Introduction

This tutorial shows how to build an existing Scout application using Maven Tycho. Therefore we use the Minicrm application as base Scout application to integrate it into the Maven Tycho world.

Installation / Prerequisites

This tutorial assumes that your environment fulfills the following requirements.

Eclipse

Eclipse for Scout Developers Mars

see Scout/HowTo/5.0/Install_Scout_SDK

m2eclipse

Install m2e: Help > Install New Software... Updatesite-URL: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/mars/

Choose General Purpose Tools: m2e - Maven Integration for Eclipse

Install m2e connectors: Window > Preferences > Maven > Discovery > Open Catalog

choose: Tycho Configurator

Maven

Installation guide: http://maven.apache.org/download.html#Installation

Maven Tycho Integration of existing Plugins

Create new Eclipse Project (used as parent POM)

Create a project called org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent. Create a file pom.xml inside the new project:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd" xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
   xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
 <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
   
 <groupId>org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm</groupId>
 <artifactId>org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent</artifactId>
 <version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
 <packaging>pom</packaging>
 <name>minicrm - parent</name>
</project>

Create eclipse project.png

Generate POMs for existing projects / plug-ins

extraDirs must list all plugin projects.

cd <to org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent package>
 
mvn org.eclipse.tycho:tycho-pomgenerator-plugin:generate-poms -DgroupId=org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm -Dversion=1.0.0-SNAPSHOT -DextraDirs=../org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.client,../org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.server,../org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.shared,../org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.ui.rap,../org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.ui.swing,../org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.ui.swt

Convert every project into a Maven Project:

  • Refresh all projects with F5
  • Convert all projects to maven projects starting with org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent:

Rightclick on the project and choose: Configure > Convert to Maven Project...

Resolve Warnings caused by the previous steps (see Problems-View)

  • Delete every bin directory and fix build.properties files (Cause: The project's output folder was changed from /bin to /target/classes)

Remove bin output build properties.png

  • Delete duplicate Maven Coordinates: (in pom.xml files: delete groupId and version already defined in parent pom)

Duplicate groupId and version.PNG

Extend parent POM configuration

Add Eclipse and RAP platform Repositories (using Maven Profiles) to org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent

<profiles>
  <profile>
    <id>platform-luna</id>
    <activation>
      <activeByDefault>true</activeByDefault>
      <property>
        <name>platform-version-name</name>
        <value>luna</value>
      </property>
    </activation>
    <properties>
      <eclipse.repo.url>http://download.eclipse.org/releases/luna</eclipse.repo.url>
      <rap.repo.url>http://download.eclipse.org/rt/rap/2.3</rap.repo.url>
      <platform.version>[3.8,3.9)</platform.version>
      <tycho.version>0.20.0</tycho.version>
    </properties>
  </profile>
</profiles>
 
<repositories>
  <repository>
    <id>eclipse platform</id>
    <url>${eclipse.repo.url}</url>
    <layout>p2</layout>
  </repository>
  <repository>
    <id>rap platform</id>
    <url>${rap.repo.url}</url>
    <layout>p2</layout>
  </repository>
</repositories>

Replace existing Build settings

Replace the following block in the pom.xml of org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent

<build>
	<plugins>
	<plugin>
		<groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
		<artifactId>tycho-maven-plugin</artifactId>
		<version>0.20.0</version>
		<extensions>true</extensions>
	</plugin>
	</plugins>
</build>

with the following block:

<build>
  <plugins>
    <plugin>
      <groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
      <artifactId>tycho-maven-plugin</artifactId>
      <version>${tycho.version}</version>
      <extensions>true</extensions>
    </plugin>
  </plugins>
 
  <pluginManagement>
    <plugins>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
        <artifactId>target-platform-configuration</artifactId>
        <version>${tycho.version}</version>
        <configuration>
          <filters>
            <!-- work around Equinox bug 348045 -->
            <filter>
              <type>p2-installable-unit</type>
              <id>org.eclipse.equinox.servletbridge.extensionbundle</id>
              <removeAll />
            </filter>
          </filters>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </pluginManagement>
</build>

If you only want to build for a specific platform (e.g. win32) you can add the following configuration to the parent pom:

<build>
...
    <plugin>
      <groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
      <artifactId>target-platform-configuration</artifactId>
      <configuration>
        <environments>
          <environment>
            <os>win32</os>
            <ws>win32</ws>
            <arch>x86</arch>
          </environment>
        </environments>
      </configuration>
    </plugin>
...

