AWIPS Development Environment (ADE)

Quick instructions on how to deploy CAVE from Eclipse.

  1. Change /etc/yum.repos.d/awips2.repo to

    name=AWIPS II Repository
  2. yum clean all && yum groupinstall awips2-ade

    This will install Eclipse (4.5), Java (1.8), Ant, Maven, Python 2.7 and its modules (Numpy, Matplotlib, Shapely, others).

  3. git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2.git

    The full list of repositories required as of release 17.1.1:

    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-core.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-core-foss.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-foss.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-ncep.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-nws.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-gsd.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-drawing.git
    git clone https://github.com/Unidata/awips2-cimss.git
  4. Run /awips2/eclipse/eclipse.sh

    • Preferences > Java

      Set to /awips2/java

    • Preferences > PyDev > Python Interpreter

      Set to /awips2/python/bin/python (should be resolved by Auto-Config)

    • File > Import > General > Existing Projects Into Workspace

      Import all of the git cloned project folders EXCEPT for the main (first) github.com/Unidata/awips2.git directory (which should be ~/awips2).

      You'll want to import ~/awips2 in two parts to ensure a clean and error-free Eclipse build:

      1. Import awips2/cave > Select All Projects > Finish
      2. Import awips2/edexOsgi > Select All Projects > Finish

      Now import all other repositories fully:

      Select awips2-core, awips2-core-foss, awips2-foss, awips2-ncep, etc. > Select All Projects > Finish

    • Project > Clean

      Run a clean build and ensure no errors are reported.

  5. Run com.raytheon.viz.product.awips/developer.product

    Double-click the developer.product file to open the Product View in Eclipse. Select Overview > Synchronize and then right-click the file in the left-side package explorer:

    Select Run As > Eclipse Application to launch CAVE in the development environment.

    Select Debug > Eclipse Application to launch CAVE in in debug mode.
