There are a few options available when installing Galasa. Prerequisites vary, depending on the option that is chosen.
You can install Galasa for using in the command-line, for using in Eclipse, or for sharing with your department (using the Galasa zipped distribution).
There are benefits of installing Galasa for using in the command-line. Much of the configuration set-up that is required is done for you automatically by scripts, so less manual intervention is needed. You can then import the configuration into an IDE of your choice, rather than having to use Eclipse.
If you are using only Eclipse for your IDE, do not have restricted internet access and want to use open-source Galasa you might choose to install the Galasa Eclipse plug-in directly from the external update site for using in Eclipse.
If you do not have access to Maven Central, Eclipse Marketplace, and Docker Hub from your company network, you can use the Galasa zipped distribution.
If you are installing Galasa for using in the command-line, follow the instructions in the Getting started using the CLI documentation.
If you are installing Galasa for using in Eclipse, or if you are installing the zipped distribution of Galasa, follow the instructions in the Getting started using Eclipse documentation.
