||This is a plugin that provides enhanced IDE-like functionality to ProjectViewer by recognizing the names of different build files (e.g. Makefile, build.xml) and providing options to build the project through a context menu. If the project root contains a recognized build file, then you can build the project by right-clicking on the project node, expanding the build system's menu (Make for Makefile, Ant for build.xml, etc.) and clicking on the desired target. Alternatively, you can right-click on the build file itself if it's not in the project's root or you have multiple build files.
Integrated with Error List to easily locate build errors, and provides an Output panel to view the full results of the build.
This plugin is also extensible; additional build systems can be added by creating a new plugin extending this one. If you know of a common build system that you would like to see integrated into the main plugin, however, please feel free to open a plugin feature request ticket and assign it to me (kog13).
