Installing Git

To checkout the source code your need to install git. You have different options, for instance:

  • [git scm] installs a minimal environment to run Git. It comes with a Bash,a Perl interpreter and the Git executable plus dependencies.
  • [msysgit] installs a build environment for Git on Windows. It includes git scm.

After installing a git environment you can open a git shell to run git commands (git bash or git-cmd.bat)

Downloading the Source Code

  1. Create a new folder and open a git shell in it. (bash on Linux/Win or git-cmd.bat on Win)
  2. Copy the following commands in a cloneStardust.cmd or file and run it (or run the commands individually)
git clone
git clone common
git clone components
git clone documentation
git clone engine
git clone ide
git clone ide.simulation
git clone ide.wst
git clone org.eclipse.stardust
git clone product
git clone reporting.rt
git clone
git clone reporting.ui
git clone ui.web
git clone repository
git clone ui.common

If you run git clone behind a HTTP proxy specify proxy details first.

git config --global http.proxy http://<user>:<password>@proxy:port

Binary Distribution

All Stardust source code has been submitted to the Eclipse git repository. A complete binary distribution requires libraries which are still pending approval by Eclipse legal, hence no binary distribution is available yet. One will be available for download form the project website as soon as the libraries have been approved.


  • The products libraries have been reviewed for license conflicts.
  • Dependencies that did not comply with the Eclipse Public License (EPL) have been replaced
  • The source has been submitted to the Eclipse foundation where it was reviewed with regards to intellectual property rights and licensing.
  • The source was refactored. All package names were change to the eclipse package names.
