List of CDD specific files

The following files have to be overwritten or added to a stock EiffelStudio release:

  • cdd base library classes -> Src/library/base/ise/support/cdd
  • the manual_test_class.cls file -> Delivery/studio/help/defaults
  • the new 16x16.png -> Delivery/studio/bitmaps/png/
  • the cdd examples folder -> Src/examples/cdd
  • Splash screens -> Delivery/studio/bitmaps/png/splash_shadow.png Delivery/studio/bitmaps/png/splash.png

How to roll a release on Windows

  • prepare some directory <INSTALL_DIR> like this:
    • create 3 subdirectories <INSTALL_DIR>/EiffelStudio, <INSTALL_DIR>/gcc, <INSTALL_DIR>/releases. Fill them according to the following description
      • [<INSTALL_DIR>/EiffelStudio] has to contain a complete delivery without the ec.exe binaries. Without a working delivery script, this can be achieved by "patching" an official installation:
        • copy the contents of the installation directory of a fresh offcial installation into <INSTALL_DIR>/EiffelStudio (fresh = NO EIFGENs produced. To be sure, uninstall the official version if alrady existing, manually delete the remains in the installation directory, and reinstall it WITHOUT building any precompilations)
        • Remove the ec.exe from <INSTALL_DIR>/EiffelStudio/studio/spec/windows/bin
        • Replace/Add the cdd specific files (see list above). Watch out for the proper place to add/replace them (the above list is svn-specific)
      • [<INSTALL_DIR>/gcc] needs to contain content of <svn-eiffel-branch>/free_add_ons/gcc
      • [<INSTALL_DIR>/releases] needs to contain the ec.exe binaries (the cdd versions of course)
        • <INSTALL_DIR>/releases/gpl_version/ needs to contain ec.exe
        • <INSTALL_DIR>/releases/enterprise_version/ needs to contain ec.exe (take the same ec.exe, it's a dummy for using the scripts later on)
  • let env variable %INSTALL_DIR% point to the <INSTALL_DIR>
  • let env variable %INIT_DIR% point to the <svn-eiffel-branch>/Delivery/scripts/windows folder
  • finalize the "hallow" tool (<svn-eiffel-branch>/Src/tools/hallow/hallow.ecf)
  • create if not exists directory %INIT_DIR%/install/bin
  • copy content of <svn-eiffel-branch>/Src/tools/hallow/EIFGENs/hallow/F_code to INIT_DIR/install/bin
  • create if not exists directory %INIT_DIR%/install/binaries/x86
  • get a proper setup.dll (from manus probably, or build yourself, instructions for this will be added soon) and put it into %INIT_DIR%/install/binaries/x86/
  • start command line, go to %INIT_DIR%/install/content/eiffelstudio and run:
    • nmake /nologo clean
    • nmake /nologo
    • nmake /nologo gpl_x86
  • wait some minutes .... and pray :-)
