Code Examples

The uDig SDK (and development team) makes many useful examples. This page covers several ways of getting the examples into your workspace so you can review and run them.

Please note these instructions can be followed to access both code examples (ie not always runnable) and tutorials from the training course. In addition you can use this technique to load up parts of the uDig application into your workspace for study and fixing.

We will use the org.locationtech.udig.tutorials.examples plug-in in the instructions provided below; you can use the same technique to import any plug-in for study.
