Building IMP from Source
Here are the basic steps:
- Get all the necessary projects from source. If you use either the IMP RelEng
tools or the Team Projects Sets (see
Getting the IMP Source for instructions),
you'll be sure to have all the projects you need.
- Define the Ant property eclipse.target.platform to point to the Eclipse
platform you'll be targetting:
Usually this is the same as the Eclipse installation you're currently running.
- Run the script exportUpdate.xml in the org.eclipse.imp.update
The result should be an update site archive in the org.eclipse.imp.update
project, with a build qualifier based on the current date/time.
You should be able to install directly from this archive, or post it on a web
server for others to install from.
