Subject FW: [build] Building on Eclipse - FYI
Date Tue, 07 Nov 2006 09:01:31 GMT

Sian,
Sorry for delay in response.

Thanks for your desire to help! 
Well, let's work at the page "Developing Apache Harmony Class-library
Code with Eclipse"
[http://incubator.apache.org/harmony/subcomponents/classlibrary/dev_ecli
pse.html] first, if you do not mind. 
AFAIK the majority of items on the page can equally apply to DRLVM and
classlib. IMHO would be great to edit the page to remove unnecessary
focus on classlib, to make the page equally relevant for vm developers.
To my mind, the introductory sections should be removed, as they are
about generalities that do not always relate to the header of the page.
Could you please take a close look at the page and create the patch to
improve the content and to remove all classlib-specific info? You can
use Harmony-2009 for it. It would be a great impact into development of
the site documentation for sure! If you need my help, just let me know.
The second idea is to move the page up, not to store it in
subcomponents/classlib. To make it easily accessible, we can store it in
top xdocs folder and link to the page from documentation.html, quick
helps and other build-development web pages. 
If you do not have any objections, I can create a patch with the
necessary links. 
What do you think?

Best regards,
Sveta

Hi Sveta,

Thanks for all your work on this.  I think you're right about the
Eclipse
information - I think most of it is fairly generic and it would be good
to
have it in the "Project Documentation" section.  I believe the new
details
about the ecj jar and the PDE-related settings are classlib-specific (-
Dpde.jreProfile=none etc), but that could probably be mentioned in the
document.

I'd like to help with documentation but I don't want to duplicate any
work
that you are in the middle of, so let me know if there's anything
specific I
can do, or if you're nearly finished then I can leave this area to you
and
get involved in the future.

Regards,

Sian
