JBDS 4 does not support installations via "dropins". You need to use an updatesite via the Update ui (Help > Install new software)
Unfortunately I don't know any such site for these plugins.
Hi, Max. Would it work if I put the downloaded plugin jar file on any regular website that we hosted (say a website I created on my local machine) and use that as an update site, then uses the Update UI and point to that website?
Thanks in advance for answering.
Doesn't have to be an update site on a webserver - could just be a manually created updatesite on disk.
The metadata for that is missing - it is just a plugin bundle without installation info.
