Cannot create web project [message #197998] Wed, 08 August 2007 15:53 Go to next message

I tried WTP+Eclipse all-in-one install (released on June 26), I also tried
Eclipse for J2EE Developer (version 3.3) then installed WTP package via
software update. In both cases, when I started Eclipse and tried to create
a web project by going to File > New > Other, I did not see any choice for
for project. The menu items for web project did not appear!

I use JDK 1.6. I don't think this should affect eclipse.

Any idea about how I can get Web Project menu items to show up?

I am not sure why it would cause problems to explicitly install WTP on
top of Eclipse IDE for Java EE developers, but Eclipse IDE for Java EE
developers already includes WTP plugins.

All you need to do is expand the eclipse-jee-europa-win32.zip file.

Make sure that Eclipse is launching on a Java 5 VM or newer. If it is
launched on a 1.4 VM, a lot of the WTP functionality will not be available.

You can control which VM Eclipse chooses when it launches by using a -vm
switch in the eclipse.ini file.

Thanks Konstantin:
I was picking a 1.4 jvm some where along the way of a very long path.
Thanks to Windows XP,
it makes it virtually impossible to gracefully manage the path environment.
Apparently setting the run time environment in
Eclipse: Windows -> Preferences-> Installed JREs-> Excecution Environment
to a 6.0 is not enough to pick the right jvm

While looking at
Eclipse: help-> about Eclipse platform -> Configration Details
I noticed that it is picking a 1.4 jvm.
That gave me some clues knowing where that jvm came from (Oracle 10 client).

Lesson learned: Make sure the right jvm in the path environment is picked

Hope this helps some one else
