-=====Eclipse Setup for CSU students ===== +===== Option 1 - Eclipse Setup on CS Department Machines ===== 
-The eclipse environment with all necessary plug-ins is available in the AlphaZ project directory. The following script will start the eclipse with AlphaZ installed.\\+You must be a CSU student with access to the CS deparment machines to do this. An eclipse environment with all necessary plug-ins is available in the AlphaZ project directory. Run the following in a bash terminal to add the AlphaZ project directory to your path:
 <code bash> <code bash>
-#!/bin/bash+echo 'export PATH=/s/chopin/h/proj/AlphaZ/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc 
 +source ~/.bashrc 
 +</code>
  
-#Path to the eclipse -- should NOT be changed +Then launch Eclipse with the following command

-=====Eclipse Setup Using Plugins===== 
- 
-  - AlphaZ requires Java 8 or later and a Unix system (Linux or Mac OSX). If Java 8 is not installed on your machine, install Java from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index-jsp-138363.html.

For older versions of Eclipse use URL: https://www.cs.colostate.edu/AlphaZ/update-sites/<target>/site.xml where <target> is code name of the Eclipse distribution. i.e., neon). 
-  - You should see several items including "AlphaZ Environment" and "AlphaZ Features".

 ===== Common Pitfalls=== ===== Common Pitfalls===
- 
- 
-You may have some error connecting to the repository through eclipse 
-  * When you run a *.cs file, if you see an error containing "com.google.common" then try again after removing "com.google.guava_21.0.0.v20170206-1425.jar" file from Eclipse/plugins directory. 
-  * When your connection gets lost while trying to connect: 
-     * Go to ''"Preferences→Team→SVN"'' and change the SVN interface to ''"SVNKit(Pure Java)"'' and try again. 
-     * The default SVN interface uses JNI bindings and it may not work depending on the machine. Pure Java version should.
