just read on Planet Eclipse, that JBoss Tools 3.1.M2 now supports P2 🙂
Did a quick and dirty test if I can install Drools in my Galileo Eclipse 3.5 SDK on OSX Cocoa 64-bit:
Opened jBoss Tools Download Site: https://www.jboss.org/tools/download/dev.html
Please select the first entry, the P2 Repo for all platforms and download.
Don’t unzip it.
From your Eclipse SDK installation Install new Software, add your downloaded archive file:
then search and select Drools:
Install and restart Eclipse – P2 handles all dependencies.
Here are the Drools Views 🙂
Open Preferences – Drools and create a new Drools 5.0 Runtime.
Create a New Drools Project with Examples:
Test some Editors and Views and Run the Examples.
Hint: To run the Examples add the org.eclipse.jdt.core to the classpath of your project.
Thanks to P2 and thanks to JBoss itsw now very easy to install and update Drools into Eclipse.
BTW: you’ll here more about Drools as Rule Engine in my OSGI Enterprise Application in some weeks.
