SMILA/Development Guidelines/How to set up integration environment
This how-to describes the necessary steps for setting up SMILA integration environment. Normally this setup is only interesting for SMILA integrators who just want to integrate their components in SMILA. SMILA committers and contributors should work with another setup described at How to set up the development environment.
Here is the list of things that you will definitely need for developing SMILA components:
- JDK 1.5 or newer - We successfully use both 1.5 and 6
- current Eclipse SDK - This how-to was tested with Eclipse Classic 3.4.2
- SMILA binary distribution

Normally you should work with some stable version of SMILA - either a release or a milestone. Since our first milestone M1 was not properly prepared for this kind of development you will have to work with some nightly build (we've fixed things there) as long as we do not publish our second milestone M2.
