EATS Infrastructure Prototype Code Published

Submitted by joe.vansteen on Tue, 10/16/2012 - 16:44

My previous blog post, titled EATS Development Journal, provided a forward view of EATS development based on the Eclipse framework. This post announces the publication of the baseline code for that development effort. It provides the first in a series of posts which examine the code as a model for the infrastructure layer of the tool suite architecture.

EATS Target Platform Definition


By default the Eclipse development workbench will target a version of itself as the execution environment for developed systems. Some of the problems with this include:

  • projecting execution to occur on the same platform as development (e.g., Windows, Mac, Linux)
  • unnecessary Inclusion of developer tools in the execution environment
  • difficulty in managing plug-in and related updates to the developed product

The Eclipse solution to this problem is the creation of a target platform specification for the developed product.

Eclipse Configuration


For what we want to achieve, we are sometimes forced to work with back-leveled environments. To enable management of this we have adopted a dual (or multi-) path tracking of our development environment.

Eclipse Kepler Environment


This is the configuration documentation for the EATS Eclipse development environment based on Eclipse project Kepler release levels. It was initially created as a Juno release level environment when we targeted EATS to be an Eclipse 4 application. It corresponds to EATS v4.2. It was migrated from Juno to Kepler via an update-in-place.

Eclipse Release Synchronization

The initial objective is to test uDig for use as both a workbench application for geospatial mapping and for use as a geospatial sub-component of an EATS workstation. The desire for EATS is to be able to configure a reasonably "up-to-date" Eclipse workbench application. Currently this would be a Kepler version workstation. The desire is to be able to evolve this workstation, over time, on a regular basis with new, current Eclipse project components.
