This section provides information on installing samples using Eclipse instead of the RSDP.
The Lotus® Expeditor Toolkit provides archive files, which contain pre-built sample projects.
Samples that contain portlets require the use of a Rational® Software Delivery Platform (RSDP) with the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit installed. These projects might import successfully in an Eclipse with Web Tools Platform (WTP) environment, but full function, including Eclipse "Run on Server" launch capabilities, are not available.
To import one or more samples, follow these basic steps:
- Select File > Import….
- From the Import Wizard, select General > Existing Projects into Workspace and then click Next.
- Select the Select archive file radio button and type the name of the specified jar file (as shown in the "Setup instructions" topic accompanying each sample description topic in the Samples section). Alternately, click Browse to select a jar from the archive directory in one of the following directories:
com.ibm.rcp.tools.samplesgallery and com.ibm.rcp.tools.samplesgallery2
Contain desktop samples, including some samples that can be run on both desktops and devices.com.ibm.rcp.tools.device.samplesgallery
Contains samples that you can run on a device only.
- Follow any additional instructions provided in the "Setup instructions" topic for the samples.
- The dialog shows the projects present in the archive jar. Select Finish to install the projects into your workspace.
Specific instructions for each sample is provided in the following sections.
