RB Plugin User guide

JXPRESS

Screenshots shown in this online documentation are slightly older and hence slightly different than the actual download.

Requirements:
1. Windows2K. I have tested this in Windows XP only. Although the software is intended to be platform independent currently it is not because I am using some windows fonts in my tool. Will make the fonts configurable per locale later and then make this platform independent.
2. Java1.4 or Java1.5. Lower Java versions will cause problems. (I will make it compatible to lower versions later.)
3. Eclipse eclipse-SDK-3.1M2-win32 and the latest eclipse-SDK-3.1M3-win32. (Those are the versions I used.)

Instructions:
1. Unzip the file release and extract all plugins into the plugins directory of eclipse.
2. Delete the configuration folder
3. Start eclipse.
