Contributing

I tried to download the source following the directions given on the Mylar Contributor Reference, and Eclipse says that there are errors. What do I do?

There are several possible things wrong:

  1. You don't have the latest milestone of Eclipse; download the latest stable version from the "all downloads" page. Note that the downloads page that is easiest to find will show you the latest releases, not the latest milestones.
  2. You don't have JRE 1.5 associated with this workspace. Go to Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs -> Execution Environments and make sure that the 1.5 checkbox is checked.
  3. You don't have Jira installed, but do have the org.eclipse.mylar.tests installed. That is a separate download. See Mylar_Contributor_Reference#Workspace_setup.
  4. You have Jira installed but don't have Subclipse installed. See Mylar_Contributor_Reference#Workspace_setup.

Key Limitations

What limitations does Mylar have?

Older versions of Eclipse

Why doesn't the Package Explorer show hierarchy?

This should only be a problem with Eclipse 3.1. The Hierarchical layout is not supported in the Package Explorer. In the Package Explorer menu, select Layout -> Flat.

When I click on a .java file, the right editor doesn't open! What do I do?

This sometimes happens when using Eclipse 3.1. Reset the Java editor to be default for ".java" again via: Preferences -> General -> Editors -> File Associations. Upgrading to 3.2 will also eliminate the problem.
