Hello everyone,

I'm trying to deploy a Xtext project as Deployable plug-ins and fragments, but I'm getting this horrible error and I've no clue. I have searched the forums, but I have not found anything useful for me. Here is the error message:

/home/rafa/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/temp/org.eclipse.pde.container.feature/assemble.org.eclipse.pde.container.feature.linux.gtk.x86.xml:88: The following error occurred while executing this line:

Ok. I downloaded a different Eclipse package which includes the missing API Tool jars and everything worked great.

I had the same error. If someone else comes along: You have an Eclipse (manually built?) where the plugin set is incomplete. You need org.eclipse.pde.api.tools.

I had the same problem. You need to install some PDE dev tools if you have just a plain Java Dev Eclipse variant. Xtext (??) guys should do more detection and provide more meaningful assistance Interestingly, if you run the plugin.xml, like into a separate aplication as is suggested in Xtext documentation, this worked, just the installation of the plugin to the same Eclipse instance holding the original Xtext project failed.

I installed these and it started to work:

  • PDE/API Tools Environment Descriptions
  • PDE/API Tools Environment Descriptions CDC/Foundation 1.1
  • PDE/API Tools Environment Descriptions J2SE 16
  • PDE/API Tools Environment Descriptions OSGi minimum 12

I would be quite interested to know the minimal set.
