Below is a simple how-to for installing & running the ScribbleShare
tutorial plugin. It should guide you to having a working ecf demo in a
few minutes. I can make tidy with screenshots if anybody thinks would be
useful.

Thanks...Bob


* Download and unpack into the same directory Eclipse 3.2 and compatible
versions of EMF, GEF, and ECF. Currently, these consist of the following
files:
- eclipse-SDK-3.2M5a-win32.zip
- emf-sdo-xsd-SDK-2.2.0M5.zip
- GEF-ALL-3.2M5.zip
- org.eclipse.ecf.sdk-0.7.5.S20060314.zip

* Start ECF Test Server
- Start cmd shell, cd to eclipse features directory
- cd to org.eclipse.ecf.serverfeature_X.X.X\bin dir (X.X.X is version
number)
- run startserver.cmd (for windows), startserver.sh (for *nix).

* Run eclipse.exe and import the org.eclipse.ecf.tutorial project from cvs:
- File->Import->CVS->Projects From CVS ->Next
- Host: dev.eclipse.org Path: /home/technology User: Anonymous Password:
<Leave Blank> Connection: pserver ->Next
- Select radiobutton "Use Existing Module"
- Browse to and select:
org.eclipse.ecf->plugins->org.eclipse.ecf.tutorial->Finish

* Launch Tutorial Plugin in another workbench
- Right Click on project org.eclipse.ecf.tutorial->Run
As->Run...->(Double-Click)Eclipse Application
- Change the launcher name to something meaningful, like ScribbleShare1
- Click "Plug-ins" tab, make sure radiobutton with "launch with all
workspace & enabled plug-ins" selected
- Click Apply->Run

* Connect workspace to ECF server
- Click "ECF" menu item->Connect Workspace
- Choose ECF Generic Connection Type
- Type ecftcp://localhost:3282/server for Group ID, "user1" for nickname

* Open Scribble Share View
- Click "ECF Tutorial" menu item->ECF Client

* Draw some stuff

* Repeat the above Launch, Connect, Open, Draw sequence
- You can reuse the previous launcher, but make sure you select a
different "workspace data location"
- Alternatively, you could create a new launcher with a different name.
- You should observe drawing objects created in one workbench view
showing up in another

* Bonus demo if you have another networked computer
- Repeat Download step on second computer. Change TARGET_SERVER String
in ScribbleClient.java to point to location of your first computer. For
example, replace localhost with network name of your first computer, e.g.,
"ecftcp://foobar.harvard.edu:3282/server"
- Repeat Run, Luanch, Open, Draw steps. Starting Test server on second
computer not necessary, you will use first computer for this.
- You should observe all workbench views displaying drawing objects in
sync

Hi Bob,

Screenshots would be terrific also. Any chance to get all/both in HTML?
If so, and you don't mind contributing these notes under EPL we'll put
up on the ECF web pages.

and Bob...many thanks!!

Scott

Hi Scott,

Sure, I'd be glad to be of use.

I've got the ecf source from cvs. I'll code up an integrated help page
(epl) and send it to your personal email for review, in case you want to
include it in a release.

Instead of swingin' for the fences, there's nothing wrong with a newbie
laying down a bunt to advance runners and help the team.

Cheers...Bob
