I am a beginner and I have followed the step to set up the zk studio with tomcat 7.0 in eclipse and using zk-bin-7.0.0. Then, I went to www.zkoss.org/download/zkcalendar to download the source code of the calendar. I stuck at here: 1. what are the difference between the 3 source codes?(bin, src, demo) 2.I downloaded all of them but don't know how to start with importing them to create my own calendar for my website.

I spent a few hours but still no luck. I hope you guys could give your helping hands ;-( Thank you!

do you use a builder tool like maven?

must i use this or not? If i have to use it, then i edit the pom.xml by adding some dependency and repository? But, to edit it , i have to create a project with it. I really dont know how to launch my project,,,create a new zk project(i hv zk studio) or a web dynamic web project??

You have to create new project => maven project => web application.

Oke why maven (or other building tool)?

First of all, you shall know that there are jars that you need to add as dependency. With maven if you add for example ZK, this will also download and add all the dependencies that ZK needs to run. You can do it yourself but you have to search what dependencys ZK need, what version of jar it must be,... With maven this headache is over. Just add your dependency you need, maven will automaticly search and install all (sub)dependency.

Now I use netbeans, so for eclipse you have to take a look here to integrate maven

Here is a download link of a rar file with contains a small maven project (from the small talk chat with MVVM).

You can download it and change whatever you want, so you can test the calendar (add the calendar dependency as in the link you provided in your first comment).

Greetz chill.

If you are using Eclipse EE Maven should be already integrated. (Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers, Version: Kepler Service Release 1)
