Thanks to everyone who replied and Im having an attempt to use eclipse
which seems to do all I want.
However it isnt working and there does not seem to be install
documentation on the Eclipse site having said that the install looks as
if it should be a breeze.
I did fine the following
Following this all through I end up with the following
Eclipse is installed at /opt/eclipse
JDK1.5.0-02 is installed at /usr/java
then the lines from james_in_denvers final post becomes
When I issue java -version I get
This script is a placeholder for the /usr/bin/java
master link required by jpackage.org conventions. libgcj's
rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools are now slave symlinks to these
masters, and are managed by the alternatives(8) system.
This change was necessary because the rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools
installed by previous versions of libgcj conflicted with symlinks
installed by jpackage.org JVM packages.
gij (GNU libgcj) version 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)
Then when I try to fire up eclipse from the terminal I get a pop up
A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be
available to run Eclipse. No Java virtual mchine was found after
searching the following locations
'java' in your current path
Obviously it wouldnt be found in /opt or .jre/bin/java as I have jdk but
should the two lines in the profile not add the jdk to the path??
Im thinking that this is a path or link/symlink issue but not sure how
It is interesting to note that Eclipse is going to be built into FC4!
Any help appreciated!
