Stardust/Source Code

Installing Git

To checkout the source code you need to install git first. You have different options:

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

After installtion 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 cloneStardust.sh file and run it (or run the commands individually)
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.build.tools.git build.tools
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.ui.common.git common
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.components.git components
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.documentation.git documentation
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.engine.git engine
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.ide.git ide
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.ide.simulation.git ide.simulation
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.ide.wst.git ide.wst
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.git org.eclipse.stardust
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.product.git product
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.reporting.rt.git reporting.rt
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.reporting.app.web.git reporting.app.web
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.reporting.ui.git reporting.ui
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.ui.web.git ui.web
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.repository.git repository
git clone http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot//stardust/org.eclipse.stardust.ui.common.git 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

Building Stardust

Build Tools

To build Stardust from the source code you check out as described above you need Apache Ant and Apache Maven. If you do not already have those tools installed please download them from their official websites and install them according to their installation instructions in a location of your choice, later called ANT_HOME and M2_HOME. We suggest Ant 1.8.4 and Maven 3.0.4, but other similar versions should work as well. After those preparations are done perform the following steps ( also see the readme.txt in the product folder).

Environment-specific Changes

Make sure your environment variables ANT_HOME, M2_HOME and JAVA_HOME are set correctly and ant and maven are on your path. In the following all relative paths are relative to the build folder - the one in which you downloaded the source code. Create a file called private.properties in the folder build.tools\etc. Modify the file with a text editor and add the following content:

java16.home=[your java home path]
m2.home=[your maven home path]

for instance:
java16.home=C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_32

m2.home=C:/tools/apache-maven-3.0.4

Maven Configuration

Open your maven settings.xml file (either in your user home\.m2 folder or in your maven_home\conf folder) and add this entry in the<servers> tag: 
<server>
  <id>stardust-3rdparty-repo</id>
  <username>stardust.contributor</username>
  <password>\{DESede\}BKab8uCs+3KRLHy/l2AeHQ==</password>
</server>
(Copy exactly as is. No need to replace anything here.)

Running the Builds

Make sure your machine is connected to the internet, open a command line in your build folder and then execute these two commands replacing [build_tools_home] with the absolute path to you build.tools sub folder:

set MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx768m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
mvn -f product/components-pom.xml -Pipp-build -Dbuild.tools.home=[build_tools_home] install

For instance:

mvn -f product/components-pom.xml -Pipp-build -Dbuild.tools.home=c:/stardustbuild/build.tools install

Depending on your connection speed and other factors the completion of the second command can take up to several hours. After the build of the components has finished successfully, you should find the resulting artefacts in your local maven repository. Now the eclipse p2 repository with the Stardust eclipse plug-ins can be built. Run the following command replacing [build_tools_home] with the absolute path to your build.tools sub folder:

mvn clean install -f product/pom.xml -Pfull-build,force-overwrite,ipp-build -Dbuild.tools.home=[build_tools_home]

for instance:

mvn clean install -f product/pom.xml -Pforce-overwrite,ipp-build -Dbuild.tools.home=c:/stardustbuild/build.tools

This will trigger the build of the p2 repository. After the build has finished successful, you will find the repository in the sub folder :

stardust/repository/org.eclipse.stardust.modeling.repository/target/repository/

and zipped as an update site:

stardust/repository/org.eclipse.stardust.modeling.repository/target/org.eclipse.stardust.modeling.repository.zip

Where to go from here?

Now you can use the build result - a local eclipse update site - to install Stardust. Follow the instructions in the section Local Eclipse Update Site (offline).

Next check out the resource in the Stardust Knowledge Base, especially the Getting Started section. You may also want to check out the Forum to post questions or just exchange thoughts with the community.

Troubleshooting

If you experience any problems downloading the source code or building Stardust then please contact us via the Forum.

Error retrieving BIRT Runtime

If you get the error below or something similar while running the p2 repository build (step 2) then this is caused by an instabilty of the connection with the Eclipse server. Retrying the same build command at a later point in time should resolve the issue.

[ivy:retrieve]  Server access Error: Read timed out url=http://download.eclipse.org/birt/downloads/drops/R-R1-2_6_2-201102191842/birt-runtime-2_6_2.zip

Errors fetching Dependencies

If you encounter errors during the build that indicate missing dependencies which could not be fetched from the repositories then try cleaning the ivy cache folder .ivy in your user.home (e.g. C:\Users\your.name\.ivy, if it exists) and the maven repository (check settings.xml in M2_HOME/etc and/or user.home/.m2 to determine the location).

If your are using Maven 3.0.4 behind a proxy please see here on how to fix the issue.

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.

Compliance

  • 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.
