You need the following prerequisites:

1. Eclipse J2EE IDE 2. Open LDAP 3. Tomcat 5.5 4. Java 1.5 (make sure you already have this installed)


From download Unzip the file into C:\Dev so that the following tree is created - C:\Dev\Tools\eclipse-jee-ganymede-win32\eclipse\eclipse.exe. Eclipse is now installed.


From, download Unzip the file such that you have the following directory tree - C:\Dev\Tools\apache-tomcat-5.5.26\bin. Apache is now installed.


From download the .exe file. Install the program by double clicking on it. Install into the default location (C:\Program Files\OpenLDAP\). OpenLdap is now installed. We will configure later.

Configure Eclipse

Open Eclipse by clicking on C:\Dev\Tools\eclipse-jee-ganymede-win32\eclipse\eclipse.exe. Choose c:\Dev\Code\STSServer as your workspace.

Configure Tomcat in Eclipse:
Go to Window --> Preferences
Click on ‘Server’ Tree, then click on ‘Runtime Environments’
Click ‘Add’, then select Apache Tomcat v5.5
Click ‘Create a new local server’
Click ‘Next’
Click ‘Browse’ and select C:\Dev\Tools\apache-tomcat-5.5.26
Click ‘Finish’

Make sure the java runtime is pointed towards your Java 1.5 installation. Go to Window --> Preferences. Click on 'Java' --> 'Installed JREs'. Make sure the java runtime (on the right hand side) corresponds with your Java 1.5 installation. If not, add and select it.

Download some setup files, but first setup connection with CVS server. Go to Window --> 'Open Perspective' --> 'Other' --> 'CVS Repository Exploring'. Right click --> 'New' --> 'Repository Location'. Host: Repository path: /cvsroot/technology User: anonymous (or your user name) Connection type: pserver From the cvs server tree, drill down thru org.eclipse.aperi, thru STSServer, right click 'SetupFiles' --> 'Check Out'
