Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511) Provide zip download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with requisites
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2008 01:55:44 GMT


Kevan Miller commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511:

Seems like a reasonable request to me. Unfortunately, doesn't mean it's a simple request --
seems like it would be a fair amount of work.

I'm not sure what Donald finds so objectionable. License-wise, doesn't seem like there's anything
that would prevent it. As you've pointed out, it's been done before...

Is it really 5 installs? I thought it was two -- Ganymede+WTP and GEP. Still twice as much
as you'd like. ;-)  That said, seems like it's going to be hard to justify the amount of work.
Interesting to hear from the GEP crew... Are others interested in the same capability? Anybody
interested in contributing to the effort?

> 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.
