OK, Nathan is going to remove the
Java EE package from the download page.
Hopefully marcus can take a look on the
weekend or Monday. When it is fixed we will put it back up.

[Fwd: Re: [wtp-dev] Pieces missing from Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers
There is an issue with the Java EE Developer package
that causes serious problems when trying to use the Update Manager after the
initial installation. This is due to a couple of missing plugins that
should be in the package. See bug 194959 and below for more
information. These missing plugins only affect the Update Manager
functionality, but affect it in a very serious way.
The question is whether or not we should pull the Java EE package from the
download section until this issue can be corrected, as this is likely to be a
major user issue when it comes to updating or adding functionality via the
-------- Original Message --------
Unfortunately it appears that a couple of plugins didn't make it into the JEE
distribution for some reason. Specifically:
This was probably the result of trying to user "feature level"
prereqs in the JPT feature. This may have caused a problem with prereq's
for the IDE distributions. The pure -Update Manager from Platform only-
path will download the correct plugins and therefore will not have this issue.
To remedy the problem with the current JEE configuration, one must download the
Data Tools Platform Enablement feature AND the Data Tools Platform
This seems like a pretty serious usability issue.

I downloaded this distribution, went to install
WLS Server Tools via an update site and got the following message:
Java Persistence API Tools

Note that the feature that I am installing has no
dependencies on JPA or DTP. I looked at the distribution and indeed it does not
contain org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.feature feature. In fact there are
quite a few datatools features missing as compared to a "standard"
WTP installation (as downloaded via the WTP build page). It looks like this
problem will prevent installation of all features via the update site
Not sure who owns creating this distribution...
