ECT is currently hosted using CVS facilities provided by SourceForge. For instructions on how to check out modules from the EQUIP project at SourceForge, click here. The name of the module containing ECT within EQUIP project CVS is ect.
To compile ECT, you will need to install:
Open a commmand shell and set your environment for using Ant and
Java, e.g. set ANT_HOME to the directory in which ant is installed, set
JAVA_HOME to the directory in which java is install and set PATH to
include the /bin subdirectories of each. In some cases you may need to
overrider the default CLASSPATH, e.g. with just ".". For example:
To build from source, move to the ect/java sudirectory and run ant using the command line
This should create a webstart installation in the webstart directory, and
individual scripts and resources for independent use in the install directory.
See other documentation for more details on how to run ECT, but to quickly get started in running the graph editor, move to the webstart directory and, on a Windows machine, run the runwebstart.bat batch fil using command line
Scripts also exist in this directory for unix machines.
