Questions

Workspace should go in Data. Definitely not Documents.
151 MB download and yet 2.3 MB installed? Blum

John's already got this done, but is still waiting on permission from Sun to bundle Java as Java Portable before he puts up a whole slew of Java apps. In consequence, at the moment Java apps are not really welcome for real use, as Java support is mostly unofficial.

Which Eclipse package did you use for this?

What do you do about Java support? Used the code from the OpenOffice.org Portable launcher, or do you just depend on a local installation of Java?

Oh yeah, dates (e.g. in Release Notes) should be YY-MM-DD, i.e. DT1 release date is 09-19-02.

For the John's already got this done thing...

http://patrickpatience.com/nascent-project/portableapps/irc/logs/?t=2009...

Um.. I used the original Eclipse... so... Eclipse Classic.

As for the Java support, I'm going to follow what the guy did here. Making it point to the "Common Files" directory in "PortableApps". For my purposes, I don't even need java.

OK

John having dropped Eclipse Portable is something new. Several times he has said here and on IRC that he's done it etc.

Eclipse comes in various flavours, I was just wanting to know which it was you'd used. Thanks for telling me.

About Java support, fine, I was just checking. Just a harmless suggestion is to base your code on the OpenOffice.org Poratble Java code. Your own should be fine though.

Thanks for vindicating yourself on all counts Smile

Thank you.

Thank you Chris.

Now that you mention it, I should put a 2 folders valid for java, like OOoP. I forgot all about OOo dependence of java.

I promise to put in all the time I can on this Project.

I currently face one problem.

Eclipse for some dumb reason requires this.

RECENT_WORKSPACES=J:\\PortableApps\\EclipsePortable (I don't know why the value for the current workspace is RECENT_WORKSPACES, cause it's not recent.)

Two \\'s instead of one.

If I do $EXEDIR that won't work. So until I find a solution, EclipsePortable has to be in the PortableApps directory.

StrRep

Use StrRep.nsh for this.

Replace \ with something NOT including \, then that with \\ (to avoid recursion problems)

StrRep.nsh is included in most launchers (used in conjunction with ReplaceInFile.nsh for updating drive letters in files)

Example usage:

${StrReplace} $0 "\" "::" $EXEDIR
${StrReplace} $0 "::" "\\" $0

That aught to do it.

$0

The first argument. I then just on the second line put it in as $0 and back out as $0 - memory economy, that's all.

WordReplace

May I suggest WordReplace? It's a NSIS function, not a custom one. The syntax is explained in the NSIS help.
Example usage:

${WordReplace} $EXEDIR "\" "§§" "+" $0
${WordReplace} $0 "§§" "\\" "+" $OUTPUT
Chris Morgan:StrRep.nsh is included in most launchers (used in conjunction with ReplaceInFile.nsh for updating drive letters in files)

Old launchers use StrRep.nsh in conjunction with ReplaceInFile.nsh, new launchers use ReplaceInFileWithTextReplace.nsh.
@Chris: You love custom functions, don't you? Blum

::, not §§

btw, "::" is going to be better than "§§" as an intermediate step, as it's possible to include § in the filename, but not : (reserved for the drive level, which is a single :).

I'd just forgotten about the newer ReplaceInFileWithTextReplace.nsh for the time, that's all.

Well,

it's possible to include § in the filename/pathname, but §§ is most unlikely.
On the other hand "::" causes issues:

;say $EXEDIR="X:\PortableApps\ExamplePortable"
${WordReplace} $EXEDIR "\" "::" "+" $0
;$0="X:::PortableApps::ExamplePortable"
${WordReplace} $0 "::" "\\" "+" $OUTPUT
;$OUTPUT="X\\:PortableApps\\ExamplePortable"  -->BUG

"§§" was just an example, so use "???" or whatever you want for the intermediate step.
"::" in no case, IMHO Wink

Whoops...

Oh, that's what happens when you just provide some code without testing it...
?, and | are also non-allowed characters, so you could replace \ with one of them and then that one with \\.

OK, gluxon, I reckon go with the line

!insertmacro WordReplace

in the header (in the includes section), and then use the following body code:

${WordReplace} $EXEDIR "\" "|" "+" $0
${WordReplace} $0 "|" "\\" "+" $OUTPUT

where $OUTPUT can be $0 or whatever, which you then use to house the recent workspaces variable.

Bart.S: "most unlikely" or not, it's still a "potential use case" and so should be supported if it's not too hard which it isn't Wink Any more bugs to find with it?

