    Headless Build / Commandline Build / Build Automation

    Hi, I'm trying to set up an automated build of a DAVE project.

    Is there a way to do a build from command line with DAVE?
    Or alternatively a way to auto generate the makefiles?

    I tried
    DAVE.exe -nosplash -data "C:\Workspaces\DAVE-4.4.2-64Bit" -cleanBuild "<project>/Release" (starts DAVE but then does nothing)

    DAVE.exe -nosplash -application org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.headlessbuild -data "C:\Workspaces\DAVE-4.4.2-64Bit" -cleanBuild "<project>/Release" // crashes with java out of memory

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Hi,

    If you open a command line window in the Debug folder and the make program is in your path, you can just type make to build the project without starting DAVE4.

    Hi,
    Thx for he quick reply.

    I did it this way already – the problem is, when someone adds files or folders just in submodules, these will then be missing in the build.

    A working way over DAVE is needed because then the makefiles are auto generated there to be correct and include the latest changes.

    Hi,

    You need to add the files using DAVE (eclipse, managed make) itself, so that the makefiles are updated. This needs only to be done once.
    There is no an automatic way beside writing your own Makefile with your own rules in which i.e. all *.c files in a folder will be regarded as part of the compilation.

    Can you please add an option for automatic builds via CLI to Dave?

    Continous integration is an important topic nowadays.
    We need to be able to build a Dave project on a remote server.
    Other IDEs by other companies already support this.

    Hi,
    I tried this on a Dave 4.4.2 (Release folder) and this ends with an error
    "make: echo.: Command not found"
    echo command on the prompt works with no problem.. any ideas/ work arounds?

    Thanks,
    Anoop

    Hi,

    You can try at the command line the following
    Code:
    <DAVE installation path>\eclipse\DAVE.exe -nosplash -no-indexer -consoleLog -debug -application org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core.headlessbuild -data <workspace path> -cleanBuild "<project name>/<Debug|Release>"
    where you need to specify the DAVE installation path, workspace path, project name and build configuration, i.e. Debug or Release

    To make the above to work you need to edit the DAVE.ini file and remove the line –showlocation option.

    Regards,
    Jesus

    this works with Dave 4.4.2
