Which version of Eclipse are you using? The new version of Eclipse that is
coming out let's you run Eclipse in headless mode, and the ant integration
is already an "application" that can be run. I think this is how the Eclipse
project is running their automated build.

I think the Eclipse project generates build scripts for their various
plugins and then runs those build scripts. I would assume it's done through
Eclipse or planning to be done through Eclipse.

You can run Eclipse 2.1 RC0 in headless mode by:
[eclipse executable] -application antRunner [your normal ant arguments?].

Eclipse also provides some ant tasks that interact with the workspace. They
may be available in headless mode: eclipse.incrementalBuild
eclipse.convertPath eclipse.refreshLocal

Search in the eclipse help for "Ant tasks provided by the platform" and

Subject: Ant and Eclipse - more clear

I'm a total newbie in XML, ant and eclipse

I guess I was a little unclear about what I would like to
do, so I'll try and explain it again.

I would like ant to compile Java code written in Eclipse
every night (scheduled job). In other words I don't want
the build to be done from within Eclipse. The build should
be done by a call in for example a .bat-file

I've read an example that told me to write this in my build.xml <property
name="build.compiler" value="org.eclipse.jdt.core.JDTCompilerAdapter"/>

This doesn't seem to work:
"Compiler Adapter 'org.eclipse.jdt.core.JDTCompilerAdapter' can't be found."

I'm not suprised though, since ant don't know about eclipse.

Now I'm wondering: Is it really possbile for ant to use the built-in
JavaBuilder in eclipse to compile code OUTSIDE eclipse ?