Alright, the "potential use case" should be supported, even if PortableApps.com only supports the default paths "X:\PortableApps\ExamplePortable" Blum

The header (the include section) should contain the lines:

!include WordFunc.nsh
!insertmacro WordReplace

Btw: You could look at my FreeMat Portable launcher. It uses the WordReplace function. (Sorry for this ad ;))

The 2 \\ is because \ is an escape character for windows. So, to make windows see it, you have to due \\.

I forgot to rename the installer when I uploaded it.

Anyway, I'm still trying to resolve that issue with the WordReplace, I've almost got it covered, so I don't recommend downloading it just yet.

Sure Java is installed?

I'm still trying to find a way to make Eclipse Portable look for Java in the [x]:\PortableApps\Common Files\Java" Folder, and the [x]:\PortableApps\EclipsePortable\App\Java.

But by default, Eclipse searches "C:\Program Files\Java" And "[x]:\PortableApps\EclipsePortable\App\Eclipse\JDK"

And what version of Windows are you using?

Look at OpenOffice.org Portable

You need to use the ${GetParent} macro. The best way of getting such code in, though, is to just copy it from OpenOffice.org Portable - look at Other\Source\OpenOfficePortable.nsi, about lines 330-350, maybe a bit more for context Smile

Okay... I think Eclipse Portable is ready for Pre-Release. Could 1 of the 10 people in the Dev Group (or whatever its called) tell me what I have to do for this app to become in the Pre-Release category? You know... like find some bugs in my code that I should fix, or something like that?

Java :-(

Unfortunately, Sun has not been responding to John about us having Java Portable. Until this happens, I don't believe that we're ready to have any Java apps at all official. However, once we can (if Sad ), I reckon that Eclipse will be one of the first.

I was thinking to just go with the "[X]:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java" thing until things are cleared up with Sun and Java Portable.

If John's already contacted Sun twice then I don't think a third or fourth time will get Sun to even write back.

Besides, just because Sun doesn't reply to John shouldn't mean we should stop the development of Java apps.

Aggreed?

No

The problem is with the user. We've got to be able to have it friendly to set up.

Before we go any further with this discussion, I think that we need John T. Haller to comment on the issue: he's in charge.

Edit: Java Portable would still be going in CommonFiles\Java, but it would be a download entirely from PortableApps.com: "Java Portable".

Okay... I'll notify the user, but daBomb69 thought that I should bundle up the Java Portablizer with the launcher and start it if Java isn't found. Should I? It's a good idea but the Java Portablizer is a little outdated in PortableApps Installer code.

And what do you mean by cull the locales?

Closed source

The Java Portablizer is actually closed source, as because of its nature, John decided that was best. If you want that code, ask him.

By culling the locales I think Oliver means to put them into an optional installer component.

As Chris said, I mean to make installing other languages, like spanish, french etc. an option.

For the Java Portbilizer, you need to Discuss with John how to do that. My initial reaction is that if Java isn't on the drive, make it use a local copy, though that will require investigation as to the effects on the Host computer. Ask John on IRC how to handle this, as I'm not sure how to handle it myself.

Having fun yet? Biggrin

Okay... a few things...

For the last few days I've been trying to fix a weird bug with EclipseNSIS (Which isn't really major because just about nobody uses it) and how to do the Additional Languages option in the installer.

So... here's some questions...

1. I think I've fixed up the bug for Dev Test 5 but for this version I would like to make EclipseNSIS sepret. So like one of those GIMP plugins like the Portable Background Window or the Photoshop plugin? How would I do that?

2. I've found a download for additional languages on the eclipse website but I can't get the installer to work. I've uncommented the line specified but get errors. The problem is that I don't know where to put the langs.

And since I've become C++ developer... I've decided to package the C/C++ version of eclipse. And while I'm at it... the Java version too. Smile (Since the different pacages are pretty similar, the launcher works with them all :P)

But I need those questions answered before I do that.

Thanks.

Yeah...

It got rejected twice, but was accepted on the third try.

daBomb was begging me on the IRC to let him upload it on his SourceForge.net account. (I should have been begging) so it'll be on a faster server soon.

P.S. I am such a loser for forgetting to change 4 to 5

First of all, you need to use

First of all, you need to use the Java Portablizer made by John.

If you've read the previous comments, you'd know that I'm working on prompting the user if Java doesn't exists (plan on downloading the Java Portablizer and having the user set it up).

Here's the link. Download it (size is less than a meg), and install to the place it recommends. You also need Java installed on your local machine to do this, what it does is copy it over and configure it so it's Portable.

BTW, read more Kai Biggrin in the first few comments, Chris Morgan asked your same question, about the Java apps.https://portableapps.com/support/openoffice_portable#java

Umm..

That was the Classic version.

