Re: [tools-pmc] [ve-dev] FW: Error installing



But there are no commits or activity on the VE project. The fact that there are adopters does not mean that this is a viable project.


So unless these companies step up and actually put some resources into keeping the project actively running, my conclusion remains that the time has come for archival.

Hi All,


From my standpoint, I know several important companies who built their UI tools on top of VE. They ask me to keep it up-to-date to eclipse main stream. For the end-users, it is easy to switch one to another. But it is not the case for the companies who build their solutions, it is not so easy to make this migration. I think it’d better to keep it in maintenance for a while.  I can continue to handle this work.   


FYI, I just tested the build. It works as expected.

Best regards

Adding ve-dev to the list in case anyone there wants to express an opinion.

Yes, John and I talked about that at EclipseCon. I think we’re ready. Let’s start the vote.

[tools-pmc] FW: [ve-dev] Error installing

Esteemed Tools PMC,

Can we please please pretty please archive this project?

Especially now with WindowBuilder in full development, I see no reason to avoid end-of-lifing VE.

[ve-dev] Error installing

Hello EveryOne,

I’ve Just downloaded “” from eclipse website.
After that I’ve downloaded for Helios, in agreement with the site: “”, and I try to install it.

But, for my surprise, there is an error on the installation:

The artifact file for osgi.bundle,,1.5.0.R20101202-1328 was not found.
session context was:(profile="" phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Install, operand=null --> [R] 1.5.0.R20101202-1328, action="">

Please, have somebody the solution for this problem ? Is a VE a discontinuous or deprecated project ? Have anyone noted that problem until now ?

Thank you in Advance,
