Lotus® Expeditor Toolkit allows you to migrate your Client Services projects from earlier 6.x versions using Eclipse.
Client Services Web and Portlet projects require that the migration take place in one of the supported Rational® platforms (either RAD or RSA). Migration can be accomplished using either of the following methods:
- A Workspace can be migrated by selecting it during the startup of Eclipse, where the toolkit detects and automatically converts all projects in the Workspace. Select Yes, when you are prompted to set the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit configuration. This modifies your projects without any user interaction. If you would like to preserve your project format and data, you should back up the workspace prior to opening the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit on the folder.
- Projects can be migrated using the Import function in Eclipse. One example of performing an Import is selecting File > Import > Existing Projects into Workspace. From here you can chose either a "root" directory or an archive file that contains the projects.
During migration, the class path is updated to match current Target Definitions, and the manifest are updated to match current runtime requirements. The toolkit updates the MANIFEST.MF
file if one exists, creating a backup called MANIFEST.MF.BAK
. It also sets the Java Build Path, the JRE, and Target Definition to default values.
