Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511) Provide zip download of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin complete with requisites
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2008 21:18:44 GMT


Ted Kirby commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-511:

That news item has a bad link.  I recently updated the install doc.  Tim, can you update that
news link, or tell me how to do it?

>From the Geronimo home page, choose the Development Tools sub-project link from the left-hand
nav, near the bottom.  That page gives pre-reqs and install instructions.  I updated the installation
page to point back to the pre-req section.  I think I will change this again to put the pre-reqs
on the install page, as my plan is to have this info together for each release.

I don't think you have to define a geronimo update site in order for "download additional
server adapters" to show Geronimo.  I don't recall ever having to do this.  I verified it
with a fresh install of Ganymede.

I will work to improve the doc.  Tim also has some interest in this JIRA.  He may be distracted
by upcoming vacation and GEP 2.1.3 release, but I expect to see his comments here soon...

> 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.
