Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-3095) Eclipse plugin conflict with Websphere Community Edition

Bruno Melloni updated GERONIMO-3095:
------------------------------------

       Priority: Minor  (was: Major)
    Description: 
Discovered it trying to compare Geronimo with Websphere Community Edition (Geronimo with supposedly
improved management screens and labeled as Websphere).  

Steps:
- Open Eclipse 3.2.2
- Go to Servers view
- Install new server support - for Geronimo and for Websphere Community Edition.
- Both "appear to install".

- If attempt to install both without Eclipse restart after each, the first one *does not*
show in the list of servers nor in the list of server plugins available for download (From
a fresh Eclipse install, I used Geronimo as the first server and Websphere CE as the second
- no sign of Geronimo afterwards in the list of servers or available server plugin downloads).

- If restart after each install, only the first one installed shows in the Server list afterwards,
the second one shows in list of server plugins available for download, but the install fails
with "Error occurred installing server: Could not download and install update feature." (From
another fresh Eclipse install I again used Geronimo as the first server and Websphere CE as
the second one - in this case Websphere CE does not show in the list of servers).

I suspect that the problem is caused by IBM failing to clearly differentiate its plugin from
the Apache-distributed Geronimo plugin thus confusing Eclipse, but it can still give the impression
that Geronimo is at fault and might be worth investigating and maybe requiring IBM (and future
Geronimo-based plugins from other vendors) to do a better job.

Workaround:
- Use two separate installs of Eclipse, one with Geronimo and one with Websphere.  Very annoying,
but functional.
