Hi,

I'd like to contribute by providing a fix for bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=459484 but I'm afraid I need some help setting up the development environment. Here is what I've done so far:

I cloned the nebula repo, checked out master, and tried to launch /org.eclipse.nebula.examples/nebula.product using the eclipse IDE but I get some exceptions that some bundles could not be resolved, namely org.eclipse.emf.ecore version 2.9.0. I checked and the eclipse SDK 4.4.1 comes with 2.10.0. So I got eclipse SDK 4.3.2 which comes with 2.9.2. But now I other bundles where missing.

I tried to run mvn clean install but that failed in org.eclipse.nebula.widgets.radiogroup.tests because of java.lang.NoSuchFieldException: $jacocoAccess.

Since I could not find any documentation on how to setup a development environment, I'd appreciate any help.

My system setup

  • Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Java 1.8.0u25 64-bit
  • Maven 3.2.1
  • IDE: eclipse SDK 4.4.1

Hi Peter,

Did you follow our contribution guide [1] for patches? I thought I mentioned it in the bug.

Please ignore the errors that come from some projects in the repo. It is important that the calendarcombo project is ok because this is where you want to make your patch.

I will try the local mvn clean install because this should work. If you have any problems just ping me on my skype: wim.jongman or contact me on my gmail account wim.jongman

Cheers,

Wim

In order to close this thread: The maven build error was most likely caused by an issue with Java 8 and JaCoCo. It worked when using Java 7 instead. I contributed the fix. Thanks Wim for creating the IDE Setup page and supporting me on this one.

Cheers,
Peter

Yes, thanks for pointing this out. It seems that there is an issue when building with Java 8.