Eclipse has many different packages for different programmers.

I just added the C/C++ version as of Dev Test 5. Dev Test 4 only had the Classic version. But I've added the actual name (classic) of the package now.

So what you would want is the classic/regular one.

I haven't tested out OliverK's links. So if you're downloading it from there, that might explain it.

If you want, I'll package the true java version now (it's a little bigger though).

Guys, I found the path for where Eclipse is storing the locations of the the files in it's current tabs.

I was expecting a .ini or a .prefs file but...

It's an .xml file...

J:\PortableApps\EclipsePortable\Data\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.ui.workbench\workbench.xml

Anybody know how to update locations if it's storing paths in an XML file?

Just use the standard ReplaceInFile (with TextReplace) function.

${ReplaceInFile} "$DATADIRECTORY\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.ui.workbench\workbench.xml" "$LASTDRIVE\" "$CURRENTDRIVE\"
Delete "$DATADIRECTORY\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.ui.workbench\workbench.xml.oldReplaceInFile"

You should be using ReplaceInFileWithTextReplace.nsh, which is available with the latest apps. It doesn't need StrReplace.nsh, but does need the TextReplace plugin (included in NSIS Portable)

PHP?

I didn't notice anyone else asking this (at least here) but if you're going to the trouble of doing Classic, C, and Java releases, could you maybe do a PDT (PHP) release as well.... or should we just be taking the Classic and installing it ourselves?

Many thanks, love eclipse!

Two things

There is PHPeclipse, a distribution of Eclipse modified for PHP use, available in the community builds, and there is the PHP Development Toolkit (PDT), a plugin for Eclipse. Without having tried either, from former research I understand that they're somewhat different, but similar. I reckon that installing the PDT as a plugin is the way you should go with this rather than doing a PHPeclipse build.

Sourecforge instructions

Sourecforge instructions (cause I'm not gonna be around for long Sad and becuase I can't post your files.

  1. Go here: https://sourceforge.net/project/admin/editpackages.php
    ?group_id=259013 Click Add Release.
  2. Enter a name, say, Dev 7. Click, create this release.
  3. If you need to put in notes, then add those. But really, your concerned with the step 2, add files. Click the files you want in the release, then, click the Add Files/Refresh View button Clicking that button is important!
  4. Update the info. From there, I'm stuck because I don't have a copy of the file I want to put(and the time. Sad I need to go mail something.), I'm scared of using a lolcat to check. From there, it should be self-explanatory.
  5. Good luck. Oh, if no files show up, you may need to move them to the uploads folder you you sftp in.

Portable apps version of Eclipse

I've created a portable flash drive version of the new 3.5 Galileo release of Eclipse. I'm going to make a second copy of it to play around with and get it in the correct portable apps format. I'm also going to try compacting it as it is very large. As of now mine is dependent on the Portable JavaRuntime that is publicly released here.

Actually...

This launcher works with the new Galileo release. In the current version of Dev Test 8, I have one bug that only affects new installs (if you upgrade you're probably fine).

The Dev Test 9 launcher fixes the bug, but currently, only AppGuy and I only have it. It should be here, unless filesavr.com cleared it already.

I can't get on a normal computer right now. (only handheld devices) so I can't update the package.

Man i really wish it would be updated to 3.5
My school computers have really outdated versions of eclipse (3.2.2)
And i wish to have a portable version of eclipse so i can have a newer one (Some changes in galileo i also really like to have)

One thing that disturbs me though is that the java that PortableApps has is a jre not a jdk which i think is more suitable for using with eclipse.

I dont think there should be much of a problem in making a portable JDK, the only problem that should exist is the hosting of the non-open source bits.

EDIT: Maybe also adding support for having portable SVN support in eclipse. (Using one of the eclipse SVN support projects which a user can install to the portable eclipse)
The only thing that i think any SVN client leaves behind is a Subversion directory in the current user Application Data directory. so it should be easy to portablize, backup existing directory and restore it and copy settings between the portable drive and local harddrive.

Both your questions lead to yes and no answers...

This will work on XP fine.

To make it work on Mac OS X you need wine installed.

And make sure you have java too.

It depends on where the plugin puts it's settings. Normally most of them put it in the workspace folder. So MOST plugins will be portable.

