pde + target

Here you’ll find my Blog Series around PDE and Target Platform.

Since 2009, June-24 Eclipse 3.5 Galileo is out:


As part of the Galileo Blogathon here are my reviews – I tried to describe some easy-to-follow stories for Newcomers, but hopefully there’ll be also some new things for the experts.

TargetPlatform vs IDE (Eclipse Galileo Review)

  1. whats your Target ? (IDE vs Target Platform)
  2. Install Plug-ins into your IDE (Download, Install SDK, Install Plug-ins)
  3. Manage Plug-ins in Eclipse IDE (add 3rdParty, Update, Uninstall, Revert)
  4. Define a (simple) Target Platform (only one project, only from one location)
  5. Define a (complex) Target Platform (some projects, different locations, 3rdParty)
  6. Manage Bundles (Plug-ins) in Eclipse Target Platform (select /deselect Plug-ins, Reload, Update)
  7. Cool Views to control Bundles (Plug-ins) defining your IDE (Overview, Views -> IDE-Plug-ins vs Target Platform – Plug-ins, IDE Plug-ins – Views in detail)
  8. Cool Views to control Bundles (Plug-ins) defining a Target Platform (Target Platform – Plug-ins – Views in detail)
  9. TroubleShooting (Cycles, Use-Clauses, Duplicates, SourceCode Bundles)
  10. “Pseudo Runtime” – Preview of SWTDesigner from IDE
  11. TargetPlatform – “only” – Plug-ins: inside IDE ? (RAP, Riena, redView, …)
  12. IDE + Target Platform “on the bleeding edge” (Experiences from 3.5 stream)
  13. IDE and Target Platform in Eclipse 3.5 (Summary, Tips, ..)
