Openfire .tar.gz + Eclipse 3.1 Installation Guide

Version 1

    The following instructions were updated in May 2007 for Openfire.


    Setup Openfire


    Install jdk-1_5_0_11-windows-i586-p.exe (or just copy the files to

    %programfiles%\Java so you're registry is not modified)

    Extract to C:\Tools\

    Start C:\Tools\eclipse\eclipse.exe and set

    Workspace to C:\ws\eclipse\workspace\

    If start fails because no javaw.exe is found add

    %programfiles%\Java\jdk1.5.0_11\bin to the PATH

    variable manually and start it

    Close the Welcome screen

    Menu Window, Preferences; Java, Compiler:

    "Compiler Compliance Level:" 5.0

    Exit Eclipse

    Extract openfire_src_3_3_1.jar to C:\ws\eclipse\workspace\

    Start Eclipse

    Select File, New, Project;

    Java Project Next;

    Project Name "openfire_src" (JDK Compliance and

    Projct layout will get disabled) Next;


    Menu Window, Show Wiew, Ant;

    Right click in "Ant", "Add Buildfiles"

    Select openfire_src\build\build.xml

    Double click "all" ... and wait to complete the build


    Help Eclipse to find the right build path


    Menu File, Properties: Configure Build Path: Libraries: Add External JARs: Add all files you find in openfire_src\target\openfire\lib

    That's really a little bit crazy but with this Eclipse version it seems to be the only possible solution.
