Installing the JReFrameworker Eclipse plugin is easy. It is recommended to install the plugin from the provided update site, but it is also possible to install from source. The current version of JReFrameworker has been tested on Eclipse Oxygen and Eclipse Neon (previous versions of Eclipse Luna and Eclipse Mars should work as well).

Installing from update site

Follow the steps below to install the JReFrameworker plugin from the Eclipse update site.

  1. Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software.
  2. Click Add, in the top-right corner.
  3. In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter "JReFrameworker" for the Name and "" for the Location.
  4. In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to “JReFrameworker” and click Next followed by OK.
  5. In the next window, you’ll see a list of the tools to be downloaded. Click Next.
  6. Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish. If you get a security warning saying that the authenticity or validity of the software can’t be established, click OK.
  7. When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.

Installing from source

If you want to install from source for bleeding edge changes, first grab a copy of the source repository. In the Eclipse workspace, import the jreframeworker, jreframeworker.engine, and org.objectweb.asm Eclipse projects located in the source repository. Note that you must have the Eclipse Plugin Development Tools installed in Eclipse to compile the plugin projects. Right click on the jreframeworker project and select Export. Select Plug-in Development > Deployable plug-ins and fragments. Select the Install into host. Repository: radio box and click Finish. Press OK for the notice about unsigned software. Once Eclipse restarts the plugin will be installed.
