Can I use JDT as a standalone tool without eclipse env? [message #657225] Wed, 02 March 2011 03:05 Go to next message

Hi all:

I am developing a program analysis tool based on JDT core (primarily using the AST parser).

I developed the tool in the eclipse environment, and it works well (running inside an eclipse Java project, not a plugin project).


However, when I plan to export all class into a single jar and release the tool (in other words, executing the program out of eclipse), I found there is an unexpected exception been thrown (as follows). This exception has never been seen before when running my code INSIDE eclipse:

...
Warning: NLS missing message: plugin_notPluginClass in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages
Warning: NLS missing message: plugin_unableToResolve in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages
Warning: NLS missing message: plugin_pluginDisabled in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages
Warning: NLS missing message: plugin_instantiateClassError in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages
Warning: NLS missing message: plugin_loadClassError in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages

at org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.CompilationUnitResolver.parse(Compi lationUnitResolver.java:492)
at org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.ASTParser.internalCreateAST(ASTPars er.java:1194)
at org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.ASTParser.createAST(ASTParser.java: 801)



Here are all the dependent jars (all from eclipse-3.6.1/plugins dir):

org.eclipse.core.commands_3.6.jar
org.eclipse.core.contenttype_3.4.1.jar
org.eclipse.core.jobs_3.5.1.jar
org.eclipse.core.resources_3.6.0.jar
org.eclipse.core.runtime_3.6.0.v20100505.jar
org.eclipse.equinox.common_3.6.0.jar
org.eclipse.equinox.preferences_3.3.0.jar
org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.6.1.jar
org.eclipse.osgi_3.6.1.jar
org.eclipse.text_3.5.0.jar


So, I guess there maybe some implicitly dependent inside an eclipse project. I step into the trace, and find the code in
org.eclipse.jdt.internal.compiler.parser.Parser#readTable(fi leName) need to load some files like "parse1.rsc" , but I have not found such files in my disk.

I am a bit confused on that. Could any one kindly give me some hints in solving this problem? to release a standalone tool using JDT.

Any comments are highly appreciated.

thanks

-Sai

or do i need to include all dependent jars, when running outside of eclipse?

(since I saw:

plugin_instantiateClassError in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages
Warning: NLS missing message: plugin_loadClassError in: org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.messages

)

Did you rebuild or repackage the JDT/Core jar? Looks like you were missing some non-class files.

You could make your application an Eclipse headless application or include all the dependent jar files in the class path for your application.

You might have to use ASTParser.setSource() and ASTParser.setEnvironment() to be able to parse non Eclipse Java projects.

Hi Satyam:

Thanks for your reply.

I did not rebuild or repackage the JDT/Core jar. How could I do that? (I am not quite understand repackage here) I am really confused about where are those non-class files? and how did JDT load it.

I try to include all dependent jar files in the classpath, but the same exception is thrown. So, I guess there may be some jars (or files) an eclipse project automatically loads ..

Could you please kindly give me some examples or point me to some resources on the above points? as well as " ASTParser.setSource() and ASTParser.setEnvironment() to be able to parse non Eclipse Java projects."?

Many thanks. your help is highly appreciated.

Hi.

I tried it again, and found it still has the same problem. here is my code:

public static CompilationUnit readASTRoot(String fileName) throws IOException {
File f = new File(fileName);
Checker.checkTrue(f.exists() && f.isFile(), "The file is either not exisited or not a file: " + fileName);

int lastPathSep = fileName.lastIndexOf(Globals.pathSep);
String fileDir = ".";
if(lastPathSep != -1) {
fileDir = fileName.substring(0, lastPathSep);
}
File parent = new File(fileDir);
//create the parser
ASTParser parser = ASTParser.newParser(AST.JLS3);

//Globals.getClasspath()
parser.setSource(Files.getFileContents(fileName).toCharArray ());
parser.setEnvironment(SketchUtil.getClassPathEntries(), new String[]{parent.getAbsolutePath()}, null, true);
parser.setResolveBindings(true);
parser.setKind(ASTParser.K_COMPILATION_UNIT);

return (CompilationUnit)parser.createAST(null);
}

Still throw the same exception ;(

Is it possible that i should never use the parser.createAST(null) method outside eclipse?

I have just tried putting all the jars in the class path of the java command line and that seems to work for me.

Files like Parser1.rsc files should be in the org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.6.1*.jar. As I understand you were just picking up this jar file directly from the plugins folder.

thanks so much, Satyam.

I checked the jdt.core_3.6.1*.jar, and found it has been corrupted.

Everything works well after replacing a new one from plugin dir.

However, there are still many annonying messages like:

Do you have idea in how to remove such messages? Do I need to include another jar? or some non-class files?

thanks very much, really appreciate your help.

It could be similar problem with other plugins. Here I guess the problem is with org.eclipse.core.runtime.
