Hello,

Since e4, xwt and all others are very very new technologies, developers are very much preoccupied with the developing the code base.

For those like me who are anxious to adopt these technologies, finding resources is very hard.

However, for at least XWT (Since I have so far most concentrated on that), there is a great source of information: the test project. I recommend checking out org.eclipse.e4.xwt.tests project from the cvs repository. Thanks to XWT developers, It has vast number of test cases where you can learn & play around.

Just wanted to let know the others.

Regards,
Hasan Ceylan

Where did you guys find:
org.eclipse.e4.xwt.emf.EMFDataModelService?

I tried looking around in CVS for this, but I could not find it. I need it so the org.eclipse.e4.xwt.emf test will compile.

Thanks.

I must have the wrong bundle. When I look at the
org.eclipse.e4.xwt.emf_0.9.0.v20090624-1330.jar

The classes in it were:
Activator, EMFBinding, EMFDataProvider, EMFDataProviderFactory and StringToURI.

Where is:
org.eclipse.e4.xwt.emf.EMFDataModelService ?

It is needed for the org.eclipse.e4.xwt.emf.test project.

Should I get a different bundle?

Thanks.

The version you used is too old.

What is the best way to update e4?

I tried the "Install New Software" approach from site:
http://download.eclipse.org/e4/downloads/drops/S-1.0M3-20100 1142115/repository/

That did not work. It told me it could not install because it was already installed. Instead, it tried to do an update. But it found several dependencies that could not be satisfied, so the update failed.

I tried to do a software update, but that timed out after 10 minutes.

Should I just delete my current e4 environment and install a fresh one?

Thanks.

That's what I do. I've been downloading the appropriate
eclipse-e4-SDK-incubation-I20100218-2100-linux-gtk.tar.gz file, for example.

The fact is that e4 isn't set up to update from one week to the next,
partly because we track the latest SDK/EMF/WTP I builds in order to
consume fixes and other stuff, like the SWT CTabFolder/CSS support and
the update to date Flexible Resource work.

But it also just hasn't been done, and anybody that would like to take a
crack at it can post to https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/e4-dev
or email me directly :-)

Later,
PW

Okay, I blew away my old e4 installation, and I downloaded and installed: eclipse-e4-SDK-incubation-1.0M3-win32.zip.

I installed this build, and now I get these errors all over the place:
The import org.eclipse.e4.core.services.annotations.In cannot be resolved.

There are some lines that say: @In
These produce this error:
In cannot be resolved to a type

Do I need an even later build, or is there something that replaced this?

Thanks.
