Bogor uses several software that are freely available for download:
Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) or Development Kit (JDK) version 5.0 (a.k.a. 1.5.0) or above,
Eclipse Platform or Eclipse Software Development Kit (SDK) version 3.1M3 (milestone build) or above,
Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) version 3.0,
GNU Trove library version 1.0.2, and
Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) library version 1.0.1.
The Bogor distribution includes the GNU Trove and JAXB libraries, thus, you do not need to download those libraries separately. You can download the Bogor distribution at the Bogor website .
The following installation instruction assumes that the user is using a Linux system with the JRE/JDK and the GTK2 toolkit installed. Suppose that you put the required files in a directory called DOWNLOADS, and that you want to install Eclipse at ECLIPSE_ROOT_DIR /eclipse. You can enter the following commands in a command shell to install Bogor and Eclipse:
cd $ECLIPSE_ROOT_DIR jar xvf $DOWNLOADS/eclipse-SDK-3.1M3-linux-gtk.zip jar xvf $DOWNLOADS/GEF-SDK-3.0.zip cd eclipse/plugins jar xvf $DOWNLOADS/bogor-bin-<VERSION>.jar cd .. ./eclipse&
Figure 1.4, “Eclipse Screen Shot” presents the Eclipse window after running the commands above. The Eclipse help contents provide excellent tutorials to get started using Eclipse (i.e., by accessing the Help->Help Contents menu item). You may need to set your browser preference in Eclipse before you are able to open the Eclipse help system (i.e., by accessing the Window->Preference menu item and then Help in the preference tree).
