Eclipse plugin remote file system

Posted in PROGRAMMING, SERVERS, WEBBLOG by edeguzman on March 15, 2012

Have you ever experience working on a C++ project with GNU compiler where the build was on remote server. It’s really a pain where every now and then you have to upload your changes to the build server just for you to build.

I got a situation where I’m using windows workstation and I got a very old but big project which is multi-platform supporting windows, linux and solaris. Each of the three supported platforms has its own build server. I’m using Eclipse as my IDE for this C++ project  and good thing we have this NFS server that is mounted to all three platforms, having all my modified changes reflected to all build servers. Refer to below figure 1 diagram for the environment setup.
