    Hi, in eclipse 3.7.2 I imported the rssowl team project (see pic 1)
    I applied some little change to the project, for my private use, only for testing.

    How I "convert / export" the project (in eclipse) in a file like this ?

    In this archive-file, there is the executable file "RSSOwl".

    How I can obtain that executable file from the eclipse project?

    PS: I already know how to lunch rssowl from eclipse: I click the run button (the green button with the white arrow) .

    There should be an option in "File | Export" for this project, something similar to "Plugin-Development".
    How did you manage to launch RSSOwl from within Eclipse? I could not do that because of multiple errors / mismatch between Eclipse versions 3.4.x and 4.2/3.7. Which source did you use?

    RSSOwl itself ( should be exported as "Eclipse Product", the org.rssowl.feature* projects should be exported as "Feature" and the others as plug-in/fragment. I don't know if there is an ant file or something else to do automate build.
