Re: [wtp-dev] Please help test latest EPP Java EE IDE Package

I've tested this out and found a possible useability bug with the new welcome page.

The issue is that it's going out to the net, and the links do not work when there is no Internet connectivity. We really should consider having this information internal in the help System instead of relying on an active network connection. Many times I've been without a network connection but still needed to access some information.

Also, the question of how the page deals with contributions to a help page. I know that various plugins will contribute to the Welcome page like Mylyn and ECF. Will these contributions show up on the JEE Branded Welcome page. My guess is that it won't.

I hope it's just me ... but I tested for about an hour on two platforms and immediately found 3 bugs! All of them bad, even if a few are probably intermittent.
279191 JEE Preview Server won't start
279193 NPE while programmatically switching to console view
279195 Debug breakpoints don't break if server has already ran

So please continue to test well these last few weeks, so we at least know if there's some bad regressions before we release, even if we can't completely fix them in time. Our EPP Java EE IDE RC3 candidate is, so far, dated 20090604-2257 and can be downloaded at

It has our "custom" welcome screen which looks cool ... though I admit I do not personally know how to evaluate it ... hope some of you do? Much thanks,
