Contributing to JSDT #5: Launching the Product
I’ll continue my instructions regarding how to set up JSDT development infrastructure.
- I set up the build target
- I checked out the code
- I updated to the latest debug plugins to resolve compilation issues.
- I launched the unit tests
Now run the product
When I work on Eclipse products, we typically provide a default launch config per product. Although the nightly build is the ultimate authority of what encompasses the product, these version-controlled launch files provide a good point of comparison developer to developer.
I could not find a public JSDT .launch file under CVS control.
So I looked at the installed JSDT product to create my own. It’s here if you would like to download it.
Just drop it into an active project in your Eclipse workspace, refresh the project, open ‘Run Configurations” and you should see a “jsdt” run config.
You may want to tweak it a bit and verify that the set of selected plugins is correct.
Then hit Run to see the JSDT.
Disclaimer: I’m not on the JSDT team, so this may not be exactly how they do it. But it’s what I’ve done to get it working.
