I am having difficulties installing OSEE.

I have Version: 3.4.1, Build id: M20080911-1700, on a Windows 2000 SP4
box, with Java Version 1.6.0_11 from Sun Microsystems Inc.

Starting from:
http://www.eclipse.org/osee/documentation/installation/eclip se_install.php
I do the following:
Download org.ecilpse.osee_integration_build_incubation.zip.
and get org.ecilpse.osee_integration_build_incubation.zip which is 38 MB.
The install says I need the dependencies:
eclipse-reporting-ganymede-SR2-win32.zip
which downloads: eclipse-reporting-ganymede-SR2-win32.zip which is 200
MB.

I then add both of these new local folders for installation and then
select install. I get a message:
The software items you selected may not b e valid with your current
installation. Do you want to open the wizard anyway to review the
selections?


Continuing, I get:
Install Window
Cannot complete the request. See the details.
Eclipse CVS Client is already installed, so an update will be performed
instead.
Eclipse Help System is already installed, so an update will be performed
instead.
Eclipse Java Development Tools is already installed, so an update will be
performed instead.
Eclipse Platform is already installed, so an update will be performed
instead.
Eclipse RCP is already installed, so an update will be performed instead.
Eclipse XML Editors and Tools is already installed, so an update will be
performed instead.
EMF - Eclipse Modeling Framework Core Runtime is already installed, so an
update will be performed instead.
. . and much more which end in:
Unsatisfied dependency: requiredCapability:
osgi.bundle/org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core/[1.2.1 ,1.3.0)
Unsatisfied dependency: [org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.ui
1.2.1.v200708232226] requiredCapability:
osgi.bundle/org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core/[1.2.1 ,1.3.0)

Not on the install page, but on the download page, there is an instruction:
When launching the client you must set the following java system
properties (i.e. include them in the command used to launch eclipse)
-Dosee.authentication.protocol=trustAll
-Dosee.arbitration.server=http://localhost:8089.

I don't know how to do this.

I want to use PostgreSQL but I can't tell if I need anything installed
before the OSEE or after.

Since I already of Eclipse installed with some other components, I don't
want to download the all in one and overwrite what I have.

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to perform the installation.

Hi Ray,

It sounds like the issue may be in how the
eclipse-reporting-ganymede-SR2-win32.zip was used.
eclipse-reporting-ganymede-SR2-win32.zip is the base eclipse (not an
archived update site) and should be unzipped to your local drive (to a
short path). Next launch Eclipse from that path and use the update
manager to update from the local archived update site downloaded from
http://osee.microdoc.com/downloads/osee/add-ons/0.7/osee.add .ons.updatesite.zip.
Then use the update manager to update from the local archived update site
downloaded from
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technolo gy/osee/updatesite/org.ecilpse.osee_integration_build_incuba tion.zip.

However it looks like you are trying to use an existing Eclipse base,
which is fine, but it means you will need to manually install the
dependencies that would have otherwise been provided by the base Eclipse
install "Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers." In other words the
features org.eclipse.gef, org.eclipse.draw2d, org.eclipse.birt,
org.eclipse.datatools, and org.apache.derby.core.

Please let me know whether this addresses what you ran into or if you have
any other questions.

Thanks,
Ryan

Ryan,

Thank you for your response. It looks like I am confused. I understand
that I am to copy the files to my machine but I didn't realise that I
needed to launch Eclpse from there. In fact, I don't know how I would do
that.

(I thought I was supposed to copy the files to my machine and then just
point Eclipse to that locale. Of course, that did not work.)

How do I launch Eclipse from the location where I saved the update files?
And one of them has subfolders so I guess I must just have to address the
top most folder. But again, how?

Ray,

I have updated the instructions at
http://www.eclipse.org/osee/downloads.php to be most clear and separated
out the instructions on System Requirements and Eclipse Dependencies which
have to be performed first. Please take a fresh look at these
instructions to see if they are now more clear.

Just to clarify, eclipse-reporting-ganymede-SR2-win32.zip is a full
Eclipse which also includes many dependencies that OSEE requires. So what
I mean about launch using Eclipse from there, is to unzip the contents of
eclipse-reporting-ganymede-SR2-win32.zip and launch the eclipse.exe from
the contents of this zip file.

Regards,
Ryan

Ryan,

I already have Eclipse installed. By executing eclipse from the zip, will
I have two installations? If so, can I combine them? Or, how to I get
the new one to the same configuration as the previous?

Thanks,
Ray

Ray,

You are correct that this would give you two Eclipse installations. The
alternative is to add the needed dependencies into your existing Eclipse
installation. Please see
http://www.eclipse.org/osee/documentation/installation/requi rements.php
for a list of OSEE dependencies.

Ryan
