Getting started with JSDT

This page quickly explains how to install and develop JSDT; where to find the learning material; and how to get in touch with the development team.

To contribute to JSDT, please, Setup the Dev Env as explained in the contribution guide, or in this video, and get in touch with us.

Contribute to JSDT, Oomph & Source Code

The easy way to contribute to JSDT is using Oomph

  • Launch Oomph (64-bit) in advanced mode
  • Choose Eclipse IDE for committers as Product, and JSDT as Project to provision; then complete the installation.
  • When done, the installer will launch the new IDE, then you can close the installer
  • At the first start of the IDE, wait for completion of the startup tasks, which includes getting the source code from Git.

When startup tasks are completed, you can start the development, by fixing some JSDT Bugs.

To learn more about Oomph, first, look at the official documentation. Then, you can also check how we created the JSDT .setup: Oomph Setup for JSDT, an Authoring Example(31.20).