Build the parent POM

mvn clean install

Now the build should be successful:

Build Eclipse Scout Swing client application (building an Eclipse Product)

1. Create new Eclipse Project (holding the client Product)

File > New > Project. Enter the name "org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.swing.product"

2. Add / Create Swing client Product and config.ini
  • Copy the config.ini and the minicrm-swing-client.product into the new project with Copy&Paste
  • Important: Tycho only supports *.product file in the project root
  • Important: The *.product file has to contain the attribute 'uid' (correspond to the ID field in the Product Configurator view) and it must be the same as the product.id element in the next step. In this case it's org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.ui.swing.product.
3. Create POM configuration
  • Create a pom.xml file with the following contents:
<project xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd" xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"

        <exclude>artifacts.xml</exclude>
      </excludes>
    </fileSet>
  </fileSets>
</assembly>
4. Convert to a Maven Project: Configure > Convert to Maven Project...
5. Update the parent POM
  • Extend the modules by the new Maven Module.
  • Define the newly used Maven Plugins in pluginManagement in the parent pom.xml file.
<plugin>
  <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
  <artifactId>maven-resources-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>2.5</version>
  <configuration>
    <encoding>UTF-8</encoding>
  </configuration>
</plugin>
 
<plugin>
  <groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
  <artifactId>tycho-p2-director-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>${tycho.version}</version>
</plugin>
6. Build parent POM

Run the following command on the commandline in the directory org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent.

mvn clean install

After successfully building, your directory org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.product should like that:

Structure of swing product.PNG

Build Eclipse Scout Server WAR (building an Eclipse Product)

Create new Eclipse Project (holding the server Product)

File > New > Project Name: org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.server.product

Add / Create server Product

Copy & Paste the config.ini and the minicrm-server.product from the org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.server/products/production folder into the newly created project. IMPORTANT: Note that the uid (or ID in the configuration view) of the *.product file must be the same as in the pom.xml file in the next step. In this case it's org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.server.product

Create POM configuration

Create a pom.xml file in the new project with the following content:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">

        </executions>
      </plugin>
 
 
      <!-- Configure the assembly plugin to build the final server war file -->

  <formats>
    <format>war</format>
  </formats>

      <outputDirectory>/WEB-INF/eclipse</outputDirectory>
      <includes>
        <include>configuration/**</include>
        <include>plugins/**</include>
      </includes>
    </fileSet>
  </fileSets>
</assembly>

Convert Maven project

Convert to a Maven Project: Configure > Convert to Maven Project...

Update the parent POM

  • Extend the modules by the new Maven Module
  • . Add WEB-INF template to match Equinox in a Servlet Container requirements (directory location has to match the referred fileSet in assembly.xml)
  • A running WEB-INF template can be extracted from a Scout SDK exported war file. Details can be found here.

Build parent POM

Run the following command in the org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.parent directory to build the server product.

mvn clean install

Your org.eclipsescout.demo.minicrm.server.product folder should now look like that:

Testing an Eclipse Scout Client/Server Application (using JUnit/Maven Tycho Surefire)

Note.png
TODO
This tutorial is incomplete and needs to be updated


Using Maven Tycho Surefire you can test your Eclipse Scout Application automatically. A sample application is on https://github.com/innovad/scout.autotest.demo. More details tbd.

Plugin/Fragment/Feature Setup

Create the required testing plugins and fragments for your Scout application. You will have to create a plugin and a fragment for each module (client, server, shared) to be tested. We recommend to use the following naming conventions:

  • org.yourapp.client
  • org.yourapp.client.test
    • A plugin holding some support classes (no JUnit tests here)
  • org.yourapp.client.test.fragment
    • A fragment with host org.yourapp.client containing the JUnit tests. The tests will be loaded with the plugin to be tested by the OSGi framework.
  • org.yourapp.server
  • org.yourapp.server.test
    • similar as above
  • org.yourapp.server.test.fragment
    • similar as above
  • org.yourapp.shared
  • org.yourapp.shared.test
    • similar as above
  • org.yourapp.shared.test.fragment
    • similar as above
  • org.yourapp.client.feature
  • org.yourapp.server.feature
  • org.yourapp.server.product
  • org.yourapp.ui.swing.product
  • org.yourapp.ui.swing
  • org.yourapp.parent
  • org.yourapp.target

Testing Server

Testing Shared

Testing Client

Debugging a Test

  • Add the "debugPort" to your pom.xml
<plugin>
	<groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
		<artifactId>tycho-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
		<version>${tycho.version}</version>
		<configuration>
 		      <debugPort>18081</debugPort>
		</configuration>
</plugin>
  • Create a new Debug Configuration in Eclipse of type "Remote Java Application" (localhost:18081)
  • Tycho stops with "Listening for transport dt_socket at address: 18081"
  • At this point, Run your Debug Configuration

Advanced Topics

Support Rayo Look and Feel for Eclipse Scout

Add new P2-Repository with the corresponding Update Site URL

Support JDBC Drivers for Eclipse Scout

Add new P2-Repository with the corresponding Update Site URL

Integrate the JRE into the client zip

Extend the assembly.xml's fileSets definition:

<!-- integrate the JRE into the client zip -->
<fileSet>
  <directory>/path/to/jre</directory>
  <outputDirectory>/${product.finalName}/jre</outputDirectory>
</fileSet>

Bundle client and server together (to support direct client download)
