Prior to Mars, I would copy the *swt*.jar file from /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/ into my workspace and include this in my classpath for my standalone apps that included SWT tools. With Mars, I can no longer do this. I saw an FAQ on how to obtain one, but being locked behind a US gov't firewall with no access to the Internet from my development box, cloning a Git repository is not possible. Add to this that my disk space probably wouldn't permit something that large anyway. Add to this that I really don't want to have to learn Git just to build a lone Jar file.

All I need is a swt.jar file for version 4.5 (Mars) on my Linux RHEL6 box. Why is it now so difficult to obtain this??

Does anyone have a linux-swt-4.5.x.jar file that I can retrieve from my PC (which DOES have Internet access)?? (I am able to bring individual files through the firewall into the private network.)

thanks in advance.
Mark

Hi Mark,
The location for <ECLIPSE_ROOT>\plugins\*swt*.jar continues to be the same even with Eclipse 4.5(Mars) and we don't see any reason/plan to change this location.

I'm still confused. I'm clearing running Mars (4.5.0 - build 20150621-1200), and it is functioning fully and without errors, AFAICT. For years, I've been running eclipse from /usr/local/eclipse/. After this year's upgrade to Mars (on Sep 16, 2015), the "ps -ef" shows I'm running from /usr/local/jee-latest-released/eclipse/. I'll call this $EHOME. There is no $EHOME/plugins directory, so I figure that eclipse is getting all it's jars from /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/, but the most recent file in that directory is from 2014. I find the *swt*.jar file in there (and a myriad of other *.jar files), but they are the same ones as I've been using for the past 1.5 years. Using the find and locate commands, I am unable to discover where are the *.jar files are (aside from 2014's /usr/local/eclipse/plugins/)... particularly the *swt*.jar file so I can copy it into my project's distribution package. For now, I'm just using and copying 2014's *swt*.jar file. Where can I find 2015's jar??
