Introduction

Backport175 comes with an Eclipse Plugin. It has been tested on Eclipse 3.0 but should work with Eclipse 3.1.

Installing

Use the Eclipse plugin manager to get the plugin from the following update site: http://backport175.codehaus.org/downloads/eclipse

Features

Once installed the plugin allow to add the backport175 nature to your project. Select your project, right click on it and turn on the nature.

When you will build, the annotation will be compiled into the compiled class file just a the Java 5 compiler would do with Java 5 annoations.

Errors (like bad annotation syntax) are reported as compilation errors and will appear in the "Problem" view.
You will have to fix them or Eclipse cannot build succesfully your project.

Errors location are marked with an error marker.
Successfully compiled are marked with an @ icon.
Ignored annotation (f.e. regular JavaDoc) are not marked at all.

Disabling

Simply remove the backport175 nature from your project.

Limitations

The @ icon is ugly. Send us your contributions.
