Subject RE: [build] Building on Eclipse - FYI
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2006 15:42:32 GMT
Sian,

Thank you so much for your positive feedback and appreciating the page. 

This page is only related to classlib. But IMHO 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. To my mind, the "Project Documentation" section is a good
place
for this doc
[http://incubator.apache.org/harmony/documentation/documentation.html].

How about that?

As for the "GS with DRLVM" doc, it needs an update, and can be abridged
to reduce purely eclipse-oriented content. We can remove unnecessary
screenshots as well.

Feel free to take an active part in updating the doc, if you have time
and desire :)

Best regards,
Sveta

Hi Sveta,

Thanks for doing that - I have had a look through your patch and it
looks
really good.

Your suggestions for changes to the DRLVM document look good too.  I
couldn't really find any good links for getting started with Java
programming in Eclipse on their website, the only thing that came close
was
this - http://help.eclipse.org/help32/index.jsp, which has some getting
started tutorials within the page.  There might be some better articles
out
there on other sites though, or we could just direct people to the help
system or 'cheat sheets' within their Eclipse installation.

Thanks,

Sian
