I'm using the WTP update site
(http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/repository/helios) to install WTP
3.2.1, however WTP is not working properly after that.
I feel there are some missing packages; for instance I can't find any
JST Server Adapters for 3.2.1 in the WTP update site; in the Helios
update site, instead, there are two packages with this name, however
they're marked as version 3.2.0; same thing for Eclipse Faceted Project
Framework JDT Enablement
The result is that, for isntance, there's no File | New | Web folder
category to create a Dynamic Web Project, no Java EE perspective and
other plugins that depend on WTP (Spring Tool Suite, for instance) do
not work properly (missing features in the UI).
How to solve that?
BTW: please consider that before trying to install 3.2.1 from the update
manager, I was using a manually-downloaded WTP pre-3.2.1-weekly build
using the dropins folder, because I needed an important performance fix.
However, before installing WTP with the update manager, I completely
removed WTP from the dropins folder...
