how to pull in GEF source for debugging? [message #227974] Wed, 13 December 2006 16:16 Go to next message

Platform: Intel Pentium M, Ubuntu Dapper
eclipse 3.2.0,
GEF 3.2.1v20060921

Is there a way to pull in source bundles for GEF in such a way that
eclipse understands that it can use it to step into GEF objects and
methods during debugging?

If there was an option during initial GEF install, I missed it. And I
can't find any such option when I try to upgrade it.

I've googled a bit but haven't found anything. But then, what makes
eclipse find the source of eg. SDK classes during debugging, is
something of a mystery to me.

Thanx!

Hi Steinar,

Best way is to download the GEF-SDK download zip. It includes the source and
will be automatically integrated into the Eclipse IDE.

Cheers...

Thanx! I downloaded the GEF-SDK 3.2.1 zip, I unpacked it into the
eclipse directory, over the existing GEF jars, that were pulled in by
the eclipse software updates mechanism.

I'm still not able to step into the GEF code, though. I get "source
not found" errors and the .class file names displayed in the editor
tabs.

I've restarted eclipse after copying in the GEF SDK, and I've rebuilt
the project.

I've JADclipse installed to give me "source" for Java code I have to
source for. Could it be interfering here?

Nope. All removing JADclipse did was remove the flakiness around
opening .class files. Now I consistently get "Class File Editor"
editors with "Source not found". But there's a tip there:

The JAR of this classfile belongs to the container 'Plug-in Dependencies'
To configure the source attachment, go directly to the corresponding
configuration page (fore example for for JREs go to 'installed JREs'
page in preferences).

Ah... I figured it out: since I need to use some other OSGi bundles I
was running with PDE target platform set to a directory containing the
eclipse runtime rsync'd in, as well as my extra bundles.

So I needed to do a new rsync of the eclipse runtime (including GEF),
and _then_ I had debugging.

Thanx, Anthony! :-)
