Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

Has anyone found where the plugins for this are available? I've been through the WPI site as best I can without much success. I know that NetBeans is the preferred IDE (by WPI), but when I spoke to Brad about a month ago I thought they were still going to support Eclipse (I can live without the wizards).

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

Well it doesn't look like the 2012 version of the plugin is available. At least I haven't been able to find it. The link for the provider is here if you wish to use the one from last year in the meantime or maybe wait for it to get updated.

http://first.wpi.edu/FRC/java/eclipse/update/stable/

If anybody has a link to an updated version, please shoot it this way; I'm in the same boat.

Yeah... we've been focusing on Netbeans and added plugins to create command-based robot projects. We'll post a message later with the status of the eclipse plugins for 2012. I know it's not eclipse, but the Netbeans plugins are pretty nice.

Unfortunately, they are completely different formats between the two IDEs.

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

I agree the NetBeans plugins are very nice - but for various reasons we'd prefer to use Eclipse. I'm not asking WPI to create a parallel set of all the wizards, etc. for generating the new commands-based framework; just the basics of being able to build, deploy, and run an Eclipse robot project with the new library(s). Copy and paste to get the new classes in Eclipse will be fine. Thank you in advance!

No, no, it's OK to ask. We'll probably have a plugin up soon.

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

If you just want to compile in Eclipse, you can have one person get the NetBeans plugin and copy the jar file elsewhere/distribute it to the team. Then your Eclipse project points to that jar. And the Ant script to build in Eclipse like in 2009/2010. Not as simple as a plugin, but should tide you over until it is ready.

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

Brad,
Any update on an ETA for Eclipse plugins? Since we've used Eclipse in the past, that would be the easier path if we know it will be here soon. Just trying to plan. Thanks for all your hard work.

I've been watching checkins... hopefully soon, maybe today or tomorrow.

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

Ryan,

On behalf of everyone (wanting to) use Eclipse for programming FRC - Thank you very much for your efforts ... I can't wait to download the plugins and migrate back to Eclipse.

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

OK, so this sounds like a stupid question, but where is the cRIO image? As I understand it, the plugin is supposed to install the Java image. I have installed the Driver Station, LabView (I loaded LabView also) and Utilities updates.

When I run the cRIO Imaging tool and try to format the controller, I get an error: "No cRIO Images found. Expected here: C:\Users\Developer\sunspotfrcsdk\cRIO_Images" I presume that the Eclipse plugin would create and fill it, but that folder does not exist.

Just FYI, the imaging tool does find the cRIO and also finds the image for LabView, so that part of things appears to work.

Just thinking ahead, I suppose I could install Netbeans to get the image, then just continue to use Eclipse?

Thanks for any help,
Rod

Re: Eclipse IDE for 2012 Java Programming

There is no doubt a way to do it via Eclipse, but I have always installed NetBeans and run that first once just to get the image to flash the cRIO with ... especially since the Eclipse plugin always lags the NetBeans one after kick off.
