Scout Explorer view
In the Scout Explorer view select New Scout Project... in the context menu of the Scout Projects folder.
In this step, it is possible to choose:
- The project name (mandatory)
- The project postfix
- The project alias (mandatory)
<project name>.<plug in>.<project postfix>
It is possible to choose which plugin-ins need to be added. A Scout application is not necessary a client/server application. You can also create Client only or Server only applications.
But in any case you must include the shared plug-in in the project.
Because of the separation of the UI and GUI it is possible to choose the UI Plug-ins that will render the application.
This steps allows to choose the type of application that should be created.
Step 3 (Optional)
This step is only available if the RAP UI has been checked in Step 1.
Because the RAP runtime cannot be installed into the running Eclipse instance a separate target platform must be created. This target platform must contain all plugins to run the Scout RAP UI. There are several possibilities to create such a target platform:
- Create new RAP Target
This option is only available on an Eclipse 3.8 or 4.2 with the Scout RAP Target Feature installed in the running Eclipse instance.
When choosing this option a new target platform will be created at the location specified. This target platform is then defined by all plugins available to the running Eclipse and the Scout RAP plugins and its dependencies.
- Download RAP Target
- Existing RAP Target
An existing Scout RAP target location can be specified. The wizard then tries to detect whether the given location contains a complete target platform or only the Scout RAP target plugins. If a complete platform is detected, only the directory specified will be part of the target platform. Otherwise the given directory together with the plugins available to the running Eclipse will define the target platform.
- I'll do it later
When choosing this option the Scout SDK does not create a RAP target platform for you. The platform must be created manually after the Scout project has been created. The created project will not compile before a complete target platform has been created!
