Subject RE: [build] Building on Eclipse - FYI
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2006 15:28:03 GMT
Geir,

I've checked a brief webcast for those who want to see a step-by-step
guide to configuring Eclipse, and it seems to be up-to-date.
But we still have food for thought: "Getting Started with DRLVM" is
outdated, and "Working with Classlib in Eclipse" seems misplaced. 
The first doc needs an update (see Nadya's mail: Mon 10/30/2006 6:53
PM), and can be abridged to reduce purely eclipse-oriented content. We
can reference Eclipse docs instead
[http://help.eclipse.org/help32/index.jsp]. And the second doc has been
updated (see HARMONY-2009), but only related to classlib. 
Many of the things are pretty generic, and with minimal edits can be fit
for vm as well. I suggest that we move this doc up to make it more
visible and edit it so as to apply to the whole project, rather than to
classlib only. IMHO the "Project Documentation" section is a good place
for this doc
[http://incubator.apache.org/harmony/documentation/documentation.html].

What do you say?

If you do not mind, I can try to update the doc.
 
Best regards,
Svetlana

What

Is it actually out of date?
