<h1><a name="SlingIDEtoolingUserGuide-SlingIDEToolingUserGuide"></a>Sling
IDE Tooling User Guide</h1>

<h2><a name="SlingIDEtoolingUserGuide-Prerequisites"></a>Prerequisites</h2>

<p>The Sling IDE tooling is known to work on Eclipse versions starting with Indigo.
There is a hard dependency on the faceted project framework, which is included in the 'Eclipse
IDE for Java EE Developers' package. If you're running a different package, you can always
install it from the main Eclipse update site.</p>

<p>There is an optional feature which relies on m2eclipse. For now it only provides
project creation wizards, so if you don't use Maven you don't have to install it.</p>

<h2><a name="SlingIDEtoolingUserGuide-Installation"></a>Installation</h2>

<p>There is no official release yet, but I ( <a href="/confluence/display/~rombert"
class="confluence-userlink" data-username="rombert" >Robert Munteanu</a> ) am maintaining
unnoficial preview builds at <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow"></a>
. Feel tree to give them a try.</p>

<h2><a name="SlingIDEtoolingUserGuide-Overallconcepts"></a>Overall concepts</h2>

<p>The Sling IDE tooling is centered around the Server and Module concepts. A Server
is an instance of a Sling launchpad - or derivatives such as Adobe CQ - on which you deploy
your content. A Module is a collection of resources grouped into a single Eclipse project
which can be deployed onto one or multiple Servers.</p>

<p>The tooling supports content and bundle modules. Content modules typically hold Sling
scripts - like JSP and ESP files, client-side resources like CSS and JSS file, but also arbitrary
repository content. Bundle modules represent a single OSGi bundle.</p>

<h2><a name="SlingIDEtoolingUserGuide-Serverdefinition"></a>Server definition</h2>

<p>To create a new Sling launchpad server you will need to start a Sling launchpad outside
of Eclipse. We do not yet support starting Sling Launchpad instances from Eclipse.</p>

<p>To kick off, create a new Sling Launchpad Server using the File -&gt; New -&gt;
Other... menu entry.</p>

<p><span class="image-wrap" style=""><img src=""
style="border: 1px solid black" /></span></p>

<p>In the resulting wizard, select the External Sling Launchpad category and enter the
host name.</p>

<p><span class="image-wrap" style=""><img src=""
style="border: 1px solid black" /></span></p>

<p>Once that is done, press finish.</p>

<h3><a name="SlingIDEtoolingUserGuide-Serverconfiguration"></a>Server configuration</h3>

<p>The server will appear in the servers view. You can double-click on it to review
the settings which were automatically provided.</p>

<p><span class="image-wrap" style=""><img src=""
style="border: 1px solid black" /></span></p>

<p>There are a couple of important settings in the server definition page:</p>

	<li>port: used for connecting to the server</li>
	<li>publishing interval: controls how fast the resources will be published after a
change. We recommend setting the interval to 0, for fast deploy times</li>
	<li>username, password, context path: controls the connection details to the CQ instance.</li>
	<li>debug port: used for connecting in debug mode</li>

<p><span class="image-wrap" style=""><img src=""
style="border: 1px solid black" /></span></p>

<p>You can now connect to the server</p>
