Subject Re: Geronimo WTP client for eclipse doesn't work as expected
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 16:03:55 GMT
Oh ok, that is the one of the 5 prereqs for the GEP. If you following my 
recommendations in my previous note and start with a new Eclipse installation 
and workspace, and then get the other 4 prereqs, you'll be good to go !!!! BTW, 
I haven't been able to get back to your previous  republish problem, but have 
now just opened a JIRA to address the problem (lest I forget) and will try to 
get to get back to it later today....
