Hi Suthanya,

When I read your question, I went over that wiki page again to follow it
from scratch. That meant I had to uninstall the Subclipse plugin which
enables SVN for eclipse. The uninstallation caused something to go wrong
with my personal Eclipse configuration files so that I for the last two
days I have been unable to reinstall the plugin except in /usr/share where
I don't have permissions. Fingers crossed, it looks like this problem may
be sorted out now, after which I will try out the steps on that Wiki page
again to uncover whether I left out describing some crucial steps.

May I know what operating system you are working on? I have so far only
successfully got GS3 working on Linux and the wiki page was written as a
walkthrough for Linux.

What part of that wiki page did you get working, where did the process
start failing for you?
- Did you get subclipse installed successfully ?
- Were you able to checkout greenstone3 code from within Eclipse (using
subclipse)?
- Are you having compilation errors after checking out the code? That is,
is Eclipse marking any java files and packages with a cross next to it to
indicate missing imports?
- Or did all this work out for you, but you are having trouble
successfully compiling and building with Ant?

There is the option of trying to install Greenstone 3 without Eclipse.
Using the X-term.
See
-
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Installing_Greenstone3#How_do_I_compile_Greenstone3_from_a_source_or_SVN_distribution.3F
for the important steps
-
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Walkthrough:_installing_Greenstone_3_from_SVN_source
for a detailed walkthrough which now also includes a longer
Troubleshooting section.

If you could try that in the meantime, I will from my end try to get back
to you on the matter of Eclipse/Subclipse (if it's successfull).

Regards,
Anupama
