Significant Milestone for Eclipse: Platform building with CBI

February 25, 2013

We just reached a very important milestone for Eclipse. The Eclipse platform has switched to building using the Common Build Infrastructure (CBI).

CBI will be used to build Kepler (M6 and beyond). This work has made building Eclipse super easy for anyone on a wide variety of machines. I build it on my desktop in about 30 minutes (90 minutes on my laptop). Give it a try to see for yourself.

I’d like to thank the core team who pushed it through to completion. Special thanks to:

Paul Webster, Thanh Ha, Igor Federenko, Krzysztof Daniel, Jan Sievers, Tobias Oberlies, and David Williams.

Also, many others responded by supporting the effort in various ways including advocating, testing, providing feedback, committing our patches, infrastructure, providing patches, and more. Thanks to:

John Arthorne, Alexander Kurtakov, Mike Milinkovich, Mike Wilson, Lars Vogel, Pat Huff, Steve Francisco, Mike Lim, Dave Hughes, Daniel Megert, Szymon Brandys, Silenio Quarti, Andrey Loskutov, Szymon Ptaszkiewicz, Markus Knauer, Yates Monteith, Gunnar Wagenknecht, Mickael Istria, Jayaprakash Arthanareeswaran, Aaron Digulla, Denis Roy, Matt Ward, Wayne Beaton, and more that I’m surely forgetting.

  1. Thanks for this. Now I can finally fork Eclipse. 🙂

  2. Is there a way for us to look at the pom files Eclipse projects are using? We want to mimic the build set up like Eclipse and it would be of great help to know the configuration. All things like parent, aggregator, etc. will help all Eclipse programmers.
