Configure Eclipse 3.5 for Notes 8.5.2

As for previous versions I maintain a document outlining how to configure a vanilla Eclipse install to work with Lotus Notes for Java extension development (with install_id and rcp.base). I have made the first version for Notes 8.5.2 as of code drop 5 so please see Configure Eclipse 3.5 for Notes 8.5.2 if this is of use to you.

Please Lotus that Notes 8.5.2 is in beta and there are no guarantees that the features described here will be in the final product that IBM ships.

Hi Mikkel,

I've never used Aptana so unfortunately no.

Re: Configure Eclipse 3.5 for Notes 8.5.2

Thanks for this.  The install_id and rcp.base_version supplied didn't work as I run a newer build but in the end I found the correct values in:

C:\notes\data\workspace\.config\rcp_install.properties

extracted from the following two lines:

rcp.install.id=1272560767625

rcp.base.location=${rcp.home}/rcp/eclipse/plugins/com.ibm.rcp.base_6.2.2.20100329-1644

Great - good to hear. I normally update the documents as I get access to new builds but it's hard to keep up on internal builds :-)

Do you have the details for Notes 8.5.3

Thanks,

Re: Configure Eclipse 3.5 for Notes 8.5.2

It depends what code drop you are running. You need to find out the install_id and rcp.base_version values from your actual installation. The values for CD5 are: install_id = 1316440839688 rcp.base_version = 6.2.3.20110525-1821 You can find the values in a few ways but I look in: NOTES_DIR\data\workspace\.config\rcpinstall.properties (see my previous comment for details)

Re: Configure Eclipse 3.5 for Notes 8.5.2

Colin is right but for completeness sake the required data is
install_id=131779316645
rcp.base-version=6.2.3.20110915-1350

I also created a page with the info - <a href="http://lekkimworld.com/pages/eclipse35_notes853.html">Configure Eclipse 3.5 for Notes 8.5.3</a>.
