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:
    • INSTALL_DIR/EiffelStudio : contains the complete delivery without the ec.exe binaries. There are several ways to get this, one is "patching" an official installation:
      • Put the contents of the ISE_EIFFEL directory of an existing installation into INSTALL_DIR/EiffelStudio
      • 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 the add/replace them (the above list svn-specific)
    • INSTALL_DIR/gcc: content of <svn-eiffel-branch>/free_add_ons/gcc
    • INSTALL_DIR/releases/gpl_version/ec.exe: the cdd version ec.exe
    • INSTALL_DIR/releases/enterprise_version/ec.exe: the cdd version ec.exe (take the same ec.exe, it's a dummy for script to work and won't be used)
  • let env variable INSTALL_DIR point to this <INSTALL_DIR>
  • let env variable INIT_DIR point to your Delivery/scripts/windows folder
  • finalize the "hallow" tool (Src/tools/hallow/hallow.ecf)
  • create if not exists directory %INIT_DIR%/install/bin
  • copy content of 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) 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 :-)
