(suse) use JRuby with eclipse and glimmer


#1

hi there!

here is my problem : I downloaded eclipse 3.4; then I compiled JRuby
from the subversion directory (it ran well), and I installed the RDT
plugin; at the first launch, eclipse told me it has detected the JRuby
installation : all this is good.
but my aim is to use eclipse, JRuby and glimmer (a project whose goal is
to build easily GUIs) (see
http://eclipse.dzone.com/articles/an-introduction-glimmer).
but I don’t see clearly how to make it run all together.

from the archive of glimmer (at the address
https://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4782&release_id=21788), I tried to
run a tic-tac-toe sample, without success :

could you help me to make this sample run (maybe many steps will be
necessary, due to the successive errors that will appear).

thank you for having all read,
