I like to experiment with the scout plug-ins. For example I want to try to create the planner field in SWT.

I have read the Scout/Contribution wiki page.

I still have some questions about it:

* What Eclipse version do I have to use to develop the scout plug-in. Is it a Eclipse RCP/RAP or do I have to use Eclipse Scout. (Stable release or Nightly build).
* How can I test my changes
* Is there more documentation on this.

Regards Bertin

Hi Bertin

First you have to decide which scout version you would like to enhance.

Do you want to fix a bug for the current stable release (Indigo)?

  1. Use any eclipse you like and install the scout plugins via updatesite. Or make it easy and use the "Eclipse For Scout Developers" which already contains the scout plugins.
  2. Install an eclipse svn client (we use subversive) and checkout the scout sources from here:

Do you want to fix a bug or create a new feature for the upcoming release 3.8 (Juno)?

  1. Use any eclipse you like and download and install the latest scout plugins via the nightly updatesite:
  2. Install an eclipse svn client (we use subversive) and checkout the scout sources from here:
  3. If you checkout the svg plugins you will probably get compile errors. Either just don't check them out or install the missing apache batik plugins.

In both cases you will get compile errors regarding javax.mail and javax.jms. This is normal. To get rid of these errors you need to put the javax.mail and javax.jms jars into your jdk. For more information have a look at this forum post:

You can find a little more information aubout the scout releases here:

You only need to do all this if you want to create and submit a patch for scout sources. If you just want to create the planner field for your project you can simple do this in your project specific UI-plugin.
