Setting up a Swordfish Registry from the Galileo update site

This section contains instructions on setting up the Swordfish Registry by downloading a specific Swordfish Eclipse Runtime Target Platform from the Galileo Update Site.
This section also contains information about running the Swordfish Registry.


Eclipse Galileo (Eclipse 3.5) build or later. The examples described here are based on Eclipse 3.5.

Setting up Swordfish Registry Target Platform

To set up the Swordfish Registry Target Platform, do the following:

  1. Create a new Target Platform definition. Click Window > Preferences > Plug-in Development > Target Platform.

  7. After the last step, a Swordfish Target Plaftorm consisting of Swordfish Core and Swordfish Registry bundles will be uploaded as shown in this figure.

  8. We are now almost done with this task. However, the Swordfish Core and Registry bundles require some equinox core bundles like, org.eclipse.equinox.common and org.eclipse.equinox.http.servlet. The easiest way to bind these to the current target platform is to take them from your current eclipse installation.

    To do this click Add in the Target Definition window; select Installation in the Add Content dialog.
