PTP Developer Environment Setup (PTP 2.0)


  1. Java 1.5 or later (Note: for Linux, must be Sun or IBM's)
  2. Eclipse 3.3.x
  3. CDT 4.0
  4. OpenMPI 1.2 (the earlier 1.0.2 version is also supported)
  5. gdb 6.3 or later (earlier versions may also work)


Install Eclipse

Download and Install Eclipse 3.3

Install Features

PTP development requires CDT 4.0 and optionally RSE 2.0. RSE is is only required if you wish to use it for remote access. The preferred method for remote access is now to use the Remote Tools plugins that are part of PTP.

Install as follows:

  1. Launch Eclipse (as root if you installed Eclipse in a system directory)
  2. From the menu select: Help->Software Update->Find and Install
  3. Select Search for new features to install, click Next
  4. Select Europa Discovery Site, click Finish
  5. Select a valid mirror, click Ok
  6. Expand Europa Discovery Site
  7. Select C and C++ Development
  8. Select Remote Access and Device Development->Remote System Explorer... if you wish to install RSE
  9. Click Next
  10. Read and check I accept click Next and Finish.
  11. Click Install All

Checkout PTP Plugins

The easiest way to do this is to import using team project sets. The following table summarizes the available sets:

Project Set Contents Committer Access Anonymous Access
Core PTP Plugins (required) ptp-2.0-committer.psf ptp-2.0-anonymous.psf
Resource Manager Plugins (required) ptp-rms-2.0-committer.psf ptp-rms-2.0-anonymous.psf
Remote Tools Plugins (optional) ptp-remotetools-2.0-committer.psf ptp-remotetools-2.0-anonymous.psf
RSE Support Plugins (optional) ptp-rse-2.0-committer.psf ptp-rse-2.0-anonymous.psf
Parallel Language Development Tools (optional) ptp-pldt-2.0-committer.psf ptp-pldt-2.0-anonymous.psf

Use the files in the Committer Access column if you are a committer. Otherwise, use the files in the Anonymous Access column.

  1. Download the project set files for the components that you wish to checkout. At a minimum you will need the core and resource manager plugins. You will also need either the remote tools plugins or the RSE support plugins (assuming you installed RSE).
  2. If you are working on the PLDT then download this project set file also.
  3. Switch to the Plug-in Development perspective.
  4. For each file you downloaded:
    1. Right click in the Package Explorer and select Import...
    2. Open Team and click on Team Project Set. Click Next.
    3. Browse to the file and open it.
    4. Click Finish.

You should now have all the plugins in your workspace.

Build OpenMPI Proxy

  1. Follow OpenMPI build directions as listed in PTP Release Notes
  2. Follow the same directions to build your proxy plugin (sh BUILD for your platform), make sure it is the one in your workspace directory.
    1. Be sure to export this environment variable before compiling: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

Create an eclipse application launch configuration

Click on org.eclipse.ptp.core, Click on Run, Run as Eclipse Application