EDIT 2:
Code for adding subversion support:
Insert before eclipse loads:

Subversion:
         IfFileExists "$APPDATA\Subversion\*.*" 0 +2
         Rename $APPDATA\Subversion $APPDATA\Subversionbackup
         IfFileExists "$DATADIRECTORY\Subversion\*.*" 0 +3
         CreateDirectory $APPDATA\Subversion
         CopyFiles $DATADIRECTORY\Subversion\*.* $APPDATA\Subversion

Insert after eclipse closes:

SubversionSave:
           IfFileExists "$APPDATA\Subversion\*.*" 0 +4
           IfFileExists "$DATADIRECTORY\Subversion\*.*" 0 +2
           RMDir /r $DATADIRECTORY\Subversion
           Rename $APPDATA\Subversion $DATADIRECTORY\Subversion
           IfFileExists "$APPDATA\Subversionbackup\*.*" 0 +2
           Rename $APPDATA\Subversionbackup $APPDATA\Subversion

EDIT 3: Id also recommended that you move the workspace from Data\ to Data\workspace\ so Eclipse wont have directories that it doesnt need to have in its workspace directory.

Comments on SVN handling

A few comments.

  • Rather than using Subversionbackup, use something clearer like Subversion-BackupByEclipsePortable.
  • You can't use Rename across drives. You'll need to:
    CopyFiles /SILENT $APPDATA\Subversion $DATADIRECTORY
    RMDir /r $APPDATA\Subversion
  • The problem is, $APPDATA\Subversion is used by all SVN clients for auth data saving. This becomes a problem in the following example:
    1. User has TortoiseSVN installed locally.
    2. User saves auth details for http://bpbible.googlecode.com/svn/trunk
    3. User uses Eclipse Portable
    4. While Eclipse Portable is running, user commits some marvellous new code. SHOCK HORROR! The saved password is gone! User actually has to find the SVN password to commit the code!

    Worse still, two applications, say Subcommander Portable and Eclipse Portable (ignore the fact that Subcommander Portable doesn't yet handle $APPDATA\Subversion... should get round to fixing that) get run together. They end up with clashing settings, and if run S then E and then closed in the same order, look what happens:

    • S started: APPDATA\Subversion = S settings, APPDATA\Subversion-bakS = local settings
    • E started: APPDATA\Subversion = E settings, APPDATA\Subversion-bakS = local settings, APPDATA\Subversion-bakE = S settings
    • S closed: saves Eclipse's settings! APPDATA\Subversion = local settings, APPDATA\Subversion-bakE = S settings
    • E closed: saves local settings, and leaves Subcommander's settings behind!

    As you can see, this is not desirable... Subcommander gets Eclipse's settings, Eclipse gets the local settings, and Subcommander's settings are Left Behind on the local machine... I think the only way to handle this is (dah de dah... imagine it's dramatic music) shared Subversion auth details. I don't know how we should do it, but it's the Only Way. @John T. Haller, we need your comment!

Hmmm

Hmmm if the was a way to redirect the saving of the subversion data to the portable drive...

Wait, is it possible to override windows Appdata enviroment variable for single program only (overriding it for the entire computer will make all the prgorams start writing there settings to the portable drive XD)

Since this is what most program use to find out the appdata directory it should work and separate the local subversion settings from the portable ones.

Yet this is only possible if windows allows such a change and wont block changing it.

EDIT: Does the launcher handle eclipse update restarts?
Also when i launch it it gives me a strange workspace path and refuses to start. The path is:
C:\EclipsePortable\C:\EclipsePortable\Data

EDIT 2: Setting the environment variable didn't work (It can be set but its still saves at application data\subversion probably its using another way to find the appdata location.

APPDATA

I've already tried changing APPDATA. It's no go with it. I'm not sure how exactly it gets it, as I would expect it to then break with the ShGetSpecialFolderLocation etc. call, but it doesn't. See Subcommander Portable for reference.

Doh

Why do they have to use a WinAPI call That gets CSIDL_APPDATA(0x001a) in a really complex matter through a library called jna.

I dont see how this could be overriden without hooking that function somehow...

Dammit whats wrong with using the APPDATA EnvVar -.-.

Well the only other way is patching this in source code and making a special portable SVN For eclipse version that can be installed to it. (Just look for mentions of appdata or applicationdata in source code its easy to find the method that gets this folder)

It will need to be overriden in the JavaHL or SVNKIT side.

But it does require selecting what version of svn support to make avalible and some users may want to have a diffrent version (subversive or subclipse, javahl or svnkit and what version of javahl or svnkit?)

Also does anyone else encounter the strange bug I encounter with the workspace directory?

Subversion

The problem is not with eclipse - it's with the global Subversion bindings. You can't fix it just for Eclipse because of the way it does its package management, updates etc.

Can this be fixed at all?

Im not sure if it is even possible unless all subversion clients suddenly add something like a SVNDATA enviroment variable to override where they save their data.

How do you think it should be done?

Again someone please check the bug about the workspace path i mentioned.
