This setup was tested on asl 6-cluster (asl73x) with using eclipse-mars

In the pom.xml of the project-base directory, select your eclipse platform:


Currently profiles for eclipse-mars and eclipse-neon are available. Neon is installed on the CentOS 7 cluster (asl74x), Mars on the SLC6 cluster ( asl73x)

Required Eclipse Plugins in order to build the project

Help --> Install new Software

Build the Project

  • At GSI the project grabs all relevent jars via maven:
  • There are two possible ways to build the plugin
    • Via eclipse ( you need to setup the Maven-GSI preferences )
      • Configure your GSI Maven Artifact Repo (only do the steps in "Configuring the Maven instance used in Eclipse" ... everything else is not needed )
      • It should be sufficient to select "Project --> Build Project" in eclipse
    • Via command-line
      • Open a console and go to the main folder "silecs-eclipse-plugin"
      • run mvn install
    • Check if there are any errors (red markers) on the files/folders of the project ... if so, try to fix the problems or call the Silecs-Support

Known bugs

  • For eclipse-neon I got many erros in the Manifest like "Bundle 'org.eclipse.core.runtime' cannot be resolved". The solution was: I had to set the eclipse-target-platform in "Window-->Preferences-->Target Platform --> Add --> Default" and check the checkbox for it.
