=== 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.<br>
 
 
#Select from Menu:  '''Window->Preferences->Plug-in Development->Target Platform'''
 
#Choose '''Add...''' button
 
#Initialize the Target Definition with '''Default: Default target for the running platform'''
 
#Specify Name:  '''ECF SDK'''
 
#Choose '''Add...''' button
 
#Select '''Software Site''' and '''Next>'''
 
#Choose '''Add...''' button
 
#In Add Repository dialog
 
##'''Name: ECF SDK'''
 
##'''Location: http://download.eclipse.org/rt/ecf/3.4/site.p2'''
 
#Choose '''OK'''
 
#Open the ECF tree item
 
#Select the '''Eclipse Communication Framework SDK''' check box
 
#Unselect '''Include Required Software'''.  This option should '''not''' be selected.
 
#Choose '''Finish'''
 
#Select the target platform you just created (i.e. ECF SDK)
 
#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.
