Denodo Platform includes an Eclipse plugin called Denodo4E, through which Java developers could create, deploy and debug custom components like functions, stored procedures, data sources, etc.
First of all, let us see how to install the Denodo4E plugin:
By default, the Denodo4E plugin files are located in the directory
$DENODO_HOME/tools/denodo4e/updateSite of your Denodo 8.0 installation.
For installing the plugin in Eclipse you have to launch Eclipse and click on
Install New Software on the menu
We are going to use the plugin folder as local repository in Eclipse. For doing that, click the
Add button and enter the name as "Denodo" in
Add Repository dialog.
Local and browse to the updateSite folder of your Denodo Installation folder and click
The following dialog will be shown. Ensure you have enabled the check box
Contact all update sites during install to find required software.
Next > to review the Denodo license agreement and Click
Once the installation is completed, restart Eclipse and you could see new Denodo4E buttons available in the Eclipse Toolbar.
And also, when you navigate to the option
File > New > Project, you could see a "Denodo4E" option available which would be used to create new custom components
(you will learn about it in detail in next sections).
Go to the next section for creating your first custom component in Denodo!
