					Openfire SVN + Eclipse 3.3 + Subversive
Installation Guide

This guide assumes that you are installing everything from scratch. If you've done some
parts of them, this guide may still be useful. I compiled this guide to the best of my
knowledge. I apologize if it doesn't work for you.


     •   This guide assumes that you want the latest updates of the source i.e. from the
         project's trunk directory. If you only want the released/stable version, checkout the
         desired release from under the tags directory.


Install JDK
     •   Download JDK and install them. The least version should be 1.5. I use 1.6. Sorry, no
         instruction for this.

Install Eclipse 3.3
     •   Download Eclipse 3.3 from I use Eclipse IDE for Java EE
         Developers. You should at least use Eclipse IDE for Java Developers.
     •   Extract the downloaded zip file into C:/Program Files/Eclipse.
     •   Open C:/Program Files/Eclipse folder.
     •   Right click and drag eclipse.exe on to your desktop (or Windows taskbar) to create
         a shortcut icon.
     •   Right click the shortcut icon and choose Properties. The Eclipse Properties
         window will show.

      •   The Target textbox should read something like this "C:\Program Files\Eclipse
          \eclipse.exe" -vm "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\bin\javaw" depending on the
          JDK that you use and where you installed it.
      •   Close the Eclipse Properties window.

      •   In the Project Explorer screen, if there is an openfire project, delete it. This project
          was created during the Openfire check out process. Yes you read it correctly,
          DELETE the project!!! Otherwise you'll have to setup your Openfire development
          environment manually. On the Confirm Project Delete choose Do not delete
          contents, then click Yes.
      •   Click File::New::Project... Notice the ellipses!!!
      •   Select Java::Java Project and click Next.
      •   On the New Java Project window choose Create project from existing source
          and browse to where openfire folder is located under your workspace.
      •   In the Project name box enter exactly as openfire. Otherwise, the Next and Finish
          button remain disabled. Click on Next. Eclipse will read the directory structure to
          setup the environment automatically (almost) for you and you can see what it does
          on the next screen. Then click on Finish.
      •   If the Open Associated Perspective windows opens, click Yes.

Build Openfire
      •   Click Window::Show View::Ant menu.
      •   Right-click the Ant screen and choose Add Buildfiles...
      •   Expand the openfire::build folder and select build.xml, then click OK.
      •   On the Ant screen, expand the Openfire XMPP Server and double-click on
          openfire ant task. The build may fail because you're checking out the daily updates
          of Openfire sources, which may contain bugs. If so, wait for another day and hope
          that the developers discover and fix the bug; or you might dare to fix it yourself.
          During this first time setup, a successful build is necessary before you can proceed
          with the remaining tasks below.

Create Project Builder
      •   Click Run::Open Run Dialog... or Run::Open Debug Dialog... menu. A Run
          window shows.
      •   Select Java Application and click on the New button.
      •   On the Main tab of the Run window, change the New_configuration name to
          Openfire or anything you like.
      •   Click on Project::Browse button and select openfire and click OK.
      •   Click on Main class::Search button and select ServerStarter -
          org.jivesoftware.openfire.starter and click OK.
      •   I'd suggest that you select Stop in main check box so that you could later verify that
          debugging works.
      •   Click on the Arguments tab.
      •   Enter -DopenfireHome="$/target/openfire" in the VM arguments box.
