How to manually set up the target platform

This page describes which steps you have to follow to manually define a target platform for SMILA.

  • Download the eclipse SDK (if you have not already done so) and the Delta Pack from the eclipse download page listed in the Setup Development Environment Preconditions section.
    • You should use the same eclipse version as target SDK and as the development IDE.
    • Please note that it really should be the plain Eclipse SDK to prevent naughty problems from occurring when trying to start SMILA, because of conflicting bundles etc.
  • Extract the SDK in a directory you should name something like eclipse-target so you don't confuse it with your IDE's installation folder.
  • Unzip the Delta Pack' contents into the contents of the eclipse-target folder, always answer yes if the system asks you to confirm overwriting of files.

This directory will be referenced as "eclipse-target" in the following lines.

In your IDE do the following:

  • Click Window --> Preferences --> Plug-in Development --> Target Platform
  • Rename the new target, e.g. to "Running target + SMILA.Extension"
  • Click Add... --> Select "Nothing: Start with an empty target definition" for target initialization and click "Next"
  • Click Add... --> Select "Installation" and click "Next"
  • Click on "Browse..." and browse to your "eclipse-target" directory (SDK + delta pack) --> Click OK
  • --> Click Finish in the "Add Installation" window
  • Click "Add..." --> Select "Directory" --> Click Next --> Select SMILA.extension/eclipse/plugins folder under local trunk as the location --> Click Finish
  • The target definition dialog should now contain the following entries:
    • Name: Running target + SMILA.Extension
    • In page "Locations" the following entries:
      • Installation icon with path to your eclipse-target directory, showing the number of available plug-ins
      • Directory icon with path to the SMILA.extension/eclipse/plugins directory in your checked out SMILA code, showing the number of available plug-ins.
  • Change to page "Environment" and select "JavaSE-1.6" as Execution Environment
  • Click "Finish" and activate the new target platform by checking the box left to its name.
  • Click "OK"

Doing so will trigger compilation of your workspace.
