apple-extensions module on windows make Eclipse build difficult
check out a fresh kepler suite
do an "ant eclipse" command
import modules to eclipse (except for the apple-extensions module)
look at the build path for the kepler module: apple-extensions (missing)

I don't know if you guys ever try to build kepler on windows with eclipse,
but it takes a number of not-so-obvious tweaks to go from checking out
to a clean build.
The step of adding tools.jar is already documented on
but it also requires removing dependencies of outreach-2.0 and kepler-2.0
on apple-extensions-2.0 in the Java build path.
This includes removing apple-extension-2.0 from the projects tab and
apple-extension-2.0/src from the libraries tab.
I don't see a way around this with-out fixing the ant scripts that
create the eclipse project files.
This second step isn't on

We agreed this should be fixed for 2.1, so that kepler builds on all platforms (including windows) under Eclipse. However, this should not include a complete refactoring of the module system for handling native files -- that would be handled under bug # 5089.
#4 Updated by Christopher Brooks almost 10 years ago
I'm confirming that this is fixed in the kepler trunk under Windows with Eclipse.
However, as expected, the problem persists under kepler-2.0, the build
under Eclipse on Windows had the same failure:
svn co https://code.kepler-project.org/code/kepler/releases/release-branches/build-area-2.0/ build-area
ant change-to -Dsuite=kepler-2.0
and go apple-extensions errors.
My guess is that this change will appear in Kepler-2.1, which will have a separate set of instructions.
