Zonnon plugin for Eclipse
Plugin includes Zonnon compiler for Rotor/Mono. If you do not need plugin unpack the archive and use command-line compiler from compiler folder. Go to download page to get the compiler.
Please note that Zonnon plugin depends on the following other plugins:
- Intsall Eclipse IDE
Just unpack it. Please use Eclipse 3.0.1 (3.2.1 - recommended) or higher. You will need a 1.4.2 level or higher Java runtime or Java development kit (JDK) installed on your
machine in order to run Eclipse. Get Java runtime.
- The archive ch.ethz.zonnon_x.x.x.zip contains one folder ch.ethz.zonnon_x.x.x
You should unpack this folder into eclipse/plugins folder. So it should be
Zonnon plugin already includes Zonnon Compiler for Rotor/Mono.
- Restart Eclipse.
If one of them is missing the Zonnon plugin will not work.
Please also note that in distribution, Debian-based Ubuntu, Eclipse is located at:
/usr/lib/eclipse. There is a plugins subdirectory located here where all the plugins
are placed that come packaged with Eclipse when it is installed.
These get wiped clean and rewritten when Eclipse is updated. To
avoid this process from wiping away user-installed plugins, like
zonnon, there is a separate location to place them; it is:
In this subdirectory that you can place the zonnon compiler.
- Turn off Project -> Build Automatically (otherwise compiler will be executed after each "save")
- To create new project: File -> New -> Project ...
Zonnon -> Create a new Zonnon project
- To compile: Project -> Build All.
- If there are compile errors use "Problems" view.
- To run the example: Run -> Run...
then select Zonnon Project and click "New" to create a new launch configuration.
