Hi all,

I'm getting a little desperate here. I would really like to play around
with the Native Application Builder, but can't seem to get it installed
correctly. The last two messages in the NAB newsgroup are both from me,
seperated by about 3 months, and neither one was answered.

NAB doesn't appear to be available from an update site so I just
downloaded the zip file and unzipped it in my eclipse directory. I also
downloaded and installed WideStudio/MWT per the instructions. NAB-related
JAR files show up in the features and plugins directories, but Eclipse
doesn't seem to know anything about it. The NAB perspective doesn't show
up.

A clue emerged when I opened the PDE perspective to check the Plug-ins
view. Two errors appeared:

Unable to find feature.xml in directory:
/usr/local/eclipse/features/org.eclipse.nab.mwt.native.win32 _0.9.9.200806181757.jar

Unable to find feature.xml in directory:
/usr/local/eclipse/features/org.eclipse.nab.mwt_0.9.9.200806 181757.jar

The relevant system information is:
eclipse.buildId=I20080617-2000
java.version=1.6.0_03
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86, WS=gtk, NL=en_US
Command-line arguments: -os linux -ws gtk -arch x86 -clean

So why are those two archives missing feature.xml and what do I do about
it?

TIA,

Doug

Hi Doug,

I've forwarded your message to Shigeki, the project lead for NAB. I will
find out what he's not actively monitoring the newsgroup.

The problem you're having is that you need to install the MWT widget
library. Shigeki can supply some instructions.

Thanks, Doug. I finally did get a response from Shigeki and got the
problem resolved. Turns out there's an update site for NAB that hadn't
been publicized. I used that and everything is fine now.
