Installing and Starting RTC Builder

Installing RTC Builder

RTC Builder is an Eclipse plugin. As such, it requires that Eclipse and supporting Eclipse plugins are installed first. See the Requirements section for download links. The Eclipse install is simply extracting the archive. Plugins should be copied into the plugins directory in the Eclipse directory. To install RTC Builder, copy its jar file (jp.go.aist.rtm.rtcbuilder_X.X.X.jar) into the eclipse/plugins directory in the directory you extracted the Eclipse archive to.
