Error occurs during installation archive.

Eclipse platform is : 3.6.1

I try to install archive from the instal new software choice of the Help menu, and select a new repository archive.

I try two archives :
wtp-sdk-R-3.2.0-20100615235519.zip
wtp-sdk-R-3.2.2-20100915173744.zip

In th two cases, the error occurs :
could not find jar:file:/<Archive name>

Perhaps it is not the good way to load a archive ?
Perhaps it is not the good archives ?

So, what is the good way ?
So, what are the good archives ?

Thank's for your feed back.

Regards.

ML

Those zips are not the kind of archives for "installing software".

There are a couple of options.

You can install stuff from those traditional zips, by unzipping them
first into a temporary directory, and then "install software" from
"local" and specify that temporary directory (I don't recall, it might
have to be <temp directory>/eclipse ... you'll have to try both.

And, don't forget, you can get the same stuff (for 3.2.2) by using the
build-in repo at /releases/helios (the disadvantage is that the http
connections take longer, usually ... usually much much longer).

Next, also, on those 3.2.2 download pages, we do have zipped archives
available, but to get all of WTP, you have to get 3 of them, such as
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/webtools /downloads/drops/R3.2.2/R-3.2.2-20100915173744/repos/jst-sdk -buildrepo-R-3.2.2-20100915173744.zip
(see the "buildrepo" in the name). There's be one for "wst" and "dali"
also. These 3 file approach is just an old left over from the way we
have historically organized our builds.

In more recent builds, towards 3.2.3 and 3.3, we do have one archived
repo for everything, but that code is not officially released yet and is
only for early testers. Those archive files have names with "repo" in
their names, instead of "buildrepo".
