Installing Caesar v0.3.1 binary release

Important! Please use Eclipse V3.0 Release. We didn't test it for other versions of Eclipse.

Installation from Eclipse Update Site

  • 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/0.3.1/
    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.

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/0.3.1/

  2. Download the files
    • features/org.caesarj.feature_0.3.1.jar
    • plugins/org.caesarj.plugin_0.3.1.jar

  3. Go to your Eclipse directory.

  4. Create the following folders
    • features/org.caesarj.feature_0.3.1/
    • plugins/org.caesarj_0.3.1/

  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 Preferences-> Workbench ->File Associations) and disable "Analyze annotations while typing" under Preferences->Java->Editor->Annotations. These options are available also in CaesarJ Prefences Dialog which can be activated from the toolbar.

For larger projects it is recommended to switch off automated build (under Preferences-> Workbench) and build manually using Ctrl+B shortcut.

Try our examples to test your installation.
