Set up Riena Toolbox

There is a IDE Support for Riena for Eclipse 3.6. It consists of Wizards for generating some simple Riena Apps, a treebased Editor for the Assembly-Extensionpoints and an Previewer for RCP-Views and SWT-Composites.

Setup

  1. install and run Eclipse >= 3.6
  2. install new software from http://download.eclipse.org/rt/riena/updatesites/rienatoolbox (make sure that you DISABLE the checkbox "Contact all update sites during install to find required software". That is currently important because of bug 306279 (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=306279).

So now you are all setup. To see it running:

  1. Create a new Plug-in Project (Would you like to create a rich client application = yes)
  2. Select "Riena Hello World" or "Riena Mail Template" frmo the list of templates and finish creating the new template
  3. Show View -> Other -> Riena Toolbox -> AssemblyEditor
  4. The Assembly Editor now shows the assemblies from all projects in the workspace.

Set up target platform for Riena apps

For a Riena-based application to compile, a certain set of bundles (plug-ins) must be available at compile time. This set of bundles is known as a target platform. Follow the steps outlined in either of the following two sections to set up the target platform for Riena applications (based on Riena 3.0.0).

Setup

  1. Download Eclipse IDE 3.6.x for your platform and start with a blank workspace.
  2. Create a new Target Platform definition that contains "Equinox Target Components" and "Eclipse RCP" & "Eclipse RCP SDK" from the Helios Software Update Site. Windows users can just download the complete targetplatform, unzip it and activate it under Window => Preferences => Plugin Development => Target Platform.
  3. Then install "Riena Target Components" from Helios Software Update Site.
  4. Activate the platform.
  5. Done.

Next Step

Now you are ready to start writing Riena applications. To get a feeling of the Riena framework, take a look at Riena's Example Applications and Code Templates.

Set up target platform for Riena on RAP apps

For a Riena on RAP-based application to compile, a certain set of bundles (plug-ins) must be available at compile time. This set of bundles is known as a target platform. Follow the steps outlined in either of the following two sections to set up the target platform for Riena on RAP applications (based on Riena 3.0.0).

Setup

  1. Download Eclipse IDE 3.6.x for your platform and start with a blank workspace.
  2. Create a new Target Platform definition that contains "Equinox Target Components" and "Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) Target Components" from the Helios Software Update Site. As an alternative you can just download the complete targetplatform, unzip it and activate it under Window => Preferences => Plugin Development => Target Platform.
  3. Then install "Riena Target Components" from Helios Software Update Site.
  4. Activate the platform.
  5. Done.

Next Step

Now you are ready to start writing Riena applications (ensure that in such a launch configuration the bundle org.eclipse.riena.ui.swt.rap is selected as required bundle). To get a feeling of the Riena framework, take a look at Riena's Example Applications and Code Templates. Make sure that you click on "Add Required bundles" before you start any of the examples that come with Riena.
