DTP 1.5 Build Environment

Introduction

DTP 1.5 is part of the Europa coordinated release around Eclipse 3.3, and hence targets Eclipse 3.3 and associated dependencies as the primary execution environment. The DTP PMC believes, however, that our adopter community will better be served if DTP 1.5 is able to run in Eclipse 3.2.x as well. Therefore, we will attempt to make DTP 1.5 available for both the Eclipse 3.3 and 3.2 platforms. Be advised that, if supporting both platform versions becomes too difficult, DTP 1.5 will have to favor Eclipse 3.3, since that is the Europa target. The DTP PMC is very interested in feedback from the community about requests for platform version support: please send all messages to the dtp-pmc mailing list.

DTP 1.5 Build Environment

All DTP 1.5 posted builds will be built using:

  • Eclipse 3.2.1 (3.2.2 when released)
  • EMF 2.2.1 (2.2.2 when released)
  • GEF 3.2.1 (3.2.2 when released)
  • Sun J2SE 1.4.2

DTP 1.5 Test Environment

The primary test environment for DTP 1.5 will be:

  • Eclipse 3.3 (latest milestone or release candidate)
  • EMF 2.3 (latest milestone or release candidate)
  • GEF 3.3 (latest milestone or release candidate)
  • Sun J2SE 1.5

A secondary test environment for DTP 1.5 will be:

DTP 1.5 Supported Platforms

DTP 1.5 will be built and tested primarily on Windows XP. Additional testing, as resources permit, will include the following variations:

  • Linux (Ubuntu)
  • Locales: Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin)

Note that the primary test environment will be used to validate all milestone, release candidate and release builds.

As always, DTP would welcome additional help from the community in testing wider/deeper. Please contact the DTP PMC, if you would like to establish a testing schedule.
