Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511) Provide zip download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with requisites
Date Thu, 11 Sep 2008 22:11:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12630398#action_12630398
] 

Ted Kirby commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511:
--------------------------------------------

It turns out that WTP knows about http://www.apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/updates/, and
queries this (our) site for server adapters, specifically any features tagged with org.eclipse.wst.server.core.serverAdapter,
and then filter out any old versions.

In my test, I did use a freshly installed copy of Eclipse.  I have never heard about having
to add the update site URL for that function to work.  In our install instructions (http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC21/how-to-install-geronimo-eclipse-plugin.html),
the first option is to use Download Additional Server Adapters.  The second is to use our
eclipse update site.  If you have to add the update site, I figure you may as well install
with it using the instructions.

> 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 http://geronimo.apache.org/development-tools.html
> 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.
