Alcatel-Lucent nmake Product Builder - Eclipse Plugin 0.3.2 Guide Alcatel-Lucent

Eclipse project builds

Select the project in the Project Explorer, then build using Project > Build Project. This launches a top-level project build for the active configuration using nmake install. Build log output displays in the console view as seen below, in this case showing a debug build. Any errors in C source files (including C source files in nested directories) create problem markers in the Problems view that correctly map back to the source file location containing the error.

You can clean up by doing Project > Clean..., which runs the command nmake recurse clobber clobber.install. Uncheck Start a build immediately unless you want to rebuild immediately after clobbering.

The above procedure generates objects compiled for debugging. To generate objects compiled for release, change the active configuration by selecting the project in the Project Explorer, then select Project > Build Configurations > Set Active > nmake Makefile - gcc/release, and rebuild the project. Alternately, select Manage... to bring up the Manage Configurations dialog and select the desired build configuration as shown in the following screenshot:
