Setting up Eclipse
This chapter provides a step-by-step tutorial on how to configure Eclipse IDE to be used for Jahia development, assuming that all the prerequisites are already fulfilled.
- Download and install Eclipse IDE. We recommend the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers package. Note that it can be required to adjust the Eclipse vmargs (eclipse.ini file) to increase the amount of dedicated memory (e.g. "-XX:PermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=384m -Xms384m -Xmx1024m")
- In case you will checkout or manage Jahia source code in SVN, please, install the Subclipse plugin
Subclipse is an Eclipse Team Provider plug-in providing support for Subversion within the Eclipse IDE.
- Install the m2eclipse plugin that provides comprehensive Maven integration for Eclipse. Please, note that due to an issue in the latest released version of the plugin 0.12 (MNGECLIPSE-2757) you should install the 0.10.x version of the plugin:
Optionally installing the Maven Integration for WTP, Maven SCM Integration and Maven SCM handler for Subclipse from m2clipse extras package.
The Eclipse setup it done. You can continue with the creating a new Jahia Web Poject.
