| On the first start of Eclipse you will see a welcome screen. To start working, |
close this screen by clicking the arrow on the upper right corner.
|After starting Eclipse 1), choose File → Import|
|Select General → Existing Projects into Workspace|
| Select the root directory (the location of the PDT sources). |
Afterwards the list of projects will be filled automatically.
Here you should select all projects except
- PDT Tutorial
Click Finish and the projects will be imported to your Eclipse workspace.
Importing means that the files are linked from the workspace, not copied into it.
They remain at the location where you cloned them.
| After importing, Eclipse will automatically compile the projects. |
The progress will be displayed in the lower right corner.
Wait for compilation to finish.
Now you can start modifying the PDT.
| Select any of the PDT projects in the Package Explorer, open its context menu and select |
Run As → Eclipse Application
|Another Eclipse instance will be started, which will run the PDT code from your development workspace but without the graphical views (see blue note above).|
|The new Eclipse instance will access a new workspace (the so called 'runtime workspace') located in the same folder as your development workspace. In the runtime workspace you can create test projects, import your most favourite Prolog code, etc. to test your changes to the PDT.|
When you're satisfied with your changes, please
We'll review your contribution, possibly contact you to discuss it and and let you know when we have integrated it.
As soon as your changes are merged by us into the master brach of the GitHub repository, our integration server will generate a fully functional new release (including the graphical views). You will find it on the "latest" PDT update site.
