Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5272) Stop building Eclipse plugins as Derby release artifacts
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2012 15:49:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5272?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13466884#comment-13466884

Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-5272:
-------------------------------------------

Thank you Bryan, for finding those instructions - they are now outdated since we don't make
the plugin anymore, and those instructions assume it is part of the distribution. I'll update
that page.

The instructions for building the plugin are in the derby tree, 
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/db/derby/code/trunk/plugins/eclipse/Readme.txt?view=markup

It's possible those instructions aren't applicable to the latest Eclipse versions, I think
I last used Eclipse 3.6, and I've found in the past that the eclipse versions differ slightly
(check buttons moved, added, removed, or getting different text) in this area from one version
to the next. I don't intent to experiment and update the instructions for any newer versions
of eclipse, but if someone ever contributes those details, I'm sure that will be appreciated.

> A consensus has developed that we should stop building the Eclipse plugins as part of
Derby releases. 10.8.2 will be the last release which includes these artifacts. After that,
people who depend on these plugins will need to build them themselves and, if possible, find
a place to publish the plugins. This topic has been discussed on the following email threads:

> This issue tracks tasks needed to accomplish this goal.
