<title>SWT Standalone Examples Setup</title>
<h2>SWT standalone examples setup</h2>
<h3>Importing example source</h3>
*** In the following description, substitute the location in which you installed Eclipse for INSTALLDIR ***
<p>Import the example code and all its required resources into your workspace:</p>
<li>Create a Java Project called "SWT Examples".
<li>Select the project "SWT Examples" in the Packages view.
<li>Select the <strong>File</strong> &gt; <strong>Import</strong> menu, then select <strong>Zip File</strong> from the subsequent dialog and click <strong>Next</strong>.
<li>Locate the source zip file for the SWT examples. For example:
<li><em>win32: </em><code>INSTALLDIR\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.examples_2.1.0\</code>
<li><em>*ix: </em><code>INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.examples_2.1.0/</code>
<li>Click <strong>Finish</strong>.
<li>Select the <strong>File</strong> &gt; <strong>Import</strong> menu, then select <strong>Zip File</strong> from the subsequent dialog and click <strong>Next</strong>.
<li>Locate the jar file for the SWT examples. For example:
<li><em>win32: </em><code>INSTALLDIR\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.examples_2.1.0\swtexamples.jar</code>
<li><em>*ix: </em><code>INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.examples_2.1.0/swtexamples.jar</code>
<li>Expand the top level directory of the jar file (/), uncheck "META-INF", and click <strong>Finish</strong>.
<li>In the resulting "<em>Overwrite?</em>" prompter click <strong>No To All</strong> so that only non-class resources will be imported.
<p>Now you need to compile the SWT examples. In order to do this, you must add the SWT jar(s) to
the compile path:</p>
<li>Select the project "SWT Examples" in the Packages view, and from its context menu select <strong>Properties</strong>.
<li>Select the <strong>Java Build Path</strong> page, and then select its <strong>Libraries</strong> tab.
<li>Click on the <strong>Add External JARs...</strong> button.
<li>Locate the swt jar for the platform on which you wish to run:<br>
<li><em>win32: </em><code>INSTALLDIR\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.win32_2.1.0\ws\win32\swt.jar</code>
<li><em>gtk: </em><code>INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.gtk_2.1.0/ws/gtk/swt.jar</code>
<li><em>motif: </em><code>INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.motif_2.1.0/ws/motif/swt.jar</code>
<li><em>photon: </em><code>INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.photon_2.1.0/ws/photon/swt.jar</code>
<li><em>macosx: </em><code>INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.carbon_2.1.0/ws/carbon/swt.jar</code>
<li>Click on OK.
<p><strong>NOTE:</strong> For some platforms, such as GTK, more than one jar is required to run SWT (on
GTK there is a swt.jar and a swt-pi.jar file). In this case all of the required jars must
be added to the class path. This is done by repeating the steps above for each jar file.
All jar files are located in the same directory/folder.</p>
<p>At this point your SWT examples should be compiled without any errors. Check the Tasks
view for errors. If you get an error like "<code>java.lang.Object</code> not found" it means
you have not configured a JRE. Go to the <strong>Window</strong> &gt; <strong>Preferences</strong> dialog
and select the <strong>Java</strong> &gt; <strong>Installed JREs</strong> preference page and ensure that a JRE is installed
and that the path to the JRE is correct.</p>
<h3><a NAME="Run"></a>Running the Example</h3>
<p>Now you have to configure Eclipse to run the example. This requires putting the SWT
JNI libraries on the library path so that the VM can find them:
<li>Open the Java perspective.
<li>In the Packages view, select the main class that you want to run.
For example, the main class for the Address Book example is
<li>Select <strong>Run</strong> &gt; <strong>Run...</strong> from the main menu.
<li>In the Launch Configurations dialog that appears, select <strong>Java Application</strong> and click
on the <strong>New</strong> button.
<li>Fill in the <strong>Name</strong>, <strong>Project</strong> and <strong>Main</strong> class fields according to the example that you wish to run.
<li>Select the <strong>Arguments</strong> tab. In the <strong>VM Arguments</strong> area specify the location of the SWT
library depending on your target platform as follows:
<li><em>win32: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR\plugins\org.eclipse.swt.win32_2.1.0\os\win32\x86</code>
<li><em>linux gtk: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.gtk_2.1.0/os/linux/x86</code>
<li><em>linux motif: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.motif_2.1.0/os/linux/x86</code>
<li><em>solaris motif: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.motif_2.1.0/os/solaris/sparc</code>
<li><em>aix motif: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.motif_2.1.0/os/aix/ppc</code>
<li><em>hpux motif: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.motif_2.1.0/os/hpux/PA_RISC</code>
<li><em>photon qnx: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.photon_2.1.0/os/qnx/x86</code>
<li><em>macosx: </em><code>-Djava.library.path=INSTALLDIR/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.carbon_2.1.0/os/macosx/ppc</code>
<li>Click on the <strong>Run</strong> button.
