This article lists necessary as well as recommended steps in setting up your development environment for developing Eclipse Gyrex based applications.

When developing Eclipse/OSGi based applications, Target Platforms are used to separate the running Eclipse (which is usually an IDE) from the target Eclipse system (eg., a server). Gyrex provides components that you can easily include in such a target platform.

Contents

[edit] Requirements

Gyrex 1.2 requires a Java 7 runtime environment. We recommend setting up a Java Development Kit in Eclipse which also includes the class library sourced for easier debugging.

[edit] Notes

This tutorial was created using Eclipse 3.6. We'll try to keep it up to date with upcoming Eclipse releases. If you find any issue or have trouble following the steps please get in touch with us on forums or newsgroup. Of course, you can correct any issues in the wiki right here.

[edit] Screencast

For your convenience we created a screencast which demonstrates the necessary steps.

[edit] Software Site URL

The URL in the screencast points to the latest stable development builds. We recommend using the latest official release instead. The "milestones" URL may not always work. The latest release URLs can always be discovered from our download page.

At the time of writing it's http://download.eclipse.org/gyrex/1.1/ for Gyrex 1.1.
Gyrex 1.2 builds are available at http://download.eclipse.org/gyrex/1.2/milestones/.
