Re: [dtp-dev] Documentation and Complete Installation/Build Instructions for SQL Query Builder

Hello Pinnacle Systems Group,

Wow, I see what you mean about the text being messed up at
I don't know what happened there.  I'll work to get that fixed.

The text at confusing (in fact incorrect), in that it says that you need to add the LPG Java Runtime package in order to run the DTP SQL parsers.  The LPG Java Runtime package is included in the DTP download package, as net.sourceforge.lpg.lpgjavaruntime_1.1.0v201004271650.jar.  I will correct (or remove) that text.

By the way, the "rebuild" that is being referring to is the regular Eclipse workspace build.  That is, first bring those plugins into an Eclipse workspace and then do a Project -> Build Project action in the normal way.  But you only need to do that if you intend to modify or extend the DTP SQL parsers.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Also, it would be very helpful if someone could correct the instructions page within the project site located at this URL.

I'mn not sure what happened, but the text of the code example on that page is unreadable.. perhaps this was taken as a screen shot

To the maintainers of the DTP SQL Tools package:

There is a confusing set of instructions posted to the Eclipse project website which should be updated and made consistent.

LPG Java runtime

The parser is generated using LPG, which is an open source project in ( To run the parser the LPG Java runtime is needed which is not included in DTP. After installing DTP, follow the steps below to add the LPG Java runtime to DTP.

  • Point your browser to
  • Download the package named lpgdistribution. This will save the file on your machine
  • Open the zip file and extract lpgjavaruntime.jar into org.eclipse.datatools.lpg/lpg of your DTP installation.
    org.eclipse.datatools.lpg is the placeholder plugin for the lpgjavaruntime and is in the plugin directory where you have installed DTP
Rebuild the org.eclipse.datatools.sqltools.parsers.XXX plugins which were not compiling due to missing lpg runtime.This will enable the SQL Parser to run


1) I cannot find any instructions in the project pages for this package on how to 'rebuild' the package as described in the directions above. 


There is nothing about this 'issue' posted on the Marketplace page for this package ---> byDate Updated:  May 6, 2015 - 22:42 Submitted by: Wayne Beaton

2) There is NO mention in the Marketplace page that the 'missing' plug-in has to be downloaded seperately, or the plugin having to be rebuilt, or how to rebuild it. 

 Thank you
