Installing eRCP 1.1 [message #13012] Tue, 21 August 2007 19:23 Go to next message

Hi,

I am a newbie to Eclipse and have downloaded and installed Eclipse 3.3 and
the C/C++ IDE (CDT) successfully. I am not sure how to install eRCP 1.1
though. I downloaded and extracted the associated javadocs. The
instructions state to extract to a folder, which I did. I attempted to
install the folder plug-in contents via the Eclipse 3.3 workbench (IDE)
and this appears to have worked, but I am not sure. Is there a reference
link or can someone explain what actually needs to be done to install eRCP
1.1 correctly? I guess I was expecting to see something from the eRCP
contents in the Eclipse 3.3 "New Project Wizard" (which I don't). I am
mainly interested in C\C++ development using Eclipse. Thanks.

Hello John,

When I'm not mistaken, eRCP is really a target platform for your PDE
toolkit. So, the simplest way to test it, is:
* Download eRCP for Windows
- Extract to a directory, you can launch the sample
apps via batchfile right away.
* Launch Eclipse SDK on a new workspace
* Window > Preferences > Plug-In Development > Target Platform
and navigate to the eRCP installation (just above the plugins dir)

Now you can start writing applications against the eRCP platform.
I don't think there are any special wizards, because you just write
normal plug-ins just as with PDE -- only you write it against the
limited set of APIs from eRCP.

I'm also forwarding your message to the relevant eRCP newsgroup and
mailing list.

Thanks,
