Adding content to www.eclipse.org/bpel/
Last modified on: April 29thth, 2007
Here are the steps necessary to edit and check the content on www.eclipse.org/bpel/ locally on
your development workstation.
Create a project in your Eclipse workbench called www
and checkout into it the following modules from
the repository dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/org.eclipse
- www/bpel - the main bpel web content tree
- www/eclipse.org-common - some common things that you need
- www/images - images
- www/projects - project related stuff
For example, this is what I see ...
You will need the CVS username and password to commit things to this repository.
If you do not dream in PHP code
then this is probably a good
thing to do. You can download from
After installing, restart your eclipse environment, and pressumably you should be able to
open and browse the repository and perhaps even see colors when editing those PHP files.
This concludes the eclipse end setup. Now onto running the www.eclipse.org/bpel/
locally on your workstation.
Install the XAMPP stack on your workstation (MySQL + Apache + PHP and Perl).
You download it from
Installation ought to self explantory if you can came this far.
If you do not want to do this, then you are on your own. I used my own installation of Apache
and re-used the XAMPP instllation of the rest.
Modify Apache Configuration
You need to modify the apache configuration so that it uses virtual hosts
and specifically defines one that we will use for the local eclipse.org environment.
There two steps here:
- Edit your /etc/hosts or
file to include this entry
or create an alias for localhost as in ...
127.0.0.1 localhost local.eclipse.org
- Edit your apache configuration to include the local.eclipse.org
virtual host. This should be in the configuration file etc/extras/httpd-vhosts.conf in your XAMPP home directory.
CustomLog logs/local.eclipse.org-access.log common
The DocumentRoot for your virtual local.eclipse.org host should be pointing
to where-ever you had created the www project (and where www/bpel exists).
Now restart the apache configuration and see how things work.
You should be able to point to http://local.eclipse.org/bpel/
and get the BPEL home page.
