  • Eclipse kepler (for RCP and RAP Developers).
  • For a seamless integration of Maven and Tycho into Eclipse, a Tycho m2e connector is needed. Installation of m2e connectors is accomplished as follows: click Window -> Preferences -> maven -> discovery -> open catalog and type Tycho. Check the “Tycho Configurator” checkbox.
Git clone

Build OM2M from source using Eclipse

Clone The OM2M project

  • Select Windiow->Show View -> Other .
  • In the dialog box, select the Git view.
  • Click on “Clone a Git repository”.
Git clone
  • In the second page, keep the “master” branch checkbox selected and click Next.
Git clone
  • In the third page, check the “clone submodules” and “import all existing projects after clone finishes” and click “Finish”.
Git clone
  • The OM2M project is now cloned and is visible on the Git repositories’ and Package’ explorers.
  • Now we will add the required libraries. This step will be removed when all third libraries will be validated by Eclipse.
  • Download the libraries from this link:
  • Extract OM2M-libs and add the following libraries to "org.eclipse.om2m" repository as follows:
    • "db4o-core-java5-8.1-SNAPSHOT.jar" library under "org.eclipse.om2m.core\libs",
    • "obix.jar" library under "org.eclipse.om2m.commons\libs",
    • "xsd" folder under "org.eclipse.om2m.commons\src\main\resources".

Build OM2M using maven

  • Select “org.eclipse.om2m” package and right click. Select “Run as -> maven install”.
  • Two Eclipse products will be generated after a successful built:
    • The NSCL product can be found on this directory: "om2m/org.eclipse.om2m/<os>/<ws>/<arch>"
    • The GSCL product can be found on this directory: "om2m/org.eclipse.om2m/<os>/<ws>/<arch>"

Develop a new plug-in

Create a new plug-in project

  • Create a new plug-in project called org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu via File → New → Other → Plug-in Project.
  • Enter the data as depicted in the following screenshots.
create a plug-in project: step 1
create a plug-in project: step 2
  • Uncheck the Create a plug-in using one of the templates checkbook and press the Finish button.
create a plug-in project: step 3
  • As result the following project is created.
sample ipu plug-in

Convert the plugin into maven project

  • Open the file in XML and update the src attributes as depicted in the following figure.
build-properties build
  • Select the created plug-in "org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu" → right click → configure → maven to maven project.
  • Enter the data as illustrated in the following and press the Finish button.
maven conversion: POM edition
  • Once the plug-in is converted, open the pom.xml file to edit the parent filed.
  • Click on "select Parent" icon and enter "org.eclipse.om2m" in the "Enter groupId, artifactId or sh1 prefix or pattern" field.
  • Select "org.om2m.eclipse" and press ok.
maven conversion: Parent edition
  • We end this step by updating the plug-inf project. For this, select the "org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu" project → maven → update project.

Add the plugin as a maven module to the OM2M parent project

  • In this part, we will add the created plug-in as a module to the om2m platform:
    • Open the pom file of the org.eclipse.om2m package.
    • Go to the modules tab and press Add button.
    • Select the org.eclipse.ipu.om2m.sample.ipu plug-in and press ok.
    • Build the om2m package and its sub-projects. To do this, select the "" package → right click → Run as → maven install.
    • Check the org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu was successfully built. At the buid end, we should get this result.
om2m build
  • Remark: To keep the same display pattern for all the platform' plugins, you can add description and name tags to the org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu' pom.xml file.
  <name>org.eclipse.om2m :: sample ipu</name>
  <description>org.eclipse.om2m :: sample ipu</description>

Add the plugin to the OM2M product(s)

  • The final step consists of adding the created plug-in to one of om2m platform products, i.e the gscl or the nscl executable. In the following, we choose to add the org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu plug-in to the gscl product:
  • select the package.
  • open the om2m.product file.
  • Press Add button and Type org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu
  • Click on ok button and save.
  • Build the om2m package and its sub-projects: select the "" package ? right click ? Run as ? maven install.
  • To check that the "org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu" was successfully added to the gscl product, run the gscl and verify in the console if the "org.eclipse.om2m.sample.ipu" is displayed.
