How to setup DMDDB in Eclipse (from Git)


This tutorial will guide you on how to setup your workspace in eclipse in order to create your own experiments using the DMDDB database. To help you start working with DMDDB, several simple source code examples are provided and can be installed in eclipse by following the instructions given in this tutorial.

Step 1 of 3. Download required files
This tutorial assumes that you have already installed eclipse in your computer. If you are new to eclipse, you can download it from www.eclipse.org and install it in your computer. Eclipse is a very popular and easy-to-use environment for developing software applications in Java as well as other programming languages.

By now you should have installed eclipse and you can now proceed to the next step.


Step 2 of 3. Import DMDDB source code examples from Git
Open eclipse, and from the 'File' menu select 'Import...' and then select 'Git' > 'Projects from Git'.


Select the 'URI' option and click 'Next'.


Type the URI of the git repository as shown in the image below and then click 'Next' (a few times) and 'Finish'. The link to the Git repository is the following: http://research.dwi.ufl.edu/git/DMDDBDemo


After that, the new project in the project explorer should appear as it is shown in the image below.



Step 3 of 3. Execute sample applications
The provided DMDDB source code contains several example applications. Each of these applications can run as standalone Java application. From the project explorer expand the folder of the corresponding application and then open the Start...  .java file. To run the example click on the green play button on the top of the eclipse window, or from the menu select 'Run' > 'Run', or use the shortcut Ctrl+F11.

Enjoy!


How to setup DMDDB in Eclipse (manually)


Step 1 of 3. Download required files
This tutorial assumes that you have already installed eclipse in your computer. If you are new to eclipse, you can download it from www.eclipse.org and install it in your computer. Eclipse is a very popular and easy-to-use environment for developing software applications in Java as well as other programming languages.

Download the source code of the DMDDB examples from the Source Code Examples web-site. The source code of all the available examples is provided in 1 zip file.

By now you should have downloaded 1 ZIP file and installed eclipse in your system and you can now proceed to the next step.


Step 2 of 3. Import Java project
Open eclipse, and from the 'File' menu select 'Import' > 'General' > 'Existing Projects into Workspace'

A dialog window will open (similar to the one shown below).

Select 'Archive File' and click 'Browse' to find the zip file you downloaded in step 1 with the DMDDB source code. After that click on 'Finish'. The DMDDBDemo project should appear in your project explorer as shown in the image below.


Step 3 of 3. Execute sample applications
The provided DMDDB source code contains several example applications. Each of these applications can run as standalone Java application. From the project explorer expand the folder of the corresponding application and then open the Start...  .java file. To run the example click on the green play button on the top of the eclipse window, or from the menu select 'Run' > 'Run', or use the shortcut Ctrl+F11.

Enjoy!
