  • Search
    • Get IType from TypeNameRequestor result (148380)
  • Java Model
    • Allow classpath variable to be marked as deprecated (138599)
    • Allow classpath variable to be marked as non modifiable (156226)

Getting the sources

  • Make sure to target a recent SDK R3.3.x maintenance build.
  • Define a CVS connection to server pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/eclipse
  • Check out the R3_3_maintenance branch of the project org.eclipse.jdt.core.
  • The sources of this project have been compiled against a 1.4 JRE. A 1.4 JRE should thus be installed.
