Hello world!

I was importing the SWT zip file when Eclipse told me: "No projects are found to import"

What's wrong?

Eclipse version: Eclipse IDE for Java Developers

Version: 1.2.2.20100216-1730
Build id: 20100218-1602

SWT .zip file version: swt-3.6M6-win32-win32-x86

Thanks world!

Wink

It's not really clear to me what you tried. Could you please explain
in more detail, what you were doing?

Once i downloaded the .zip file from SWT project webpage, I opened Eclipse and I tried to import it into my workspace.

I clicked in the "import..." option.

I selected the approppiate .zip file.

At this point, Eclipse showed the message: "No projects are found to import".

What did I do wrong?


Thanks!

BRs,

Abelardo.

inside the zip file there is an swt.jar file. it is tha file that you need to add to your buil dpath if you want to use SWT

The ZIP you downloaded can not be imported. You should extract the .zip
and include the jars to your build path.

Thanks Bernd van Velsen.

Finally, I did it you have commented.

Then, this message appeared:

Snippet164 cannot be resolved to a type

at this line of code:

Image image = new Image (display, Snippet164.class.getResourceAsStream ("eclipse.png"));


(I added both "swt-debug.jar" and "swt.jar" files)


Brs,

Abelardo.

Hi Tom,

According with the instructions showed at this page:

http://www.eclipse.org/swt/eclipse.php

the .zip downloaded from this page:

http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/eclipse/ downloads/drops/S-3.6M6-201003121448/swt-3.6M6-win32-win32-x 86.zip

(for windows, obviously)

can be imported by using this option from Eclipse.


Brs,

Abelardo.

Thanks for pointing this out, these instructions are no longer valid, I've
logged https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=310826 .

Snippet164 is not in an swt jar. I notice that it's referencing external
file "eclipse.png", so your best bet is probably to retrieve the
org.eclipse.swt.snippets project from CVS. For instructions on connecting
to eclipse's CVS repository see the first step of
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/cvs.php .

Thanks for Round 1 of help -- finding the SWT Binary and Source page. (updating the tutorial would *really* help.)

Now for round 2 -- even specifying the swt.jar far STILL does not allow me to import the SWT stuff. I still get the "No projects are found to import" error. Sad

So now what do I do?

Why take away the import as project way of including SWT into java projects. I have several workspaces with multiple utility projects. When I upgrade Eclipse being able to delete the old SWT project and import the new one into my workspace works really well. With one operation all my projects get updated.

I personally don't really want to go back to setting up macros to point to SWT .jar files and then add them by hand to each of my projects.

Is it possible to change this decision? Is there something we all gain from doing it this new way that I am missing?

Thanks,

Ian
