|[eclipse.org-planning-council] [Fwd: Re: [wtp-dev] Pieces missing from Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers distribution]]|
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 Update Manager.
-------- 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 Documentation feature.
This seems like a pretty serious usability issue.
