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

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
