IT IS RECOMMENDED TO USE THE REGULAR ECLIPSE UPDATE MANAGER!!! USING THE INSTALLER TO UPDATE WILL RESULT IN APP DIR RESET. THIS MEANS IF YOU INSTALLED PHP, C++, OR Java SUPPORT WITH ECLIPSE, THEN IT'LL BE GONE. At the current moment (9-26-09)

RunLocally was ditched. There's no reason in it, it breaks the functionality of using 2 Eclipse instances at once, and THE APP DIR IS LIKE ALMOST 200MB!!! Who would want to do that? Using it would kill your drive :P.

TO CLEAR UP ANOTHER BIGGER CONFUSION (INSTALLING JAVA PORTABLE)
Eclipse relies on Java. I found that a lot of users were having trouble installing java. So let me explain how I've made the launcher look for java. First, it looks in for the Java path specified in the .ini file (when it's copied to the same directory as Eclipse Portable). If that path does not contain Java, or the ini file was never found, "[X]:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java" is searched next. This allows integration to Java Portable, which can be downloaded from the Applications tab on this web site (at the top). Just install it to the default path. If that wasn't found in the above path, the second place it looks is in the path OpenOffice.org also uses. "[X]:\PortableApps\EclipsePortable\App\Java". Then the third and final, is the one the regular eclipse might use for specific eclipse development reasons (for example, JRE is installed on the system, but the user wants eclipse to use JDK). One user has requested that JDK would be better for Eclipse Portable use. This would be the answer, to place JDK in App\Java and change the .ini path to direct to it. And, as a last resort, Eclipse Portable uses the local Java if Java wasn't found in all the above paths plus the ini specified one. Hope this does not confuse you. If it does, leave a comment telling me where it got confusing. Thanks! And BTW, I decided to write this because "pa_8170" came on the webchat IRC while I was IDLE, and made me feel guilty for not being there Sad

NOTE: The above applies as of Development Test 3

Development Test 5 Released

Development Test 5 Released.

This fixes a problem that was probably created from a series of new features being added to the launcher. The problem/bug was fixed by converting relative pathing to absolute pathings.

Example: ..\CommonFiles\Java\bin\javaw.exe --> B:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java\bin\javaw.exe

Guess what? This means that about 700 users have to upgrade Blum

Also, all relative paths in the INI will now be switched to start from the root of the Eclipse Portable path. "B:\PortableApps\EclipsePortable"

MinGW Portable support was added, FINALLY!!!
A lot of you have been requesting this, and it was tested and works Smiling
Just install the MinGWPortable folder parallel with EclipsePortable folder.

So use pathing like this.

B:
- \PortableApps
- - - - - - - -\EclipsePortable
- - - - - - - -\MinGWPortable
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -\App
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -\MinGW
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -\bin
- - - - - - - -\CommonFiles
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -\Java
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - \bin
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - \javaw.exe

What if I want to use more than one :?

If I for some reason feel the need to have all of the eclipse editions offered here, must I install them into separate folders? It is kind of a wild question but if you think about it it could have some advantages if I could do that

You can just download the Classic Edition and use Help --> Install New Software window to install all support for all the other programming IDE's.

Ok for a Noob to use

I know this probably isn't really the most correct place to post a question, but I try very hard to never do things the easy way. Smile

I am new to development. I've literally been introduced and plowing through my first programming language (VB) only a matter of a few months ago.

I'm thinking of trying my hand at development for the Android phone and Eclipse is prescribed development environment along with the Android plug-in.

I've never used Eclipse, I'm not at all familiar with Java script, but I'm totally not afraid. I am however a QA/QC by trade so the fact that this project is in beta just makes me feel at home.

Now with all of that long and rambling preamble, I have to ask would I be an asset or annoyance to this here project?

Is the Android plug-in compatible with the portable version? Am I just wasting everyone's time?

No way! Nobody looking for help will ever be a nuisance here Biggrin

I didn't know there was an Android Plug-In for Eclipse. Try it out.

If there's any issues, post back. Smile

Can I get the launcher source code to look at, so I don't have to download the whole thing.

Confused as to why this package is marked [Outdated]

[Outdated] Eclipse Portable 3.5.1 Development Test 5

This version of Eclipse is still widely used. Blackberry and the Android community still prefer it over the latest version of Eclipse. I'm confused why this package is label outdated. Is it just because there is a new version available here in the forum?

As a suggestion, I think the packages should be labeled:

Eclipse Galileo (3.5)
Eclipse Helios (3.6)

Then what ever language one perfer to start with.
