EGit and JGit Builds Available

I have some good news everyone.

The EGit and JGit projects at Eclipse are producing consumable builds via Maven3 and Tycho.

It took awhile to get the build story working due to the diverse needs of all the consuming parties. There was a desire for JGit builds to produce p2 and maven artifacts and have those consumed by the EGit build. If anyone has worked with this mixed mode situation before, they should understand the pain of getting everything working. If you’re working in a mixed mode environment or already tied to maven, I highly recommend giving Tycho a chance (the team was also very responsive when we hit issues).

We will also be scheduling a release review soon to get an official incubation build out for everyone to try and give feedback. The only way the tooling will get better is if people try it and file bugs (or even contribute patches). You can be an early adopter and try installing the latest builds. We also have an extensive contributor guide online if you’re planning to contribute patches with Gerrit running to facilitate patch review.

If you hit problems or have suggestions, file bugs and try the EGit mailing list.

    Does this mean that EGit has a new official update site? Or is as of now https://build.eclipse.org/hudson/job/egit/lastS… the best site?

    The wiki (http://www.eclipse.org/egit/install.php) still lists the http://www.jgit.org/updates/ site

    The official update site will be
    http://www.eclipse.org/egit/updates

    We haven't set up the cronjob yet to do the synchronization.

    You can always use the build URL if you want to get access to the latest build :)

    Thanks. Sounds perfect. Go Egit!

    Hey Chris, it would be very interesting to see what sorts of difficulties you faced and how they were addressed. The Tycho wiki page hasn't had a single change in the last 12 months, so I guess you needed to find info elsewhere. Did you consider writing a blog post/wiki topic about that at some point?

    Cheers.

    Oh man, the difficulties… from JIT bugs to being unable to consume certain p2 or Maven artifacts. I'll put it in my blogging queue to go over how we setup the EGit and JGit builds which should help people get started.
