LATE RELEASE (7-7-10)
Sorry for the late release guys.
HELIOS RELEASE (5-22-10)
After looking into Eclipse Portable source again after a while, I found some flaws in it, even with LogicLib. I had the same type of flaws in my other launchers, they worked fine, but just not in the most efficient way. I believe I fixed them all in the lastest AkelPad Portable, and VLMC Dev Test 2.
Since Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) is June 23rd, I'll release the new launcher then.
HELP VOTE A SUBCLIPSE BUG!!! (2-19-10)
An issue with subversion passwords not being portable has held back Eclipse Portable from being official. Please help vote. And after all, it's Eclipse Portable's 1st year anniversary!!!
ECLIPSE PORTABLE FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY (2-10-10)
Only 9 more days until Eclipse Portable's 1 year anniversary.... whoopee.
PACKAGES CONFUSION CLEANUP (1-18-10)
Eclipse has many different packages for different developers. To find out what version of Eclipse is right for you, take a look at the Package Comparison over at eclipse.org
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
NOTE: The above applies as of Development Test 3
