Possible Eclipse 3.3.0 (M6) bug with WTP / org.apache.geronimo [message #192289] Wed, 09 May 2007 16:52 Go to next message

I am trying to develop a Servlet project with Eclipse and Apache Tomcat. I

but it is written for Eclipse 3.2 and I ran into a problem when I tried it
with Eclipse 3.3.0 (M6) bug:

At the Europa Discovery Site, after picking WST and JST, “Select Required”
did not pick any additional features. I thought that was ok and proceeded
without the other features that “Select Required” had added in that
tutorial. In a later step (still following the tutorial), when I got to
the New Server Runtime Wizard, this list appeared:
HTTP Server
[red square icon] JS22 Runtime Library
[red square icon] Preview

This did not match the list from the tutorial, so I clicked on the
“Download Additional Server Adapters” link above that, and downloaded

I was hoping that would add Apache to this list (matching the tutorial)
but it did not. I was then experimenting and returned to Europa Discovery
Site, and when I pick anything (like Java Persistence), an error appears
that indicates the geronimo install is not complete:

org.apache.geronimo.feature (1.2.0) requires plug-in

After a few hours of experimenting with Eclipse, I managed to revert
Eclipse to a configuration before the geronimo.feature installation, and
Eclipse will once again accept other plug-ins.

What is the right way to install WST so that one can develop a Servlet
with Eclipse and Apache Tomcat?

If I was on the right track, please let me know and I will file a bug
report on the geronimo issue.

This issue is holding up a JBuilder->Eclipse transition for our 7-person
web development team (, so any advice would be greatly

You may want to try downloading WTP 2.0 M6 along with the necessary
dependencies from the WTP download site.
