Hello!

I have created a Project that uses the EMF Client Platform. Everything works fine when i run is as an org.eclipse.emf.ecp.application.e3.application.
But how can i finally create a standalone product that runs "without" eclipse. There are standalone demos on the ECP website which showed me that it is possible - and looked exactly like that what i want. I think exporting to RCP is the way for me but how do i actually do this?

Thanks!

Hi Chris,

do you want to define your oqn application, meaning do you want to
create your own design of a workbench? Or do you want to export your
running application into a stand-alone product (deployed as an .exe as
an example)?

Best Regards

Jonas

Hi Jonas,

I meant the latter. I want to export my application into a stand-alone product with exe-file (or linux-executable) to start.
I want to create something like the "Demo Products" in the download section http://eclipse.org/ecp/download.html .

Thanks for helping!

Regards,
Chris

Hi Chris,

OK, for this you need to define a "product definition" and export it.
As an example for a product definition, please refer to this bundle
org.eclipse.emf.ecp.products
,which contains the two product definitions of the demo applications for
ECP (for 3.x and e4)
I would recommend to reuse one of the existing products as a template.

You can start a product from within the IDE just like a run
configuration. Additionally you can export it from within the IDE or
using a build technology such as Maven Tycho.

Product files are actually not ECP specific, so you will find additional
documentation, google for "defining products eclipse"

Best Regards

Jonas

Hi Jonas,

now I have used the product configuration from here: github.com/eclipse/emf.ecp.other/blob/master/extra/org.eclipse.emf.ecp.application.e4/org.eclipse.emf.ecp.application.e4.product
If I Launch my application with the button in the testing section of the product overview I get an error message (attached test.log), which says that org.eclipse.emf.ecp.application.e4.product could not be found.
There are plug-ins missing in the dependency-tab, especially org.eclipse.emf.ecp.application.e4 and org.eclipse.emf.ecp.e4.application. The other missing ones are platform-dependant (carbon, cocoa, win32...).
Where do I get the Ressources for org.eclipse.emf.ecp.e4.application or org.eclipse.emf.ecp.application.e4?
Or do I have to change something else in my product configuration to make eclipse find my product? (see attached image for current configuration)
I hope this helps you to help me Smile
If you need any more information - let me know.

Regards,
Chris

Hi,

the platform specific bundles are not in the configuration. They are
added during the export. You can build this with maven tycho and you
should get products for the different platforms then.
If you want to launch it, you need to add the platform specific parts to
the run configuration (try "add required").

Regards

Jonas

Hi,

Maven tycho is another new chapter for me.
I will try this next week.
Thanks for your help so far.
I will be back in a few days making a new report.

Bests Regards,
Chris
