Installation via Marketplace

In Eclipse open the Eclipse Marketplace "Help -> Eclipse Marketplace..." and search for ECF.

Installation of ECF

The ECF Remote Services implementation depends upon some bundles included in Eclipse, so you should download and use (at least) Eclipse 3.6, You can download Eclipse here.

The ECF Remote Services bundles are included in the ECF SDK, which can be downloaded or installed via Marketplace or p2.

Adding ECF to the Target Platform / Installation via p2

When developing with Eclipse 3.5 or newer, it's possible to use a concept called a target platform. The target platform specifies the set of bundles used to compile and build against within the Eclipse PDE (plugin development environment). The default target platform is Eclipse itself, but the target platform can be set to any desired set of bundles. One way to develop applications that use some or all of ECF is to add the ECF SDK to your target platform. Then you are able to develop against and build using ECF functionality.

  1. Select from Menu: Window->Preferences->Plug-in Development->Target Platform
  2. Choose Add... button
  3. Initialize the Target Definition with Default: Default target for the running platform
  4. Specify Name: ECF SDK
  5. Choose Add... button
  6. Select Software Site and Next>
  7. Choose Add... button
  8. In Add Repository dialog
    1. Name: ECF SDK
    2. Location: http://download.eclipse.org/rt/ecf/3.4/site.p2
  9. Choose OK
  10. Open the ECF tree item
  11. Select the Eclipse Communication Framework SDK check box
  12. Unselect Include Required Software. This option should not be selected.
  13. Choose Finish
  14. Select the target platform you just created (i.e. ECF SDK)
  15. Choose OK

Your target platform should then be set to your current Eclipse, plus the ECF SDK. Then you can refer to ECF classes in your own bundles/plugins.
