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.
Gyrex requires a Java 6 runtime environment. We recommend setting up a Java 6 Development Kit in Eclipse which also includes the class library sourced for easier debugging.
This tutorial was creating 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.
For your convenience we created a screencast which demonstrates the necessary steps.
