Re: Re: [equinox-dev] Where to start framework?


Robert,
Get the org.eclipse.equinox.launcher bundle and its fragments from the eclipse-rcp download.

Tom, maybe we should be adding the launcher bundles to the equinox download zip?

Re:  Re: [equinox-dev] Where to start framework?






hi, thanks for your reply.

it seems that 3.3m5  *doesn't*  have /plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_xxx.jar

i downloaded the win32 launcher for this version, thinking that maybe the launcher jar was there, but it does not contain either startup.jar nor launcher.jar.  so, i get "The eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companioin shared library."

i looked on the individual bundle jars available for dl and i don't see the launcher there either.  i will look at other releases but probably will try dling and compiling the source for that bundle myself.  

i'd appreciate any advice.

thanks.

The quickstart guide needs to be updated for 3.3 M5.  You should use the org.eclipse.equinox.launcher to launch the framework in this case.  The following directory structure should work:


c:/eclipse/
               /configuration/config.ini

                /plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_xxx.jar

                /plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_xxx.jar

                /plugins/org.eclipse.update.configurator_xxx.jar

                /plugins/ ...


Then you should be able to launch with:


java -jar plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_xxx.jar -console -configuration configuration


You could also get the eclipse.exe from M5 and put that in the eclipse folder and launch using that:


eclipse -console -configuration configuration

[equinox-dev] Where to start framework?







Hello,

I am new to equinox and started with the quickstart guide on eclipse-equinox-SDK-3.3M5.zip.  i tried the command:

java -jar org.eclipse.osgi_xxx.jar -console but added the plugins/ suffix to the jar file and it ran fine.

Then I tried using common and org.eclipse.update.configurator (again, from an 3.3M5 eclipse zip) by adding the osgi.bundle lines in the quickstart and puttin the org.eclipse.update.configurator_xxx.jar into the plugins dir.  i put the config.ini file into configuration.  my directory now looks like this:

c:/eclipse/
               /plugins
               /configuration/config.ini

i am in c:/eclipse and i started the framework like this:

java -jar plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_xx.jar -console -configuration configuration

it starts up and the 3 bundles (framework, common, configurator) are active but nothing else. and when i try the "bundles" command i don't see the additional bundles (logging, etc) installed.  i checked the log and i see this entry:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.update.configurator 2007-02-23 00:14:50.703
!MESSAGE C:\eclipse\plugins\plugins is not a valid plugins directory.

in the quickstart it says that the configurator will discver and install bundes in the plugins dir beside the equinox jar.    so, besides cding into the plugins dir, is there another way to run from the base dir and have it discover the plugins dir from there?  

thanks in advance for your help.
