Integration builds, nightly builds, maintenance builds - all of these form an important part of the Eclipse developer's work cycle and submitting to the build process is usually a painless and pleasant procedure. But if you were to listen carefully on build nights, you would often hear screams of torment erupting from the SWT hallway, as the team realized that they needed to recompile the natives on all 15 platforms that SWT supports. Drop by and find out how we've solved this problem, pick up some ideas to use in your own build process and see if I can build all 15 platforms in the duration of this talk.
 

Bogdan has worn many hats while working as a developer on Eclipse at the IBM Ottawa lab. His two current favourite hats have the following labels in them: "SWT committer" and "e4 committer - CSS engine division". He enjoys wearing both hats equally.
