Maven Tycho Eclipse example

This example shows how to build a complete (and functional) P2 Eclipse update site with Maven and Tycho. It can be used to create Eclipse update sites from various projects and features headlessley, e.g., with the help of a CI pipeline and without the need to run Eclipse tasks manually.



Name Type Purpose
org.example.impl Eclipse (plug-in) project Contains the implementation of a feature or an Eclipse plug-in (in this case an empty example).
org.example.impl.feature Eclipse Feature project Contains the necessary information for the feature to export.
org.example.impl.updatesite Eclipse Update Site project Contains the update site configuration (to include the feature above).
org.example.impl.dependencies Eclipse (plug-in) project Contains all necessary dependencies (JARs).
org.example.impl.tests Eclipse (plug-in) project Contains all tests and test-related content.
ci.yml File Example GitHub Actions configuration to build and push the update site.
pom.xml File Maven configuration file that contains the parent group/porject.

How to build

  • Build the project + feature + update site:
    $ mvn clean package
  • Build + install the project to the local .m2/ folder:
    $ mvn clean install
  • Run all tests:
    $ mvn clean verify
  • Change the version of the plug-in to a new semver (e.g., before publishing a new release):
    $ mvn versions:set -DnewVersion=0.0.2-SNAPSHOT
