The link in the page for Image Magic is not working , current version of Image Magick(As of today - ImageMagick-6.5.3-3-Q16-windows-dll.exe) can be obtained from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows

Mrogers 17:17, 9 September 2010 (BST) There's a comment on the main page that the following does not work.  Should it be re-instated?


Install the Sysdeo Eclipse Tomcat Launcher plugin


Download the Sysdeo Eclipse Tomcat Launcher plugin. This handy plugin will allow us to configure, start, restart, and stop Tomcat from the Eclipse IDE. Unzip the plugin to the Eclipse plugins (e.g. C:\eclipse\plugins) directory for versions of Eclipse prior to v3.4, or in the dropins directory for v3.4 or higher. Restart Eclipse.

To configure the Sysdeo Tomcat plugin, visit Window-->Preferences-->Tomcat. Select your Tomcat version and set 'Tomcat home' to the base folder of your Tomcat installation that you would like to run Alfresco in (not the 'virtual' Tomcat installation). Within Tomcat's 'JVM Settings' you may need to set the following for your development environment:

Append to JVM Parameters:

 -server
-Xss256k
-Xms256m
-Xmx512m
-XX:NewSize=128M
-XX:MaxPermSize=128M

Classpath:

 {Absolute_Path_To_Tomcat}\shared\classes

The reason for the classpath entry above is, because on Windows, the custom configuration files within {Tomcat}\shared\classes\alfresco\extension were not being found by the application.
