Eclipse

The Open Source Eclipse project can provide a wealth of tools that can be used in conjunction with IBM BPM:

The Java EE and Web Tools package is ideal for building Java EE WAR applications for deployment into a WAS server.

Developing Java EE Apps

Through the Eclipse Marketplace we can install the IBM development tools for WebSphere Application Server v8.5. This provides us with the tools and other mechanics for building and deploying applications for WAS. While not strictly necessary for any kind of BPM work, there may come times when we wish to run native Java EE apps.

When working in this mode, we must launch Eclipse with the Java JVM supplied by IBM BPM. To achieve that, edit the eclipse.ini file and find the line which starts with --launcher and append after that:

-vm
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/java/bin/java

This must occur before the -vmargs option.
