Eclipse Oxygen.2 with ANT and JRE6

Post to Twitter

The support for ANT and JRE6 with Eclipse Oxygen.2 (December 2017).

The plugin was created for:

Version: Oxygen.2 Release (4.7.2)
Build id: 20171218-0600

Don't forget the -clean start (read the original article for more details)!

One more thing you should do:

Oxygen.1 and Oxygen.2 contain ANT 1.10.1. This version requires Java 8. In order to use Java 6, you have to download ANT 1.9.x. Simply download ANT and set the ANT Home to your version, via

Window >> Preferences >> ANT >> Runtime >> Ant Home...

If you try to use the bundled ANT with JRE 6, it will fail with an Exception.

Download the plugin from here. It works for us - no warranty!

We showed you the upcoming CSS edit feature of VisionX. This feature was used in our new tutorial Style Invoice application.

The standard Invoice application was more or less a standard VisionX application with some standard colors and icons. Not super fancy.

The Styled Invoice application demonstrates how easy it can be to apply your own Style to an application, created with VisionX.

The new tutorial is available in our documentation system.
