GMF in Eclipse 3.4 and Orbit [message #196066] Tue, 08 July 2008 12:13 Go to next message

The GMF plugin seems to require Orbit in its dependencies.
I've read that GMF only uses the "map" part of that plugin. The links for
just the map part of Orbit are broken on the GMF download page:
http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/gmf/downloads/?project=

Do I really have to install the whole 72MB Orbit package? Is it necessary
to have Oribt at all? I had no trouble using GMF without it before.
This is for Eclipse 3.4.

You can look here for individual Orbit bundles:
http://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads/drops/R200 80611105805/

The S-build we used for the 2.1.0 build seems to have been removed/archived.

You don't need all of Orbit, certainly. You'll need the jars listed in our
third party feature:
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.gmf/fea tures/org.eclips
e.gmf.runtime.thirdparty-feature/feature.xml?root=Modeling_P roject&view=mark
up

Or, you can install GMF via the Ganymede update site and get all the jars
you need automatically.

I got the individual .jars listed in the feature.xml.
Can I just create a folder for them put them there and create a .link file
in dropins that would point to that new folder with the .jars?
Is that enough to install them?

Also what's the use of the map file? There are many more .jars in it, is
that the whole Oribt?

Thanks for updating the links.

You can place the jars in the /plugins directory. Or within a folder under
/dropins (e.g. /dropins/orbit/plugins), though I've never tried it.

The map file is used by the build to obtain the Orbit jars we require via
http. And yes, it's the whole of Orbit.

Best,
Rich
