Confusing Messages in Eclipse Plugin

         Key: GERONIMO-1834
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Bug
    Security: public (Regular issues) 
  Components: eclipse-plugin  
 Environment: Eclipse WTP 1.0.2 RC2, Windows XP
    Reporter: Arthur Ryman

I was testing the Geronimo server adapter. The good news is that it works. The bad news is
that I had to struggle. There are two confusing messages on the New Server Runtime wizard

1. The "Application Server Installation Directory" field is a problem. It is initially empty
and the wizard displays the message "Missing classpath entry \bin\server.jar". I though maybe
I had to install the server so I tried to click the "Download and Install" button, but it
didn't click. I assume you disabled it, but it wasn't grayed out so I thought there was a
bug. Same for the radio buttons to select Tomcat or Jetty. I was getting frustrated at this
point, so I thought maybe the missing jar was already downloaded with the server adapter.
I clicked the "Browse" button and went to the server adapter plugin directory and select the
lib directory. This didn't remove the "missing classpath" message, but at least not that the
directory field wasn't empty, I could finally click the "Download and Install" button.

Please use a better message. If the directory field is empty, say "Please enter the directory
where Geronimo is currently installed or where you would like it to be installed."

2. After I downloaded Geronimo, the wizard displayed a warning message that said only 1.4
JVMs were supported. However, I selected a 1.4 JVM, the IBM JDK 1.4.2. I still got the warning.
Please defect the JVM level and display the correct message.
