# Using Eclipse

### Presentation

Eclipse is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). It intends to facilitate the developer's work with integrated tools. Interesting features are:

• a powerful editor with completion and refactoring capabilities
• version repository access (CVS, SVN)
• debugging tools / profiling
• test framework

You don't need to use Eclipse to integrate your model in Capsis. Eclipse IDE has very advanced functionalities and can be a bit complex for occasional programmers. If you are not sure that Eclipse is for you, you can still use your own editor (like Notepad++, TextPad or SciTE), see: using textpad scite.

We recommend to use the last version of Eclipse : 2018-12

### Build Capsis

• Capsis4 will be imported as a java project. Eclipse will manage compilation.
• It is not necessary to edit the build path since configuration files are already under version control
• If you need to customize compilation process
• go in the project properties.
• ensure that source folders on build path and default output folder are set to capsis4/bin
• ensure that all .jar are in the build path by using the button Add jars

### Run Capsis

• Click on the Run Button.
• You can add a particular configuration
• Run → Run configuration
• Select Java Application
• New launch configuration
• Specify the main class (here capsis.app.Starter)

### Troubleshooting

• If you have to press twice the run button before Capsis really starts then replace the file capsis4/.project by the following one :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<projectDescription>
<name>capsis4</name>
<comment></comment>
<projects>
</projects>
<buildSpec>
<buildCommand>
<name>org.eclipse.jdt.core.javabuilder</name>
<arguments>
</arguments>
</buildCommand>
</buildSpec>
<natures>
<nature>org.eclipse.jdt.core.javanature</nature>
</natures>
</projectDescription>
• If the visu 3D do not work when you launch capsis with Eclipse under Windows, then add the path of the corresponding nativewindow_jvm.dll among your system variables. For example, for a windows 64 : /capsis4/ext/windows64/nativewindow_jvm.dll (does not work with recent version of eclipse)
