Scout/HowTo/Installing Scout 3.8 (Juno) using the Download Package

< Scout‎ | HowTo

Wiki Home

This is the simplest possible installation. Download is available from the Eclipse Juno download page. After successful download extract the ZIP file into a directory of your choice. Start the included Eclipse executable and try some of the new features:

Attention If Scout is installed using Scout EPP M6, the Scout SDK doesn't properly recognize its environment and thinks it's running against Eclipse 3.4 (which leads to some bad behavior). As the bug responsible for this is already fixed, the work around is upgrading the Scout EPP installation using the nightly build.

Updating Scout 3.8 M6 with the nightly build is achieved through the following steps:

  1. Start Eclipse
  2. Open menu Help, Install New Software ...
  3. The Install dialog appears, then click on button Add ...
  4. In the name field enter Scout Nightly, in the Location field enter, then click OK
  5. Eclipse connects to the Scout nightly update site and offers the available components in the field below
  6. Drill down into the tree and select all items starting with the name Scout SDK
  7. Click Finish on the Eclipse install dialog
  8. Eclipse will then alter the install to an update (which is fine)
  9. After confirming the licence the Scout SDK will be updated and Eclipse asks to restart (which is fine too)
