Olca-app This repository contains the source code of the application. OpenLCA is a Java application that runs on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform. This project depends on the and projects which are plain projects that contain the core functionalities (e.g.
a. the. and (for building the HTML5 user interface components) When you have these tools installed you can build the application from source via the following steps: Install the openLCA core and update modules The core and update modules contain the application logic that is independent from the user interface and can be also used in other applications. These modules are plain Maven projects and can be installed via mvn install. See the and repositories for more information. Get the source code of the application We recommend that to use Git to manage the source code but you can also download the source code as a.
Create a development directory (the path should not contain whitespaces). Cd olca-app/olca-app-html Then install the Node.js modules via (npm is a package manager that comes with your Node.js installation): npm install This will create a folder olca-app-html/nodemodules with the dependent modules. After this, you can create the html package via Gulp: gulp This will build and package the HTML files to olca-app/olca-app/html/basehtml.zip.
Prepare the Eclipse workspace Download the current Eclipse package for RCP and RAP developers (to have everything together you can extract it into your development directory). Create a workspace directory in your development directory (e.g. Under the eclipse folder to have a clean structure): eclipse. Workspace olca-app.git olca-app olca-app-build olca-app-html olca-app-runtime. After this, open Eclipse and select the created workspace directory.
Import the projects into Eclipse via Import General Existing Projects into Workspace (select the olca/olca-app directory). You should now see the olca-app, olca-app-build, and olca-app-runtime projects in your Eclipse workspace. Loading the target platform and The file platform.target in the olca-app project contains the definition of the of the openLCA RCP application. Just open the file with the Target Editor and click on Set as target platform on the top right of the editor.
This will download the resources of the target platform into your local workspace and, thus, may take a while. Unfortunately, setting up and configuring Eclipse can be quite challenging. If you get errors like Unable locate installable unit in target definition, may help. Copy the Maven modules Go back to the command line and navigate to the olca-app/olca-app folder. Mvn package This will copy the installed openLCA core modules and dependencies (see above) to the folder olca-app/olca-app/libs.
Add the JavaFX-SWT bridge Since version 1.6, openLCA uses JavaFX components (e.g. The JavaFX WebView or charting components). The Java runtime contains a JavaFX-SWT bridge with which it is possible to embed JavaFX components in SWT applications. This bridge is contained in the library jfxswt.jar which you need to add to the Java runtime in Eclipse. To do this, open the preferences for the installed Java runtimes Window Preferences Java Installed JREs, select the enabled JRE and click on Edit. In the upcoming dialog, click on Add External JARs and select the jre/lib/jfxswt.jar library from the respective Java installation. Test the application Refresh your Eclipse workspace (select all and press F5).
Open the file within Eclipse and click on the run icon. OpenLCA should now start. If you want to build an installable product, see the description in the sub-project or simply use the Eclipse export wizard (Export/Eclipse product). Build the database templates The openLCA application contains database templates that are used when the user creates a new database (empty, with units, or with all reference data). There is a Maven project olca-refdata that creates these database templates and copies them to the olca-app/olca-app/dbtemplates folder from which openLCA loads these templates.
To build the templates, navigate to the refdata project and run the build. Cd olca-app/olca-refdata mvn package Building with Eclipse Oxygen and Julia libraries For Windows, it is now possible to build openLCA so that it runs on the Eclipse Oxygen platform and uses some math libraries for high performance computing from the project.
This is currently tested with package for RCP/RAP development. The initial steps for this build are the same as before:. install/update the openLCA core and update modules. build the HTML pages. build the database templates The current master branch of the olca-app project contains now a new target platform definition olca-app/olca-app/platform.target. When you open this file the first time with the Eclipse Target Editor, Eclipse will download the resources of this target platform into your workspace.
You may get errors like Unable locate installable unit in target definition when Eclipse fails to download some resources or the like (for possible fixes, see ). But when it is downloaded it should work quite stable. Click on the Set as Target Platform link in the upper right corner of the Target Editor to use this as the target platform. To build the Windows version, we currently use the standard PDE Export wizard. Click on the olca-app project and then on Export.
From the context menu. Select Plug-in Development Eclipse Product from the export wizard and select the following options in the export dialog:. Configuration: /olca-app/openLCA.product (should be the default). Root directory: openLCA. Synchronize before exporting: yes x. Destination directory: choose the olca-app-build/build folder of this project. Generate p2 repository: no (would be just overhead).
Openlca Mac Error
Export for multiple platforms: yes x. (take the defaults for the others) In the next page, select the platforms for which you want to build the product. However, only the Windows x8664 version is currently fully supported. After the export, you need to run the package script pack10.py to copy resources like the Java runtime, Julia libraries, etc. To the application folder and to create the installers. The layout of the build folder (with tools and runtime libraries) is the same as for the old build (see the olca-app-build project) but additionally contains a julia folder which contains the julia libraries.
Openlca For Mac
The distribution packages for Linux and macOS are still build as before. There is a olcaplatform branch which contains the build configuration for the old target platform. Switch to this branch and merge the current master into this branch and the old build should work. License Unless stated otherwise, all source code of the openLCA project is licensed under the.
