This is the source tree for Etch. It is organized as follows:
build.xml - top-level ant build script
build.dependecies - locations for jars this compile depends on - static build properties
compiler/ - core compiler
build-support/ - common ant scripts shared by all modules
plugins/ - extensions that embed the compiler, e.g. ant, maven, etc.
scripts/ - common scripts for eclipse
util/ - shared java classes
tests/ - functional tests
examples/ - Etch application examples
chat/ - simple IM application
distmap/ - example implementation of a distributed map in etch
perf/ - etch client/server performance test
example/ - minimal example
installers/ - project for NSIS installer and tar.gz, .zip archives
binding-xml - xml binding
binding-java - java-language binding
binding-csharp - C#-language binding
Etch bindings
Each binding is factored into its own structure into the build tree. The intend is to provide an easy pattern for potential binding authors to emulate. Essentially each binding has two components:
- compiler/
- runtime/
The 'compiler' is always implemented in Java and in coded to implement a backend interface for the target of choice
The 'runtime' is coded in the target language. The most useful language bindings implement identical functionality as the Java and C# bindings. Non-languages bindings (like binding-xml) may not have a runtime component at all.
