Note: This section is intended for developers who have experience working with Eclipse.
Eclipse is a powerful platform for developing Java
™ applications and because it is set up to work with OSGi plug-ins it can be configured to develop bundles for the Forms Services Platform.
To make this easier, a pre-configured Eclipse sample project is available on the IBM
® Forms Wiki. You can download the sample project and use it as the basis for creating your own bundles, using Eclipse to rename projects, pipes and packages to suit your needs.
The sample project was developed for Eclipse 3.2.2 and Rational
® Application Developer 7.0.
To use the pre-configured Eclipse project to develop your own pipes, refer to the following tasks:
