Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511) Provide zip download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with requisites
Date Mon, 08 Sep 2008 22:53:44 GMT


Jürgen Weber commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511:

I'd just like to download for each new server version a fitting complete Eclipse-Geronimo

Look, Apache Directory Studio gives a choice:

Download the complete package, one tar.gz and you are up and running:

or do it the slightly harder way and get the Plugin:

But for Directory Studio it's only one feature whereas for the Geronimo you go the hard way
and have to install five in the right versions.

Or, compare see the PHP Development Tools, you can get each required plugin on its own (the
Geronimo Plugin way) or PDT All-in-One (my suggested way):

BTW, anybody thought of the name "Geronimo Studio" ?

> Please provide a zip / tar.gz download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with all requisites,
inclusive a stripped-down Eclipse itself.
> The zip should not contain eclipse as root folder but rather eclipseGeronimo to not overwrite
the default Eclipse installation.
> The download options described in
> require that WTP and some more are installed. Installing WTP is error-prone, as it has
lots of dependencies you need in the right version. 
> Installing via Eclipse-Help-Software Updates does not work either as the Update manager
is not smart enough to install requisites:
> Geronimo v1.0 Server Adapter (2.0.0) requires feature "org.eclipse.jst (2.0.0)", or compatible
> The given ant script does not work behind our firewall, and I am not keen on figuring
out how the firewall options of ant work.
