Hello,
trying to install WebTools in Helios through update manager, I find a
lot of different packages that confuse me.

For instance, there are:

1) JST Server Adapters 3.2.0.v201005241530-777HFGPCcNBDiBgIc4BA8
2) JST Server Adapters 3.2.0.v201005241530-208Z7w31211419
3) WST Server Adapters 3.2.0.v201005241510-51EoAkF77g8HBSc

What's the difference between 1) and 2)?
What's the difference between JST and WST Server Adapters?

Thanks in advance,
Mauro.

They confuse me too ... and I created them :(
We obviously need to improve the names we give these, but basically
you need all three for most normal WTP use. You can tell a little more
if you get "properties" for each, and see its full feature ID (instead
of just names).

The "wst vs. jst" distinction is that wst is for "non java ee" server
adapters, such as HTTPD only servers).

The two JST ones exist because we started work to have one basic,
required set ... and another "extended" set which would have some old,
legacy server adapters in it (which would be optional, but we never did
finish that work ... so I'd recommend getting both, for now, since
getting just the one basic, required set has not really been tested).
