g-Eclipse Getting Started
Guides and tours through g-Eclipse
There is a screencast with a brief introduction to g-Eclipse available that covers the setup and usage of the AWS Cloud Computing services. In addition to that, there are two webinars available online: One covers all aspects of using g-Eclipse in a Cloud Computing environment, includes hints about using OSGi Equinox as a common denominator for Cloud runtimes, and compares different Cloud provider offerings, the other webinar concentrates on using g-Eclipse in a Grid Computing environment and includes a longer introduction to g-Eclipse and its tools for Grid Computing.
Installing g-Eclipse and getting access to a Grid middleware
Getting an account for Cloud Computing
You can sign up for an account to the Amazon webservices EC2 and S3. The account is free, but you will have to pay for using their resources. The g-Eclipse help system provides information about setting up g-Eclipse for AWS and contains an introduction to EC2 and its integration into g-Eclipse.
Getting a test account on a Computing Grid
If you want to give g-Eclipse a try, but you do not have access to a Computing Grid, you can use the Gilda Testbed. The g-Eclipse team cooperates with the Gilda team and provides a special setup description for g-Eclipse and Gilda.
First steps with g-Eclipse
To help new users when trying out g-Eclipse, we have included documentation in the Eclipse help system, and cheat-sheets which will guide you through the process of creating your first g-Eclipse Grid project. The content from the help system is available online.
