Alcatel-Lucent nmake Product Builder - Eclipse Plugin 0.4.0 Guide Alcatel-Lucent

Overview

The Alcatel-Lucent nmake Eclipse CDT plugin supports use of Alcatel-Lucent nmake with Eclipse. The plugin currently provides managed build definitions that configure CDT for nmake builds for Makefile-based projects. The definitions leverage nmake "common actions" to pre-populate builder options with targets useful across a broad range of nmake-based projects. Out of the box, the plugin provides an nmake specific CDT Project Type and CDT build configurations for Debug and Release builds on several platforms. In common cases, the build definitions substantially reduce the need to manually specify build options for nmake based builds.

The plugin also provides C and C++ sample projects packaged as Eclipse CDT project templates. For the sample projects provided, the need for manual option setup is eliminated.

The procedures described here were developed for Eclipse 3.3, CDT 4.0.1, and nmake alu3.9 on Linux and Solaris and support the gcc C and C++ tool chains.
