Eclipse Rich Client Platform: Designing, Coding, and by Jeff McAffer, Jean-Michel Lemieux

By Jeff McAffer, Jean-Michel Lemieux

This can be my 3rd e-book on Eclipse RCP and it truly is by means of a ways the easiest. I want I had all started right here. The ebook is specified by an instructional model that takes you step by step during the technique of making a real-world program. It has loads of useful recommendation comparable to how you can combine third-party libraries, and while to exploit the API as opposed to whilst to exploit the declarative syntax. This used to be an extremely very important suggestion for the reason that so much RCP purposes are doing simply tha -- placing a UI on best of a provider. the opposite books that I learn both supplied too little info or learn like a reference booklet.

My suggestion for a beginner on RCP is first of all this ebook, after which increase as important with extra books on SWT,JFace, OSGI, or different subject matters corresponding to GEF as valuable.

Nonetheless, the example shows how the major parts of the Eclipse RCP 43 fit together. 3. Running and Debugging By this point, you have set up a development environment and target platform, defined a simple Hyperbola application, and run it at least once. You have also seen how applications, perspectives, and advisors fit together to form a system. You are now ready to start putting some real function into Hyperbola. Before doing that, it is worth spending a bit of time talking about how to run and debug Eclipse applications effectively.

From the PDE plug-in editor, you can discover the extension-to-extension point interconnections, navigate to the classes defined in various extensions, and browse extension point documentation. Tip In the Plug-ins view, select all plug-ins and use the Add to Java Search context menu entry to add all known plug-ins to the Java search scope. This is helpful because Java search only looks in projects in the workspace and their dependent projects. , Ctrl+Shift+T). By adding all plug-ins in your target platform to the search, you can more easily navigate example code and classes that you do not reference from your projects.

You can refine this by using Step Into Selection (Ctrl+F5) in the editor's context menu. Step Over (F6)The next method call. This is useful for quickly getting around in the execution. Use step over until you start seeing things going wrong and then look in more detail. Step to Return (F7)Of the current method. As the name implies, use this function when you just want to get to the end of the method. Drop to FrameDrop all stack frames above the selected frame. Execution is reset to the beginning of the method in the current frame.
