Eclipse Buckminster

On this page we use buckminster to build and release the project.

Install Buckminster

First add the software repository for Buckminster, which is,

http://download.eclipse.org/tools/buckminster/updates-4.4

(I assume this is for the Luna version but the website seems very out-of-date and does not actually say this)

Install Buckminster

From this repository I loaded the core, buckminster and Git support features:

Install Buckminster

Plugin Buckminster Project

Create a feature project:

New->other->plug-in development->Feature project

 

Use Xtext Buckminster Wizard

Because I wanted to include Xtext projects I ran the Xtext buckminster wizard for these projects:

In Eclipse click on file->new and select 'Build Xtext with Buckminster' under other->Xtext->Continuous Integration. buckminster 1
The 'matching items' window is initially blank but typing a few letters into the top line brings up the options: buckminster 2
I left this page with default values and clicked on finish. buckminster 3

Build p2 Repository

Right click on the site directory and goto buckminster->Invoke action.

Select site.p2 or site.p2.zip, and click OK. This creates a p2 repository.

buckminster

Install from p2 Repository

In help->Install New Software.

Since I am using a local repositry I needed to add that repositry:

buckminster

It seems best to uncheck 'Group items by category'
