VB Pro & Eclipse

Maybe I'm just missing it...has anyone used Eclipse with VBPro? I searched the forum and nothing came up. I'm a little shocked. I have to be missing something...

Thanks,

I'm not too familiar with it, but isn't Eclipse an IDE for interactively developing and debugging applications, rather than an automated tool that would be used within a build process? I believe that Eclipse developers typically use automated tools such as Ant for actually building projects developed in Eclipse (VBP does include an Ant action).

That said, if Eclipse supports a command-line interface, you could call it from a Run Program action.

If it supports a COM automation interface, you could call it from a Run Script action.

In either case, you could also wrap it in a custom user action.

I ended up just using some batch and ant commands as you suggested. I guess I was just surprised to see that Visual Studio make commands for sln & proj files were an option and there was nothing for Eclipse that was as easy to do.

Maybe something to think about in a future rev...or maybe not given I'm the only one who seems to have mentioned Eclipse.

As always, you guys rock. Thanks for the quick response!
