Where is VE? [message #51849] Sun, 25 July 2004 16:54 Go to next message

I have installed:

eclipse sdk 3.0
gef runtime 3.0
emf-sdo runtime 2.0.0
ve runtime S20040628

When I start eclipse, I don't see any way to create a new visual class.
When I try to add a library to my project, I don't see an option to add
the swt library. Am I missing something? What else could I try to get SWT
working?

Thanks,

Dan McLeran

All,

After scouring the message board for similar problems, I saw someone
suggest deleting the configuration dir. I did the following:

1. Shut down eclipse.
2. rename the configuration dir.
3. restart eclipse.

I was then able to add swt as a library.

Is there some guidelines to follow for when to rename/delete the
configuration directory? It seems like a weakness in eclipse. I thought
that eclipse was designed to recognize when plugins/added functionality
had been installed.

Dan,

Have you installed a VE build before this latest stable build? The
configuration issue is due to the VE builds all having the same plug-in
version number (1.0.0). When Eclipse starts up it checks for new
plug-ins and new versions of existing plug-ins. Since these development
builds of VE all have the same version number, it doesn't know that it
has to recache the VE plug-ins info. Removing the configuration
directory forces Eclipse to recache the plug-in info for all installed
plug-ins (including VE).

It is probably better to use the -clean flag instead of removing the
configuration directory. That flag causes eclipse to clean up and redo
the configuration.

No, this was my first attempt at installing the VE. I had been using
Eclipse as a Java and C++ IDE, previously. Like I said, after I re-named
the configuration directoy, all is well.
