Re: [eclipse-dev] How to build Eclipse from source?

Hello Saed,

On top of the Java build which Lars already referenced: If you need to build _everything_ from source, including dependency libraries and native code (SWT), you may want to have a look here:
https://wiki.eclipse.org/Linux_Tools_Project/Eclipse_Build

As far as I know, this project hasnât been active for a while, but you may still find helpful advice there. Iâm also cross-posting to the linuxtools mailing list, where you might find more knowledgeable people.

At Eclipse, we generally use checked-in binary copies of many native libraries as well as dependencies. If you can live with that, the Links from Lars are what you want â along with a Tycho build (âmvn clean installâ) of the CDT Repository and probably epp package build.

HTH,
Martin

    Hi,
    
    for the Eclipse IDE with Java, see
    http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/EclipsePlatformDevelopment/article.html#building-the-eclipse-ide-from-source
    and https://wiki.eclipse.org/Platform-releng/Platform_Build
    
    For CDT I don't know.
    
    Best regards, Lars
