Getting Started with DTP

Revision as of 10:31, 17 April 2006 by Jgraham (Talk | contribs) (Introduction)


This page describes steps to get started with DTP 0.7 and the 0.9 streams. We assume that you have installed the appropriate version of the Eclipse platform, EMF and GEF as described on the DTP downloadpage for your specific DTP build. We also assume that you have downloaded Apache Derby version 10.x, and are generally familiar with it.


While DTP is not solely about databases, we have used relational databases as our primary set of examples in DTP 0.7 and 0.9. Further, we have selected Apache Derby as our sample database. Therefore, this guide will show the basic steps required for connecting to, and working with, Apache Derby using DTP.
