Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-204) Change pre-requisite from current "wtp-all-in-one-sdk-* (266MB)" to "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (125MB)"

Shiva Kumar H R commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-204:

Used latest GEP (built from trunk) with "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (126MB)"
and tested the instructions at
on Apache Geronimo v2.1, and all steps are working correctly!

So GEP 2.1's pre-requisite from now on will be just a single file:
1) "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" available from
(This has Eclipse 3.3.2, WTP 2.0.2, DTP 1.5.2, EMF 2.3.2, GEF 3.3.2 all packed in a single
file of just 126MB! So no more hassles of downloading multiple pre-requisite files)

Home page must be updated accordingly.

> Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in (GEP) v2.0 currently has following pre-requisites:
> 1 -- Eclipse Classic 3.3
> 2 -- Web Tools Platform (WTP) 2.0
> 3 -- Data Tools Platform (DTP) 1.5
> 4 -- Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) 2.3
> 5 -- Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) 3.3
> A wtp-all-in-one-sdk-* bundle that includes all the above 5 pre-requisites can be downloaded
> and it has a size of around 260MB.
> starting with Europa release ( have a new
package by name "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" with a size of just "125MB" (no source
bundles included) and has all the pre-requistes for GEP.
> GEP should be updated to utilize this new package of smaller download size.
> (This was attempted in GERONIMODEVTOOLS-180 and due to some problems faced, this has
been deferred to GEP 2.1).
