The jbpm-gpd-feature-3.0.11.zip does not have this issue. I was able to install the feature zip into Eclipse 3.2 without an issue (3.1.2 doesn't work though, but that's another thread)
and I was able to install the 3.0.11 SITE in Eclipse 3.2. What version are you using cormierjf?
I am using a fresh install of Eclipse Version: 3.1.1
Build id: M20050929-0840
Here is an example of the exception i get when intalling the site:

As you can see it's looking for the file with the "-RC2" but in the zip file the file has "_RC2"
I re-read Koens announcement and saw there that 3.0.10 was for 3.1.x and 3.0.11 was for 3.2. So it could be that 3.0.11 does not work with 3.1.x
Koen's Announcement wrote:
Both GPD releases are build and tested against Eclipse 3.2 and WTP 1.5.
Says nothing about 3.0.10 for 3.1.x, anyway, I tried 3.0.10 for Eclipse 3.1.2 and it still didn't work :(
You are currect, google helped me find this:
So it looks like people that cannot upgrade to eclipse 3.2 are out of luck for the site intall.
I did manage to install it using the feature zip, but the site zip install is prefered around here.
It worked for you on Eclipse 3.1.1 w/ the 3.0.11.feature zip?
Hmm, I wonder if eclipse 3.1.1 vs 3.1.2 could have differences?
sorry, I indeed mis re-read the blog. Shame on me try searching on google for the rc2 thing. Maybe it is 'know' in other eclipse projects
Eclipse compatibility is a real pain. We simply have not the resources to keep the plug-in backward compatible across Eclipse versions... If it works, we are lucky, but in this case (as it is an upgrade from Eclipse 3.1.x /WTP 1.0 to Eclipse 3.2 /WTP 1.5) there are so much changes that this is highly unlikely.
So can we state that eclipse 3.2 is required for at least 3.0.11 and if 3.0.10 works you with 3.1.x you are lucky. otherwise upgrade?
No, it is as I said... GPD 3.0.10 was build against some release candidate of the so-called Eclipse Callisto release (which is SDK 3.2, WTP 1.5) and GPD 3.0.11 was build against the final release of Callisto.
If either of these works with Eclipse 3.1.x you are very lucky...
Thanks (I already switched fully to 3.2), now waiting for the exadel or myeclipse jsf editors.
The GPD should have more information about it. There's only the readme.txt in the .zip which is a basic 'how to install'.
http://www.jboss.com/products/jbpm/downloads Doesn't have any notes for the GPD. Anything like release notes, or change logs, etc would be great :)
Inside the starter kit for 3.1.2 it says:
You'll need to download eclipse 3.1.2 separately from the jBPM starters-kit.
The designer plugin works with eclipse versions 3.1.2, 3.1.1, 3.1, 3.1M7, 3.1RC1 and 3.1RC2.
and the solo download says:
he described installation process has been tested with the 3.1 version of Eclipse.
So that was rather confusing, I tried to install both on Eclipse 3.1.2, and neither worked.
So I am now downloading the 3.2 Eclipse and trying it there.
(I am running fedora 45 linux as well)
