Dojo Builder release candidate 1 available

Posted by Shane O'Sullivan on March 1, 2007

The first release candidate of DojoBuilder has just been released. DojoBuilder is an Eclipse RCP based tool for generating customised builds of the Dojo Ajax toolkit. It provides a number of useful utilities for working with Dojo, including checking out the source code from source control (Subversion), configuring the build, and running the build. For information on what it can do, check out

In addition to previous features described here, Dojo Builder now supports custom modules and XDomain builds. See for documentation and download details.

    I’d like to try your DojoBuilder as part of Eclipse via the Ecplipse update, but when I use the update URL in your Downloads section, I get the following errors in Eclipse:

    Network connection problems encountered during search.
    Unable to access “”.
    Unable to access site: “” [Server returned HTTP response code: “404 Not Found” for URL:
    Unable to access site: “” [Server returned HTTP response code: “404 Not Found” for URL:

    Please provide the correct URL on the Download page and let me know when its ready.

    Best regards,

  2. Ah yes, that was a typo, sorry. All fixed now. Thanks for letting me know.

    A very handy tool! Perhaps a name change in the view to “Dojo Ant Builder” would be the last notch!

  4. Already done in the latest version. It’ll be release some time this week, once I’ve worked out a bug or two. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I tried your builder for dojo 0.4.2 but ran into problems. I think the buildUtil file has changed causing issues.

  6. I’m putting an updated version of DojoBuilder on the site pretty soon, which hopefully will solve 0.4.2 problems. Can you be a bit more specific about what you were doing and what error message, if any, you received. What options had you checked? What profile file were you using?

    I was trying to create a custom profile… otherwise evrything was defaulted. I received an error that the buildUtil_0.4.2.js file did not exist in C:\Program Files\eclipse-SDK-3.2.2-win32\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\409\1\.cp\js . I tried thaking the buildUtil.js file from the dojo_builds.4.2\buildscripts and renamed it to buildUtil_0.4.2.js but this failed as the signature for buildUtil.makeDojoJs has changed from 0.4.1 to 0.4.2.

    Hope that helps.


  8. New version is up on the site now. Give it a go.

    Hello everybody,I have downloaded the DOJO BUILDER, but I don’t know how it works.It need “build.xml” archive and Ifon’t know where it is.

  10. Hi Jesus,

    Dojo Builder is out of date, and no longer works with Dojo. It was built to work with Dojo 0.4, and was not kept up to date to support the current release, 1.4.
