To get a working workspace ready for ATF development you will need to checkout the ATF source code and download it's dependencies. Following steps describe how to do that.
1. Get an Eclipse 3.5 SDK.
- Click on above link and save it as a file.
- In Eclipse, press File -> Import and choose Team -> Team Project Set, press Next.
- Select the downloaded file and press Finish.
- This will take a few minutes to download the source code from Eclipse CVS.
2. Configure Target Platform to include all features required to compile and run ATF source code.
- One of the checked out projects is org.eclipse.atf.releng
- Find and open in your workspace file org.eclipse.atf.releng/pde/atf.target and set it as default target platform by pressing a link in editor upper right corner.
- Again, this can take even a longer while, because Eclipse now needs to download features from Mozilla, Webtools, EMF and Orbit update sites.
3. Launch ATF using preconfigured launch configuration
- Choose Run -> Run Configurations...
- In Run Configurations window choose Eclipse Application -> ATF and press Run
Steps for old ATF up to version 0.2.3
To get a working wokspace:
1. Get an Eclipse 3.3 SDK
- This gives you the basic eclipse environment that does not come with the ATF all-in-one
2. Install the ATF all-in one in that Eclipse environment
- The ATF all-in-one contains the dependencies on Mozilla plugins (XULRunner, JavaXPCOM, etc). Its "all stuff you need to add on to Eclipse to get ATF".
3. If working with the source for Milestone 4 download the Team Set for Milestone 4
- This source will re-build the Ajax-Toolkit plugins that are part of the ATF all-in-one package, but not the Mozilla plugins. It overlays the all-in-one with new code from CVS.
4. To get the intial code for eval debugging download the Team Set for Eval Debugging
The HEAD is going up changes that will changes the required new plugins. When the changes are complete a team_set for the head will be made available.
