How to Build DTP 0.7

Back to DTP Main Page


DTP 0.7 is built against the Eclipse 3.1 platform and the appropriate versions of EMF and GEF. You'll also need to have the DTP compatibility pack installed to build DTP 0.7, whether or not you will use it ultimately in Eclipse 3.2. The easiest way to install the compatibility pack is to download and add it to your Eclipse plugins folder, since the code in this layer changes (typically) when a new Eclipse 3.2 milestone build is released.

If you would like to build DTP 0.7 compatibility as well, you will need to do that first, before attempting to build the main DTP code line. Instructions for doing so can be found here.

Finally, you will need Apache Ant, version 1.6 or later.

Building DTP 0.7

  • Check out a copy of from DTP CVS (/home/datatools). Naturally enough, this is found in the module.
  • Check out a copy of the DTP 0.7 plug-ins from each module:
    • org.eclipse.datatools.modelbase
    • org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity
    • org.eclipse.datatools.sqltools

Note: Not all the plug-ins you will find in these modules are required. You can determine which plug-ins are required by inspecting the build files for each module found in the project you checked out in the first step.

  • Build
