Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-88) Add new target to build.xml to build the plugin with Ant
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2008 14:33:25 GMT


Xavier Hanin commented on IVYDE-88:

We need to have this to ease our releases too. If we can avoid the dependency on eclipse ant
tasks I think it would be easier to use by people. BTW I think eclipse provides two ways to
create an ant script to build a plugin, one of the two does not use eclipse tasks, but generates
ugly code.

So I see several options:
- use eclipse ant tasks, and resolve the dependency on those tasks before using them (maybe
we could use Ivy for that, but we have to see if a complete install is required)
- use eclipse generated build file
- manually add the target to our build.xml

The third isn't that complex and we keep control over the process (which allow to automatically
generate a version like we do in Ivy build). The problem is that it isn't synchronize with
build information provided to eclipse, so we have duplicates in maintenance. The first option
require to clear out the dependency on eclipse for the build. I see no advantage in option
