This tutorial will guide you through the usage of Cultivate user interface. In the following the project “JHotDraw” will be used as the code base.
Prerequisites: You should have installed Cultivate in your Eclipse.
At first the JTransformer Nature must be assigned to the project you are working on (here: JHotDraw). Right click the JHotDraw project in the Package Explorer of Eclipse. Select the menu entry Assign JTransformer Factbase in the sub-menu Configure in the context menu.
After assigning the JTransformer Nature, in the sub-menu Configure the option Convert to Cultivate Project will be available. Use this menu to assign the Cultivate Nature. The conversion of the project also enables a new sub-menu Cultivate Tools. This sub-menu provides the functionality to remove the nature and is the place were we will add possible future operations on the project.
|Converting your project into a cultivate project|
Cultivate adds a basic perspective to Eclipse. This can be opened anytime by using the standard Eclipse Open Perspective menu.
|Opening the cultivate perspective|
Use the perspective if you want to explore your project in depth, especially if you are interested in structures.
