Solution Description

BuildBoost is an open build framework with minimal-to-zero configuration that allows you to set up builds for Eclipse plugins and Eclipse update site deployments within minutes. BuildBoost is a Java/Ant-based framework and meta-build tool that rigorously follows the concept of 'convention over configuration' to enable minimal-to-zero build configurations. For this, it is based on the principle that all information needed to build an artefact is delivered with the artifact itself and must not be hidden in build scripts. Furthermore, in BuildBoost the build system itself is considered part of the software and thus BuildBoost includes a bootstrap concept that builds the build system itself with the software. This allows a continuous and agile development of the build system itself together with the software system. BuildBoost is a highly extendable framework. It allows to plug-in and to combine several build steps for arbitrary tasks. It already offers a collection of build steps that can be reused and combined to set up build systems for certain tasks within minutes. Since BuildBoost is a framework and not a new technology, it integrates with existing technologies.
