Eclipse per project build setting
Is there a way in Eclipse to set up Project>Build Project or Project>Build Automatically in a project by project case? Normally these settings are referring to all the projects of the current workspace. The closer I could get is Preferences>Workspace>Build Order but then again this is referring to the order of the builds.
No it is not possible by design. I quote from an older discussion about the same subject:
"we decided that a mode with autobuild on a subset of the workspace confused the notion of autobuild, which currently implies that the user needs to know nothing about builds. Our thinking is that a new working set build, for which you can add a key binding (or remap Ctrl+B), is close enough for the small group of users that want this capability."
So I guess that is your best bet.
