Integrating ARM plug-ins into a custom Eclipse environment

The following Eclipse packages must be installed before you can integrate DS-5:

To install DS-5 into a custom Eclipse environment:

  1. Install DS-5 in a separate location from your custom Eclipse installation.

  2. Add the ...\DS-5\bin folder to the PATH environment variable.

  3. Create a new ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable with the path to your license file. For example, on Windows:

    ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE=C:\...\Application Data\ARM\DS-5\licenses
  4. Launch your custom Eclipse.

    1. Select Install New Software... from the Help menu.

    2. Click Add... to add a new update site.

    3. Enter a suitable name for the update site, for example: DS-5 Update Site.
