This URL has disappeared a while ago. However, the wtp-parent pom
was updated since then to use another URL for platform.
I intend to work on some issues that I need to get fixed.
Unfortunately I'm a bit confused about the WTP project overall.
First of all I wasn't able to figure out the actual starting point
within the web (I mean a landing page providing links for all
necessary infos). I consider
https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/webtools to be the most
recent and valid location but it wasn't really helpful for me.
What I did so far:
* I've checked out the GIT repo
* I attempted to build it using Maven but it showed me the
following error message:
Caused by: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core.ProvisionException: No
repository found at
* I couldn't find this platform neither through a browser nor
through the Eclipse updating mechanism.
Please make sure you're using the latest version of parent pom by
adding the "-U" flag to the Maven command.
So a full command to build the webtools.javaee component would be
`mvn clean verify -U -Pbuild-individual-bundles`.
What I'm hoping for:
AFAIK, the main documentation page is
https://wiki.eclipse.org/Web_Tools_Projec , however, I cannot find a
welcoming page for new contributors...
* Is there some sort of documentation available which exercises
point-by-point each step to setup an environment?
What would be great would be that you start one, and ask here
whenever there's something blocking you.
