Setup Eclipse to for JSPWiki is very easy. This page has been updated for Eclipse 3.3 (Europa)

  • Ensure that you have a JRE at least to version 1.5.
  • Install Eclipse 3.x. Eclipse can be downloaded from http://eclipse.org. You may want to get the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers. Set the JRE 1.5 as the workspace default.
  • Start Eclipse and create a new workspace for JSPWiki
  • Install Subclipse by selecting Help/Software Updates and adding the Subclipse update site. See the installation directions on the Subclipse site for more details.
  • Open menu item File/New/Project, and from the New Project dialog choose SVN/Checkout Projects from SVN. Now click Next
  • Fill in the SVN fields as described on AnonymousSVNAccess. Select Create a new Repository Location. Enter http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/jspwiki/ as the new repository location. Browse to the tag you want. Now click Next
  • Select Check out as project in the workspace, use JSPWiki as the project name and select Check out HEAD revision. Now click Finish or Next if you want to change the default settings.
  • Most likely, your buildpath will be incorrect due to differences in the JRE location. Select Project-> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Libraries -> System JRE -> Edit. Select the default workspace JRE, click Ok, and the project should begin building.

You can now edit and compile JSPWiki!


I get this error message

The project was not built since its build path is incomplete. Cannot find the class file for java.lang.Object. Fix the build path then try building this project

in org.apache.catalina.util

Check that your build path is correct.

The problem is that the jre library doesn't match remove it from the build path and then re added it. This should only happen when you cvs export for the first time

In the build path it is jre 1.5(for now). For eclipse, go to Project\Properties\Java Build Path\Libraries and look for JRE System Library near the bottom. remove that and add your JRE path(usually default as detected). Hope that helps for very begginers like me.

I've created DebuggingJSPWikiOnTomcatWithEclipse. It's a short overview on how to install and debug JSPWiki on Apache Tomcat using the Eclipse IDE. Shell and batch scripts are included.
