Subject RE: [build] Building on Eclipse - FYI
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2006 12:06:18 GMT
Sian,

Thanks a lot for the detailed description of what I should do. I'll
follow your recommendations. :)

I'll investigate what we have already written about Eclipse to avoid
redundant info and repeating pages.
 
What I've just come across are:
1) The page describing how to set up Eclipse to develop Java code in
Apache Harmony
[http://incubator.apache.org/harmony/subcomponents/classlibrary/dev_ecli
pse.html];
2) The sections "Running an Application in Eclipse" and "Debugging an
Application in Eclipse "in the Getting Started with DRL
[file:///C:/SVN-23-10/docs/subcomponents/drlvm/getting_started.html#Ecli
pse_Hello_world]  

Would be great, if you find a chance to check whether the aforementioned
info is up-to-date :)

Cheers,
Sveta

Hi Sveta,

That sounds like a great idea.  I think the two main things you need to
do
extra on Eclipse on Windows are as follows:

1. Make a copy of vsvars32.bat from your Visual Studio install
directory.
If you have chosen the defaults when installing you will find it in
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\Tools".
Copy it
to somewhere convenient such as the desktop and add the following line
(just
below the last line that begins "@set..."):
start C:\...\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vmargs -Xmx512M
(where ... is the path to your eclipse installation).  NB. using
"-vmargs
-Xmx512M" is optional, but helpful to stop Eclipse running out of
memory.
Now just double click on this file to start Eclipse.

2. After you have started Eclipse and checked out Harmony from SVN, copy
ecj_3.2.jar into ..\eclipse\plugins\org.apache.ant_1.6.5\lib and change
the
Ant settings to include this jar (Window > Preferences > Ant > Runtime
then
select 'Global Entries' then 'Add External Jars' and add ecj_3.2.jar
from
the org.apache.ant_1.6.5\lib directory).

If you're happy to add that to the document that would be great.

On Linux you will also need to do 2, but I'm not sure if there's an
equivalent to 1 or not.  Has anyone else tried building in Eclipse on
Linux?

Thanks,

Sian
