Oh! there seems to be a confusion here. Please see
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/moreinfo/compare.php

1) So "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" (125MB) is actually Eclipse
Platform + WTP & it's pre-reqs. Ideally this should have been 'the only'
pre-requisite for Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in (GEP). However we are currently
running into a problem using this (Geronimo v1.0 & v1.2 servers are not
appearing in the list of available servers). Hence we have deferred using
this until next GEP release i.e. 2.1. Please see GERONIMODEVTOOLS-180. I
guess not having another JIRA opened for this problem, is the source of
confusion. I will open a JIRA soon after this.

2) "Eclipse Classic" (140MB) is the one to be listed as the correct
pre-requisite here for GEP 2.0.
