Using Eclipse

Using Eclipse

Documentation 10_MR040_WindchillCustomizationGuide.pdf on page 51 it shows project cust_Windchill_src in Eclipse. In order to load that project in you must follow directions from ant -f bin/tools.xml eclipse_project.help I followed these directions. Step 1) Run the eclipse_project task is too vague. I can get the cust_Windchill_src folder into the project window of Eclipse, but I have no supporting libraries or src folders. Can anyone explain what "run the eclipse_project task" actually means? I put in Filesync, but I am not sure it is working. Thanks.

Step 1) Run the eclipse_project task.


this implies running the ant command as below -

C:\ptc\Windchill_10.0\Windchill>ant -f bin/tools.xml eclipse_project


It is basically creating a workspace and placing .classpath and .project filesin this workspace.

Further as the eclipse_project.help says, the newly created workspace and projects are used.

Hope this helps.

Hi  Reetakota,

Steps:

1. Install JRE/JDK and Eclipse.

2. Run the commands: ant -f bin/tools.xml eclipse_project.help

                                                 ant -f bin/tools.xml eclipse_project

You will find the cust_Windchill_src folder in the  Eclipse Workspace Directory.

If you go with by default options, it will be created under the <Windchill>\eclipse\cust_Windchill_src folder

Attached is a snapshot, FYI.

It is the second Ant call that is crucial. That line is not present on page 56 of the current 11_F000 version of the guide.

Yes, it is!

That's what creates the Project folder, FYIP.
