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


Ted Kirby commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511:

It turns out that WTP knows about, 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 (,
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
> 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.
