Installing the OTDThints and background on installing/updating.
The OTDT is provided as a set of features installable from the following update sites:
This is what you will find on the update site:
|OTDT 1.3.x based on Eclipse 3.5||[recommended]
Category comprising all features of the OTDT
|Object Teams Development Tooling||
This umbrella feature includes the OTDT and the "OTDT Core Patch Feature" (not shown)
Installing this feature enables the Eclipse platform to host plugins written in OT/J.
- File permissions
- It is recommended to install the OTDT from an account that has write permissions in the Eclipse installation area.
If you are concerned about permissions, you might want to install the "OTDT Core Patch Feature" from a privileged account (needs deselecting "Group items by category") and let regular users add the above features on top of that under their own account. (→ see also Eclipse bug 281510 and ticket 273).
- Installing into a product
- If you intend to install the OTDT into an IBM Rational SDP or other Eclipse-based product, please refer to these special instructions.
OT/J command line compilerhints on using the command line compiler.
Place this jar file (approx. 2.5MB) into a location of your choice:
- ecotj-1.3.3.jar — all platforms
- Known issues
- Should you encounter problems with installing or launching the OTDT, you may want to consult the wiki page on trouble shooting.
- Notes on compatibility
The OTDT-feature replaces
the Eclipse Java compiler with the OT/J compiler,
which is in fact a modified version of Eclipse's Java compiler.
Find out about the compatibility to standard Java.
- Suggested memory setting
In order to avoid problems with low memory, we advise you to adjust the heap size in
- Source code access
- Fetch or browse the Source Code via anonymous subversion access.
- The OTDT is build on top of the 3.5 release of Eclipse ("Galileo")
- For the OTDT this is the x th release within the 1.3 stream.
- The adapted JDT core plug-in contained in the OTDT is tagged with a version number where the first three parts match that version of the original JDT core from which the OTDT is derived (here "3.5.2"), while the version qualifier contains a condensed form of the OTDT version (here "r133"). This ensures that the framework accepts the OT-version of the JDT core as an upgrade over the original.

- Version 1.2.x based on Eclipse 3.4.y is available here
Version 1.1.x based on Eclipse 3.3.y is available here
