After the Lotus® Expeditor Toolkit installation, users may change the Client Services default values in one of two places.
The current configuration settings for the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit are displayed in the Test Environment section of the preferences. These values were selected using the configuration dialog for the toolkit, and can be accessed by selecting Window > Preferences > Client Services
. Selecting Configure
on this preference page allows you to change your Lotus Expeditor Toolkit configuration. The dialog initially populates with the current settings, and the Restore Defaults
button can be used to reset the contents of the dialog to the default values shipped with Lotus Expeditor Toolkit.
The Auto-Configuration Preference
option can also be selected on this page. This preference option controls when the configuration dialog for the toolkit is displayed. It can be displayed each time a workspace opens, the first time a workspace opens, or not at all.
Refer to the following tables for a description of the options and their default values of the resulting dialog screens:
Table 1. Auto-Management Preferences
Default Target Selection
|Search for dependencies automatically upon resource changes ||Select this option to enable the tools to search for package dependencies whenever the user modifies source files. When this option is deselected, the tooling will not search for any unresolved or unused dependencies in your project.||Selected |
|Attempt to automatically resolve Manifest dependencies||Select this option to enable the tools to automatically manage the package dependency information in the manifest file. Package dependencies in your project’s Java code will automatically be reflected through proper updates to the manifest file. When this option is deselected, package dependencies that are not properly reflected in the manifest are flagged with problem markers, along with quick fixes to resolve the problems. ||Selected |
|Give preference to Require-Bundle ||Require-Bundle will be used to automatically resolve a package dependency in cases where either Require-Bundle or Import-Package can be used. ||Not selected|
|Give preference to Import-Package||Import-Package will be used to automatically resolve a package dependency in cases where either Require-Bundle or Import-Package can be used.||Selected by default for projects that are not contributing to the Rich Client Platform.|
Use the drop-down list to choose the default Target Definition. This means that when creating a new Client Services project or a new Client Services launch configuration, the default Target Definition selection will be obtained from this setting.
Select the Targets to be available for development Selection
If the Targets are selected, they will be available in the development environment during a new Client Services project creation or a new Client Services launch configuration. The unselected targets will not be shown in the development environment. The default is all Targets selected.
