    • including an implementation for the gLite [3] middleware.
  • g-Eclipse 1.0.0 (June 2008)
    including the following planed features:
    • including an implementation for a second Grid middleware (not yet defined)
    • revision of the core features
    • final definition of API and extension points

Obtaining the source code

The source code that is currently in the Subversion repository has some external dependencies which are not yet resolved. We are working on a solution and expect something to download soon. Please check this website for updates or the main website at [4].

The g-Eclipse subversion repository is available at svn:// It contains the usual svn directory structure TRUNK, BRANCHES, and TAGS. The development version of the code can be found in TRUNK.

Within this folder there are several subdirectories:

  • doc/ documentation and documentation plug-ins
  • features/ the core feature
  • plugins/ the core plug-ins (middleware independent) including eu.geclipse.core and eu.geclipse.ui
  • releng/ everything that is needed for building the feature; at the moment it contains a simple update-site project
  • test/ some JUnit tests

The plug-in eu.geclipse.core has one external dependency to a tar-library. Therefore it is not possible to compile it, until we have removed this dependency.

First steps with g-Eclipse

To help new users when trying out g-Eclipse, we have included some documentation in the Eclipse help system, and as cheat-sheets which will guide you though the process of creating your first g-Eclipse Grid project.
