#8 How do I get started


I downloaded your plugin zip, unzipped it, and put all
the directories starting with your domain name into my
eclipse directory. The "about eclipse" help widow seems
to include it, and there's a "green" panel in the
preferences thingo.

Now what? Where's the menu item? Where's the toolbar? I
have an existing java codebase - how do I start
exploring it? What do I click next? Where's the help?

Could you please add a "getting started with the green
plugin for eclipse" to the green homepage? Or something?

I'll keep exploring the eclipse interface, but beats me
where the green UML button is hiding. Maybe I'll have
to look in those plugin config xml files.

    You need to ensure you have correctly installed the GEF plugins (Graphical Editing Framework) for eclipse.
    This is attainable at "http://www.eclipse.org/gef/"

    You probably have a problem with your Eclipse, Green, or GEF version
    See https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1656906&forum_id=450184


    Ensure the "Graphical Editing Framework" and "Green" plugins appear as installed under "Help > About Eclipse SDK > Plug-in Details"


    The appropriate question is: "Does JDK 1.4.2 support GEF and Green?"
    GEF is supported; Green is not. You need JRE/JDK 1.5.0 or higher to use Green.

    If you can't see them in the Eclipse Plugin list, they're not installed properly. Make sure you extracted them into the /eclipse/plugins directory.
