Eclipse Launching Framework Eclipse Launching Framework Presentation Transcript

  • Eclipse Launching Framework
    • brief introduction and prototype example
    [email_address] 2010.08
  • 1. Introduction What is Launching? debug.core LaunchConfigurationTypes LaunchConfiguration debug.ui LaunchConfigurationDialog TabGroup Shortcuts 2. Prototype Demo (Run)
  • 1. Introduction
  • What is Launching? Launching - running or debugging a program from within Eclipse Launcher - a set of Java classes that live in an Eclipse plug-in that performs launching - launcher for Java application, JUnit test suites, ... - What for YOUR application? Launching Framework - extension mechanism - Separating model and UI - debug.core - debug.ui
  • debug.core: Launching Framework’s model LaunchConfigurationTypes - cookie cutters - how to launch certain types of launch - Java Application LaunchConfigurations - cookie made from cutters - information necessary to perform a launch - it’s just key/value pair - boolean, int, Map, List, String - main class, JRE, VM arguments, ...
  • LaunchConfigurationTypes Extension point: org.eclipse.debug.core.launchConfigurationTypes Interface: org.eclipse.debug.core.model.ILaunchConfigurationDelegate Method: launch(ILaunchConfiguration configuration, ...) <extension point=&quot;org.eclipse.debug.core.launchConfigurationTypes&quot;> <launchConfigurationType delegate=&quot;test.launch.LaunchConfigurationDelegate&quot; delegateName=&quot;test.launch.LaunchConfigurationDelegate&quot; id=&quot;test.launch.launchConfigurationType&quot; modes=&quot;debug,run&quot; name=&quot;Test Launcher&quot;> </launchConfigurationType> </extension>
  • debug.ui: Launching Framework’s UI LaunchConfigurationDialog Icon TabGroup - utilize “Jigloo” Shortcuts - ‘Run As’ - no Dialog - create, set to default values and launch in a click - launch(ISelection selection, ...) - launch(IEditorPart editor, ...)
  • Icon Extension point: org.eclipse.debug. ui.launchConfigurationTypeImages <extension point=&quot;org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchConfigurationTypeImages&quot;> <launchConfigurationTypeImage configTypeID=&quot;test.launch.launchConfigurationType&quot; icon=&quot;res/emu.png&quot; id=&quot;test.launch.launchConfigurationIcon&quot;> </launchConfigurationTypeImage> </extension>
  • TabGroup (1) Extension point: org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchConfigurationTabGroups Interface: org.eclipse.debug.ui.ILaunchConfigurationTabGroup Method: createTabs(ILaunchConfigurationDialog dialog, ...) <extension point=&quot;org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchConfigurationTabGroups&quot;> <launchConfigurationTabGroup class=&quot;test.launch.LaunchTabGroup&quot; id=&quot;test.launch..LaunchTabGroup&quot; type=&quot;test.launch.launchConfigurationType&quot;> </launchConfigurationTabGroup> </extension>
  • TabGroup (2) Steps: 1. write your own tab - must implement ILaunchConfigurationTab - write UI code in createControl() // Jigloo comes in! - value copying methods - setDefaults() ; called when a new config is created - performApply() ; read from GUI - initializeFrom() ; read from config 2. write createTabs() - construct an array of ILaunchConfigurationTab - setTabs() Notice: - Extend AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab - Include [common] tab
  • Time to launch Steps: 1. write your own launcher - must implement ILaunchConfigurationDelegate - write code in launch() - ILaunchConfiguration ; config - mode ; Run or Debug - ILaunch ; DebugTarget/Process - IProgressMonitor ; monitor - Construct a command line and pass it to Runtime.exec() - Create debug targets/processes and add to the ILaunch object Notice: - Extend LaunchConfigurationDelegate - Check monitor ex.)) user cancelled
  • Advanced concepts Launch Group - “category” - built-in: Run, Debug, External Tools Comparator
  • 2. Prototype Demo (Run)
  • Steps to run Edit MANIFEST.MF Require-Bundle : org.eclipse.ui, org.eclipse.core.runtime, org.eclipse.debug.core;bundle-version=&quot;3.5.1&quot;, org.eclipse.debug.ui;bundle-version=&quot;3.5.2&quot;, org.eclipse.jdt.launching;bundle-version=&quot;3.5.1“ org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui;bundle-version=&quot;3.4.1&quot; Run Eclipse Application - Create project - Choose [Run Configurations...]
