<h2><a name="Build_Properties"></a>Build Properties</h2>
<p>Tycho uses the <tt>build.properties</tt> file <a class="externalLink" href="http://help.eclipse.org/luna/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.pde.doc.user/reference/pde_feature_generating_build.htm">as defined by PDE</a> to configure various aspects of the build.</p>
<p>Note that Tycho only supports a subset of keys defined by PDE. If a key is not supported, this may be because</p>
<ul>
<li>it&#x2019;s legacy/deprecated</li>
<li>it doesn&#x2019;t fit into the maven project model or the way maven is generally expected to work</li>
<li>there are other ways to achieve the desired configuration (e.g. using pom.xml)</li>
<li>it&#x2019;s a missing feature</li>
</ul>
<p>In addition to PDE, Tycho supports using maven property expressions like <tt>${project.version}</tt> in <tt>build.properties</tt> values. Note that these expressions will only be replaced in a Tycho build, not when using the eclipse IDE incremental build.<br />See the table below for which keys in <tt>build.properties</tt> defined by PDE are supported by Tycho or if not, whether there are alternatives when using Tycho.</p>
