Intro

Eclipse 4 offers some key concepts which ease the development of RCP applications.

Among these are

  • EMF based Workbench Model
  • Separation of Model and Presenentation
  • Customizable Rendering Engine
  • Dependency Injection ( no more Singletons )

In the near future Riena aims to support these new concepts to simplify the implementation of Riena applications in turn. Therefore there is a new branch in the Riena Git Repository where all Riena E4 development happens.

The following guide will walk through the necessary steps to setup your environment in minutes.

Get Eclipse

  • Grab the Eclipse Kepler 4.3 Release from the website
  • Install it to your preferred location

Setup Target Platform

  • Add new, empty Target Definition and give it the name rienaE4
  • Select Software Site http://download.eclipse.org/releases/kepler
  • Select following Components
    • Equinox Target Components
    • Eclipse RCP
    • Eclipse RCP SDK
    • Eclipse RCP Plug-in Developer Resources
    • Activate rienaE4 Target Platform

Get Riena

  • Clone the Riena Git Repository to any location in your file system
 git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/riena/org.eclipse.riena.git

For more information about using the Riena Git Repository checkout Riena on Git.

  • Import the Git Repository in Eclipse
  • Switch to Branch rienaOnE4
  • Checkout additional dependencies using the projectset in org.eclipse.riena.releng

If you have problems with the projectset checkout https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=380375

Start Your Engines

  • Open the dialog Run Configurations...
  • Use the launch configuration SWT ExampleApplication E4 to start the Example Application
    • If required, select Add Required Plug-Ins in the Plug-Ins tab
