Help with IDE setup on Mac OSX

I am having an issue setting up the IDE development environment on Mac OSX. I have followed the instructions from The error I am getting is the following:

Error: Could not find or load main class Development.openhab2-master.git.openhab-distro.features.openhab-demo-resources.src.main.resources

  • I have verified that this directory has been populated
  • I can build using “mvn install” from the openhab-distro directory successfully
  • No other build errors show up in Eclipse

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I spoke too soon on having no build errors. There are many of them.

From what I can tell, this seems to be an issue with the JRE being setup correctly. I have installed and verified the JDK is installed - here is my setup in Eclipse:

Again, any help would be appreciated!!

Hi all - I was able to resolve and posting the solution:

  • First, the were errors in the repository and deleting the projects with those errors resolve that issue.
  • Second, I installed in a directory where I had a space in the name, i.e. “/Volumes/Data/App Development/openhab2”. I guess that isn’t supported??
