Description Jordy Potman 2007-02-20 16:20:09 UTC
The Eclipse autotools plugin performs a make clean when opening a project, even
if the project hasn't changed since the last time it was opened. This is kind of
annoying on larger projects because they have to be completely rebuild every
time you close and later reopen a project.

I have had a quick look at the sources but I don't know enough about Eclipse to
figure out where this make clean is started from.

This is on an Eclipe Version: 3.2.0 Build id: M20070212-1330, with
CDT 3.1.2. The autotools plugin is from CVS.
org.eclipse.cdt.core, org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core and org.eclipse.cdt.ui
are from the cdt_3_1 branch from CVS with the autotools plugin
patches applied.

I thought Jeff had fixed this.  Jeff?

Jordy:  please file these against eclipse-cdt.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnston 2007-02-20 21:13:30 UTC
Autotools sits on top of the ManagedMake plug-in.   A fix was put in place for
general building where "build project" was always invoking a clean ahead of
"all".  I hadn't tested it with closing/reopening a project, but just did so
with my local check-out and it worked fine.  Could you please attempt to update
your sources and try again?  The fix was put in 01/26/2007 and was built into
the Fedora eclipse-cdt-3.1.1-8 for FC6.

Comment 3 Jordy Potman 2007-02-21 15:05:19 UTC
I figured out why it wasn't working for me. It is caused by a conflict with the
PDT feature ( ) from the PHP
Development Tools project ( ). If I disable the PDT
feature my autotools projects don't get make cleaned anymore every time I close
and reopen them. I don't know yet why the PDT feature is causing the make clean.

Thanks a lot for creating the autotools plugin. Now that I've got it working
properly it is going to be really useful.
