Developer Resources for EMF FormsUsing Oomph we want to ease the setup pain for new contributors and committers of EMFForms. Here are the necessary steps:
- Step 1: Download Oomph for your Platform
- Step 2: Start Oomph
- Update Oomph to the latest version if required (Simple Mode: Upper right corner or Advance Mode: left bottom)
- Switch to Advanced Mode (Upper Right corner, Advanced Mode)
- Drag and Drop / add ("+" in the upper right corner) this profile EclipseSource Profile
- Drag and Drop / add ("+" in the upper right corner) this setup file: EMFForms.setup into the top list. You should now see a new Entry at the top: Select the EMFForms entry and double click it, it should be BOLD now:
- Press next and select the way you want Oomph to install your Eclipse and Workspace
- Press Finish and let Oomph do the magic
- Step 3: When Oomph finishes you still have to do some manual steps
- Locate and open the ecp.target file in the org.eclipse.emf.ecp.target.rcp bundle imported from the repository. When it is resolved, set this definition as the target platform. This may take quite some time at first.
- Step 4: Start developing using ECP
Framework Developer Documentation
We keep this information in our developer wiki.
In our GIT Repositories we are using the branching scheme described here.
We have a master branch containing the last release. A development branch containing the current development state and (hopefully) some feature branches containing new feature developments.
So if you are a developer please commit on the develop branch in the future. If you develop a new feature please open a feature branch and merge it back to the develop branch when your feature is finished. Don't commit on the master branch as it should only contain stable release versions merged there by the release engineer.
