Introduction

DTP Ganymede is part of the Europa coordinated release around Eclipse 3.4, and hence targets Eclipse 3.4 with associated dependencies as the primary execution environment. The DTP PMC believes, however, that our adopter community will better be served if DTP Ganymede is able to run in Eclipse 3.3.x as well. Therefore, we will attempt to make DTP Ganymede available for both the Eclipse 3.3 and 3.4 platforms. Be advised that if supporting both platform versions becomes too difficult, DTP Ganymede will have to favor Eclipse 3.4, since that is the Ganymede 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.

How Do I Get This Right?

All development for DTP 1.5 should follow the instructions here.

DTP 1.5 Build Environment

All DTP 1.5 posted builds will be created using:

  • Eclipse 3.2.2
  • EMF 2.2.2
  • GEF 3.2.2
  • Sun J2SE 1.4.2

DTP 1.5 Model Generation and Extension

All DTP 1.5 models will be created, updated and extended using EMF 2.2.x. We strongly advise the adopter community to do the same: generation of models in EMF 2.3 for use in DTP 1.5 is not recommended.

DTP 1.5 & Eclipse 3.3 Build Tests

In order to catch incompatibilities as early as possible, we will also build, on a weekly basis, the DTP 1.5 using Eclipse 3.3 with associated dependencies. These build results will not be posted, but any compile errors will be addressed.

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
  • Locale: English (US)

A secondary test environment for DTP 1.5 will be:

  • Eclipse 3.2.2
  • EMF 2.2.2
  • GEF 3.2.2
  • Sun J2SE 1.4.2
  • Locale: English (US)

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:

  • Use of the IBM Java 1.4/1.5 VM instead of Sun J2SE specified above
  • 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.
