Eclipse Builder plugin


This plugin provide builders that can be invoked a make target in an external shell.
  • BlacksunBuilder - an eclipse builder that invoke make eclipse-blacksun in an external shell.
  • MakeBuilder - provide API to make a specified target in background without progress monitor and would not refresh resource when finished. This is used by the MakefileEditor MakeAction. While the BlacksunBuilder is useful as an eclipse builder for automatically rebuilding a project, MakeBuilder is useful for interactively running tests (or other tasks) from a Makefile.

IMPORTANT: Blacksun builder plugin direct output of each task to the Eclipse Console View. Make sure to turn off Automatic remove terminated launch when creating new launch option in Window/Preferences/Run/Debug/Launching preference page. Otherwise, you would only be able to view output of the most recent task.
