Hi Joe -
You may have already seen this but your issue is very close to the 
problem posted by JavaJosh earlier with the same subject line.  The 
archive of the begining report is at:
There were responses which I do not see in the archives yet so am 
pasting here in case it is of help:

>>From the output you've shown below it appears that you have the 3 plugins installed,
however I'm not sure why you are having the problem.  The version of Eclipse I have is 3.1.0.
When I look at the configuration details of my installation it shows all three plugins in
the registry as well as in the configured plugins section.  I noticed it does not show
the UI or Doc plugins in the registry section for you.
Later today I'll install 3.1.2 and see if I run into the same problems you are.
As a quick suggestion that might help, try restarting eclipse with the -clean option.
"eclipse.exe -clean"

Any reason for not loading/starting the plug-ins will typically be 
written to this .log file.
