Some plugins require certain java packages to be present in order to install successfully and function normally. And sometimes I just don't know which additional plugin to install in order to provide with the java packages needed. There stands only a little chance to install the correct plugins with the correct packages by accident. Any ideas to quickly find out package providers to choose from and avoid installing the wrong plugins and packages that do not contain the desired packages at all?

Well, I have noticed that in "Install New Software" window there's an option "Contact all update sites during install to find required software" to check which may help. This is expected to work but actually doesn't seem to solve the problem. On the contrary, it retards the installation of a new software if you have a long sheet of update sites, some of which's connection is terribly and painfully low.

You can disable the slower sites in your preferences, but you will need one enabled that provides a plug-in exporting the packages you're referring to.

Painful and primitive trials and errors. Anyone making dev in Eclipse easier?
