Eclipse

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Eclipse

I think that this suite can be use portable.

http://www.eclipse.org/


"Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for building software. "

http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

Eclipse SDK 3.1.2



Only extract zip and use.

Eclipse requires the Java runtime to be installed.

I don't know what was the situation two and a half years ago (date of previous post), but the first place eclipse looks for javaw.exe is "eclipse\jre\bin\javaw.exe", so actually java runtime does not have to be installed on host machine, you can just put jre directory (about 100MB) in eclipse application directory and it will work just fine. That makes eclipse bigger, but portable.

As I see, it is the only JRE app that must be added to the database.

The main reason is: To program in Java, you need the JRE !

Java Portable 6 Update 17 has been released by PortableApps.com. Java Portable allows you to easily install the Java runtime engine to your PortableApps.com-enabled device for use with portable apps like OpenOffice.org Portable, all without any Java runtime on the local PC. This release updates Java to the latest version. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format for easy use from any portable device and integration with the PortableApps.com Suite. And it's completely free.
The above installs jre in:
<your portable programs dir>\CommonFiles\Java

To use this JRE with Eclipse (assuming eclipse.exe is in <your portable programs dir>\<eclipsedir>\) run it with
-vm ..\CommonFiles\Java\bin\javaw command line switch.

This way eclipse will start without Java installed on local PC and you won't have to keep another copy of jre in
<your portable programs dir>\<eclipsedir>\jre directory.

Evidently we didn't actually need portable java for this one...
Installation Process for USB Drive
You can have Eclipse and Java on a USB driver and run Eclipse from a PC with a USB port. Keep in mind that it can be slow to access Eclipse following this approach. To get Eclipse working in an USB Drive:

1. Copy the Eclipse folder to the USB Drive.
2. Copy the Java JDK (e.g., C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16) from your PC to the USB Drive.
3. Bring up Eclipse and define the jre present in the drive as the one to use for projects.

(source)
I tested PortableApps' JRE with initial success but after the program started I closed it and it wouldn't start again.
  • Procedure:
    1. Download and extract zip file (eclipse-SDK-3.6.1-win32.zip)
    2. Create a folder "jre" inside the extracted folder
    3. Copy the "bin" folder from inside Portable Java into the "jre" folder
    4. Run eclipse.exe
This failure may be caused by my testing environment (a stripped-down XP SP3 install) so I'll have to retry this at some point in the future or uninstall java on my main machine.

It'll be coming shortly: http://portableapps.com/node/22236

You just need Java Portable alongside it.

Quick update about this: Currently at developer test 1 status. Response so far looks good. If there are any Eclipse developers here on PFW I'd be curious to hear what you think.
