First, I am running Mac OS X 10.5.1 (Leopard)

I would like to be able to use the

Help > Software Updates > Find and Install...

to get things installed...it just seems easier to go this route -
assuming that it works.

So, I select the

Search for new features to install

option and press 'Next >'.

I then select 'New Remote Site...' and enter

Name: PDT
URL: http://downloads.zend.com/pdt

I check:

Europa Discovery Site
PDT
The Eclipse Project Updates

and press 'Finish'.

The update manager searches for some stuff and I then get the 'Updates'
dialog.

In the 'Select the features to install' list, I see:

Europa Discovery Site
PDT
The Eclipse Project Updates
PDT Updates

I check & select PDT and get an error which states:

Zend Debugger Feature (5.2.12.v20071210) requires feature
"org.eclipse.php_feature (1.0.0)", or later version.

How can I install this using Help > Software Updates > Find and
Install...?

If I check & select PDT Updates, I get an error which states:

PDT Feature (1.0.1.v20071210-79-78E7QYGHEPYPG) requires feature
"org.eclipse.wst (2.0.0)", or compatible.

How can I install this using Help > Software Updates > Find and
Install...?

If I check and select either, both or neither 'PDT' and 'PDT Updates'
and press the 'Select Required', nothing extra is selected.

Should I be able to get this stuff installed using Help > Software
Updates > Find and Install...?

Did you do the "Select required" thing mentioned in the PDT/Install
FAQ/Wiki thing? I just installed PDT with it recently and that button
sorted out the dependencies (I believe).

Hi Eric,

The PDT project is also based on the Webtools project, which you also need
to install.
Add the following site:
http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/updates

Make sure it is checked along with Europa & PDT.
When you press the 'Select Required' the relevant feature should be checked.

Good luck,
Alon

Yes, if I check and select PDT & PDT Updates and then press 'Select
Required", nothing extra is selected.

If it matters, I am using Eclipse SDK Version 3.3.1.1 with Build id:
M20071023-1652.

Thanks. I'm sure that's another piece of the puzzle, however, when I try
to install Webtools, I get the error message:

WST Common UI (2.0.1.v200709110622-7C5EH2E9RvTVnijrspVz0bgOmfz-)
requires plug-in "org.eclipse.draw2d (3.2.0)", or compatible.

Now, if I search for org.eclipse.draw2d, find

http://help.eclipse.org/help33/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. draw2d.doc.i
sv/reference/api/org/eclipse/draw2d/package-summary.html

or

http://tinyurl.com/ywley8
http://preview.tinyurl.com/ywley8
(if you want to check to see where the tiny url goes first)


which appears to be documentation on the draw2d package on which the
Webtools package seems to depend.

But, based on the documentation here, I cannot determine the location
from which I can download this package.

Perhaps it should be:

http://download.eclipse.org/draw2d/updates
(following the same form as webtools)

I haven't tried this yet, but I am about to. When one gets one of those
cryptic error messages about a required plug-in, what is the
easiest/best way to determine where it can be obtained?

Thank you.

PDT has the following pre-reqs

# Java 5 JRE
# Eclipse SDK v3.3.1.1
# EMF SDO XSD 2.3.1
# GEF 3.3.1
# DTP 1.5.1
# WTP 2.0.1

this info can be found on the download pages, eg
http://download.eclipse.org/tools/pdt/downloads/?release=S20 071213-M1

I would have thought that the update site would define the pre-reqs but I don't know
how that works (ie where the info is stored and how eclipse processes it)

thanks.

In any case, I tried downloading the '
pdt-all-in-one-S20071213_M1-macosx-carbon.tar.gz' from the site you
mentioned and went to go see if there were any dependencies that weren't
included in this all-in-one and I found a couple...


The Eclipse Project Updates requires:
Eclipse RCP Patch 1 for 3.3.1 (3.3.1.v20071002_331) requires feature
"org.eclipse.rcp (3.3.1.R33x_r20070802-8y8eE8sEV3Fz0z0GlHJrXvTAUS)".

The XML Schema Infoset Model (XSD) Updates requires:
EMF Model Query OCL Integration (1.1.0.v200706071712-10-7w311817182823)
requires plug-in "org.eclipse.emf.ocl (1.1.0)", or compatible.


I'm assuming this is a genuine problem...

Yes, you should. I'm not sure why it is not working as expected in your
case, but here's one shot-in-the-dark: A few days ago I responded to a
newsgroup question about a possible bug in the Select Required
functionality. The person asking the question seemed to observe that
unless a particular update site was expanded in the list, Select
Required would not search it. So can you try your scenario again, this
time making sure to expand the Europa site before hitting Select Required?

Hope this helps,
Eric

This appears to be noted in http://wiki.eclipse.org/PDT/Installation

Thanks. I'll play around with it a bit more and see if I can get it
working. This whole Eclipse thing looks pretty cool.

It seems silly that collapsed sites would not be searched...I assume
this is considered to be a bug...?

Seems to be a "known" limitation that is just not presented to the user:

Interesting.

I am still wondering why such a feature even needs to exist. It seems
the solution used by MCPAN, MacPorts, Fink, etc. for a long time
(decades?) is far better...if you try to install something, that
something knows what it needs and the system can find and install the
dependencies automatically. I believe the success of these systems has
shown this method to be a good solution.

The bug report seems to be trying to fix a feature that, as near as I
can tell, is fundamentally and inherently flawed.

Hence the effort underway in Eclipse 3.4 to replace it. The bug talked
about that.
