Subject [jira] Reopened: (AXIS2-3396) docs & website repeatedly refer to Eclipse Plugin; but never specify NAME or WHERE IT IS LOCATED.
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 09:59:31 GMT


Thomas Whitmore reopened AXIS2-3396:

'Installation Instructions', need to specify plugin located in  /docs/tools  folder. 

Your users cannot possibly find the thing, hidden two folders deep in an incorrect location.
Is this not clear to understand?

Or put it in a  /tools folder.

I checked the TOC and installation instructions, they still don't lead specifically to the
plugin or specify where in the dist it's located, 
How on earth do you expect your long-suffering users to even find the thing?

Jesus Christ, i pray for all the hundreds or thousands of wasted hours and repeated searches
& reading of the quote 'installation instructions'..   which mention everything except,
how to install it.

> It's impossible to find.  And without specifying either NAME or LOCATION, there's nothing
much to search for.
> Why not try using a NAME occasionally, when referring to things?
> I find that when talking about city-wide public transport, saying you caught the 'BUS'
makes it vastly more clear what kind of timetables to search for.
> Also, the Eclipse Plugin -- this is referred to 4 or 5x, never it's NAME or LOCATION
-- appears to be located in a .zip under /docs/tools;  within the binary distribution at least.
This ain't the correct place to put it, in the slightest..  though as you (insult deleted)
probably travel to work by public hang-glider (humorous insult deleted)  I'm not surprised.
> Try putting plugins & tooling, under (gasp) a 'tools' folder.
> Yeah I know.. it's hard working on this stuff, to keep an external 'outside user's' perspective.
But try using names.. they really are useful, for cross-referencing and confirmation as well,
even once the actual object or artefact in question has been specified. once.
