


For linux, the guess was previously motif, this was changed for https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=185952, to be gtk starting in 3.4M2.

Hi,
When Buckminster performs a headless build on a Linux x86_64 machine
against a target platform that contains the RCP delta pack, the default
windowing system is always set to "motif". This causes the build to fail
since no such combination exists. While we do provide means to
explicitly set the targetWS, we would still like to set defaults that
corresponds to existing combinations so that the user typically doesn't
have to specify an explicit windowing platform. My question is, where
are these defaults picked up today and how can I specify other defaults?

Regards,
Thomas Hallgren
