Installing CaesarJ v0.8.7 binary release

Important! This version was tested on Eclipse 3.2.1. For Eclipse 3.1.x you can use CaesarJ version v0.8.5. In any case, please, use JVM 1.5.x.

Installation from Eclipse Update Site

  • Download and install Eclipse 3.2.1

  • Start Eclipse, and from the Help menu choose "Find and Install...".

  • Select "Search for new features to install." and click on "Next >"

  • In the "Install" view that opens, click on "New Remote Site..." button.

  • In the dialog that appears enter a name, "CaesarJ Update Site", and the URL: http://caesarj.org/updatesite/0.8.7/
    Click Finish.

  • Select the CaesarJ Update Site node that appears and click on "Next >".

  • Select the "org.caesarj.feature" node and click on "Next >".

  • Step through the installation dialog that appears to complete the installation.

You can also see installation demo.

Note: If you are behind a proxy server, use the install/update preferences page (under Help-> Preferences) to configure your proxy settings.

Installation by Hand

If update site doesn't work for you, the plugins can be installed by hand.

  1. Open in your browser http://caesarj.org/updatesite/0.8.7/

  2. Download the files
    • features/org.caesarj.feature_0.8.7.jar
    • plugins/org.caesarj.plugin_0.8.7.jar

  3. Go to your Eclipse directory.

  4. Create the following folders
    • features/org.caesarj.feature_0.8.7/
    • plugins/org.caesarj_0.8.7/

  5. Unzip the content of jar files into the created directories

After Installation

After installing the Caesar plug-in, please
  • make the Caesar editor your default editor for the .java file extension (under Window->Preferences->CaesarJ)
  • disable "Analyze annotations while typing"
(under Window->Preferences->CaesarJ)

A dialog with these preferences will be displayed automatically, when you switch to CaesarJ Perspective first time.

For larger projects it is recommended to switch off automated build (under Preferences->Workbench) and build manually using Ctrl+B shortcut. For better performance start Eclipse with more memory.
