How to build the Eclipse SDK

To run a complete build, on your local machine, run the following commands.
The `-DskipTests=true` will skip the tests which take a significant time to run, e.g., up to 10 hours.

# clean up "dirt" from previous build see Bug 420078
git submodule foreach git clean -f -d -x
git submodule foreach git reset --hard HEAD
git clean -f -d -x
git reset --hard HEAD

# update master and submodules
git checkout master
git pull --recurse-submodules
git submodule update

# run the build
mvn clean verify  -DskipTests=true

# find the results in
# eclipse.platform.releng.tychoeclipsebuilder/sdk/target/products/*

Build requirements

The build commands require the installation and setup of Java 1.8 or higher and Maven version 3.5.4 or higher.
See also the complete instructions on the [Platform Build wiki]( "Platform Build"). 
Note, it is highly recommended to use toolchains.xml and -Pbree-libs as decribed in [Using BREE Libs]( "Using BREE Libs").

Additional informations

Eclipse Platform Project committers should also read [Automated Platform Builds]( "Automated Platform Builds").

Release Engineers should also be familiar with other documents on the [Releng Wiki]( "Releng Wiki").
