Virgo Tools for Eclipse exists? [message #632963] Thu, 14 October 2010 20:08 Go to next message

Dear All:

I am carefully following the instructions here:

http://www.eclipse.org/virgo/documentation/virgo-documentati on-2.1.0.M06-incubation/docs/virgo-programmer-guide/htmlsing le/virgo-programmer-guide.html#tooling

and have installed the SpringSource Tool Suite (on Eclipse 3.5) for x64_64 Linux.

Unfortunately, there is no Virgo Tools for Eclipse in the referenced springsource update site.

I am doing New->Server->dm 2.0, and it complains:

" .version file in lib directory is missing key 'dm.server.version'. Make sure to point to a dm Server 2.0 installation."

I can fix this by editing my lib/.version file manually to:
virgo.kernel.version=2.1.0.M06-incubation
dm.server.version=2.1.0.M06-incubation
virgo.server.version=2.1.0.M06-incubation


but I am a little confused by the documentation. Does the Virgo Tools for Eclipse exist or does the documentation precede its actual existence? (And if it exists, where is it available?)

Thank you
Misha Smile

UPDATE: This hack does not quite seem to work as the server won't start anyhow from within SpringSource Tool Suite Sad Thank you

STS has the Virgo tooling built in alongside the dm Server tooling, but there is a new EclipseRT classification that you may not have noticed when creating a server.

Please try creating another server and look near the top of the list for EclipseRT. It should "just work", no hacking about required.

Thank you for your thorough reply.

Unfortunately, I checked and there is no EclipseRT classification Sad

Furthermore, I just did a Help->Check for Updates and no updates were available.

I am stumped...

Thank you
Misha

EDIT: This post helped
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=tree&th=188506 &S=fe6af6c64353deb3592c81b71c8b768b#page_top

Specifically, I just took a clean Eclipse 3.6 J2EE install and used this update site:
http://dist.springsource.com/milestone/TOOLS/update/e3.6/

Installed SpringSource dm Server Tools (required) version 2.5.0.201008251000-M3

At least EclipseRT now shows up in New->Server->Server

EDIT: Also had to modify Run->Debug Configurations for Virgo Web Server at localhost and add the following to VM arguments to avoid PermGen errors:
-Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m

EDIT: To get EclipseRT server support for SpringSource Tool Suite 2.3.2 available from:
http://www.springsource.com/downloads/sts?sid=781638

I had to add _both_ the following update sites:

Atlassian Connector for Eclipse 3.4 and 3.5 - http://update.atlassian.com/atlassian-eclipse-plugin/e3.5

SpringSource Update Site for Eclipse 3.5 - http://dist.springsource.com/milestone/TOOLS/update/e3.5

Further, I had to install Atlassian Connector/Atlassian JIRA Connector which pulled in some SpringSource updates from the milestone site. Definitely not "out of the box" Sad

Perhaps this issue should be raised with the SpringSource people or changed in the documentation?

Thank you
Yours
Misha

Hmmm. Did you try following the exact steps in the Virgo programmer guide? I think you gave the impression earlier that you were carefully following these steps, but it's easy to make assumptions.

Also something may have regressed in the latest version of STS for all I know. We can only test with certain versions of STS and we certainly can't keep up with every release.

If you're confident you are following the programmer guide pretty closely, please raise a bug against Virgo describing exactly what steps to take to reproduce the problem and we'll look into it. (If we get into genuine tooling issues, we will need to involve our tooling experts, but let's not presume that will be necessary for now.)

Hi Misha

I just went through and tried the installation steps from the programmer guide and they are well out of date. I will update them under bug 327864.

For now on Helios, please use update site:

http://dist.springsource.com/milestone/TOOLS/update/e3.6/

Apologies for the inconvenience!

Regards,
Glyn

You're welcome. I'm glad you raised this issue so we didn't release with incorrect instructions.
