[] [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.

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.

I downloaded this distribution, went to install WLS Server Tools via an update site and got the following message:
Java Persistence API Tools (1.0.0.v200706250000-77--CYQCCz-CoRPCCCH) requires feature "org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.feature".
Screen shot attached.
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 mechanism.
Not sure who owns creating this distribution...
