ECF/Getting Started with Remote Services API

Install ECF 3.0. See ecf download.

In addition you will need Equinox in your target platform (either the Equinox 3.5 SDK or the parts that come with Eclipse).

Service Interface

As with any OSGi service, you must first define your service interface. Here is a trivial example 'hello' service interface:

package org.eclipse.ecf.examples.remoteservices.hello;
 
public interface IHello {
 
	public void hello(String from);
 
}

This service is defined, along with a simple implementation, in this project in CVS

cvs: :pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/rt
modules: org.eclipse.ecf/examples/bundles/org.eclipse.ecf.examples.remoteservices.hello, org.eclipse.ecf/examples/bundles/org.eclipse.ecf.examples.remoteservices.hello.host.rs, org.eclipse.ecf/examples/bundles/org.eclipse.ecf.examples.remoteservices.hello.consumer.rs

Here is a project set file for these projects.

The service interface above is contained in the o.e.e.e.remoteservices.hello bundle, along with a trivial implementation (in org.eclipse.ecf.examples.remoteservices.hello.impl.Hello).
