Re: [platform-text-dev] Build Script

I'm aware eclipse is huge, I guess what I'm looking for is what the typical development environment looks like for someone doing work on the eclipse project. I realize it doesn't make sense to build the whole project from source, only the parts that are being modified need to be in source. What I have not found anywhere on the eclipse site, is a good developer quick start. There is nothing that tells  you how to pull down the code and get a build running. I would really benefit from anything like that if it exists. I'm basically looking to add some block editing features that I think we be a pretty great addition to eclipse and I wanted to play around a little bit to get an idea on how hard it would be to add.

I'm a pretty experienced java developer and I've actually done some
RCP programming in the past. I wanted to checkout the latest eclipse
source and do a build to try my hand at adding a couple simple
features . Is there a build script(maven hopefully) that will download
all of the components i need to get a working dev environment up and
running? Thanks in advance.
