Hi,

I have just started on ECF, and trying to understand it. I have checked out several tutorial applications, and they are not being built because, the dependent plugins (zookeeper etc.) are not available in the eclipse (helios) instance, and the update sites are not working.

Can any body provide link to download ECF will all the dependency included.

I want to do a simple http request (file upload) to a servlet running on jboss server.

Please guide me.

Zookeeper/ZooDiscovery is part of Helios and can be installed from the
Helios update site. Just point p2 to
http://download.eclipse.org/releases/helios

The latest ECF nightly build can always be found at
http://download.ecf-project.org/repo/N-HEAD-sdk.feature/

Are you sure you need a discovery provider to do this? It rather sounds
like you are interested in ECF filetransfer only (subset of ECF).

Thank you very much Markus for the reply.

I agree with you, i should not require discovery providers to do file upload through on http. But i wanted to run a tutorial atleast to figure out the flow.
BTW i have tried file transfer subset, but it says http is not a valid protocol.

In my case, i am preparing a zip file using eclipse plugin and uploading it to servlet running on jboss. Servlet will process the uploaded file and return back result as a zip. On receiving end plugin extracts the result from the resultant zip.

I have implemented this without ECF, using httpclient APIs. Now i want to swiitch to ECF.
I would appreciate if you provide further guidelines to achieve this.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Rafiq

I think there was some difficulty with the servers or network at eclipse.org yesterday (Wed), but you might try again now either at update site:

http://download.eclipse.org/rt/ecf/3.4/site.p2

or download this zip and load via local p2/update site:

http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/rt/ecf/3 .4/org.eclipse.ecf.sdk_3.4.0.v20101029-1626.zip

You might wish to join the ecf-dev mailing list:

https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/ecf-dev

as there are more resources there for helping people out.

I am the primary author of the ECF filetransfer API, so can probably assist you. It's not immediately clear that your use case is a perfect fit for the ECF filetransfer as it is...because the http provider (used by p2) is mostly focused on file download. There is a file upload exposed by the API, and some protocols have an implementation of file upload already in place (e.g. ssh), but the http provider does not have an impl of the file upload that uses an http put/post request. It would be quite easy to do, but it hasn't been a use case for ECF filetransfer that we've focused on as yet.

In any event, please feel free to contact me at ecf-dev mailing list or directly at slewis at composent.com to discuss further.

Thanks Scott,

The helios update server is up and I am able to get dependent component. May be server is up and ready again.

Further detail to my case, I am doing a multipart http request. this request is handled by a servlet on another end.

I thought file transfer is an approach to go, I may be worng, as i do not have much details on ECF yet.

However I have found that there is provider.filetransfer.httpclient, can't this be used.

BTW, I really appreciate the activeness of this forum.
