I'm trying to install the GWT plugin for JBDS 4.1.2.GA
Build id: v20120125-1128-H1092-GA
Build date: 20120125-1128
This appears to be Eclipse 3.6, and so the plugin URL would be http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/3.6
I get the following error:
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: Google Plugin for Eclipse 3.6 2.5.2.v201202290255-rel-r36 (com.google.gdt.eclipse.suite.e36.feature.feature.group 2.5.2.v201202290255-rel-r36)
Missing requirement: Google Plugin for Eclipse 3.6 2.5.2.v201202290255-rel-r36 (com.google.gdt.eclipse.suite.e36.feature.feature.group 2.5.2.v201202290255-rel-r36) requires 'org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui 0.0.0' but it could not be found
I was tempted to install mylyn but unfortunately there is no version number, and I'm not sure what harm I would do by installing some random untested version.
Surely someone else has hit this. Could someone please share the fix?
OK, I did some more vigorous googling.
I added this as a software site:
This appears to have solved the issue.
Tim, yes if you want to install things from external sites you would have to add the required updatesites.
In JBDS 4 we did add "common used" plugins to the extras site incl. mylyn so you should be able to install it from there; just need to choose it under the Help > Install New... UI.
But as Burr says in JBDS 5 we've made effort to make it trivial to install more plugins such as GWT via the Software/update tab in JBoss Central.
