Introduction

The Oracle Tuxedo Plug-in for Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 adds Oracle Tuxedo development support to the Oracle Solaris Studio IDE. This support lets you use the features of the IDE to quickly and easily develop Oracle Tuxedo SCA and ATMI applications.

The IDE works with your separately installed Oracle Tuxedo so that you can create, build, run, and debug application, server, component, and client projects.

The following sections introduce you to the basics of a project in the IDE, and describe how to install the plug-in and its prerequisite software.

 


Oracle Solaris Studio and the IDE

Oracle Solaris Studio comprises a suite of tools for application development on Oracle Solaris and Linux operating environments, including C, C++, and Fortran compilers, the dbx debugger, and performance and code analysis tools.

The Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 IDE (Integrated Development Environment) provides modules for creating, editing, building, and debugging C, C++, and Fortran applications using a graphical user interface and the Oracle Solaris Studio compilers and tools.

 


Using Tuxedo Projects in the IDE

In the Oracle Solaris Studio IDE, all development has to take place within a project. A project is a group of C, C++, or Fortran files, and the settings with which you build, run, and debug those source files.

The IDE stores all of the information about your project in makefiles, a properties file, and a few XML configuration files. You can build and run your projects outside the IDE exactly the same as inside the IDE.

The Oracle Studio IDE includes several project templates that are used when creating new projects. The Oracle Solaris Studio Tuxedo plug-in for the IDE adds templates and support for Oracle Tuxedo projects for SCA and ATMI applications.

 


Installing and Setting Up the Plug-in and Its Prerequisites

The Oracle Solaris Studio Oracle Tuxedo plug-in requires that you have Oracle Solaris Studio and Oracle Tuxedo installed on an Oracle Solaris 10, Linux, or Oracle Solaris 11 platform. It also requires an IDE patch, which is provided with the plug-in.

Installing Oracle Solaris Studio and Oracle Tuxedo

Before installing the plug-in, you must install Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3.

Installing on an Oracle Solaris 10 or Linux Platform

To install Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 on an Oracle Solaris 10 or Linux platform:

  2. Accept the license agreement, and download either the package installer or the tarfile for your platform.
  3. If you downloaded the package installer, unpack it with the following command and then follow the instructions in the Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Installation Guide to install Oracle Solaris Studio in the default installation directory /opt. If you downloaded the tarfile, which extracts the installed version of Oracle Solaris Studio software (no packages), unpack it in the directory of your choice with the following command:
  4. bzcat download_directory/SolarisStudio12.3-OS-PLATFORM-FORMAT.tar.bz2 | /bin/tar -xf -

Installing on an Oracle Solaris 11 Platform

To install Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 on an Oracle Solaris 11 platform:

  1. On the Oracle Certificate Requests page (https://pkg-register.oracle.com/register/status), request an Oracle Solaris Studio certificate.
  2. Accept the Software License Agreement.
  3. Follow the instructions on the Certificate Information page to download the key and certificate and install them, install the Oracle Solaris Studio publisher, and then install the Oracle Solaris Studio packages.
