HowTo: Set up your deegree-API Example Environment
For the following steps, it's required to have the system requirements installed on your machine.
This HowTo enables you to set up an environment to test the deegree API and is the basic for following our tutorials and HowTos. We assume that your are working with Eclipse and have a svn client installed.
1. Check out and configure your eclipse environment
To get this example up and running, you just have to follow these steps:
Move to your target working directory and check out the deegree-api-examples from our repository: svn co http://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/deegree/deegree3/trunk/deegree-api-examples
- Change to your working directory
Type in mvn eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources=true -DdownloadJavadocs=true
The third step also downloads the sources and java docs; this may take a while. It is recommended to check out into your eclipse workspace, so that eclipse can directly read the contents of the checked out directories.
2. Getting started
Change to your eclipse environment and create a new Java Project called "deegree-api-examples". If you checked out into your eclipse workspace, eclipse will recognise the folders and dependencies. You can instantly write code against the deegree API.
