I have also just tried jbpm-jpdl-designer-3.1.0.beta2.zip with Eclipse 3.2.1 and it doesn't work either.
Instead of manually copying the features and plugins directories into my eclipse directory, I used the "ant build install" task to extract my eclipse installation and install the plugin, and it seemed to work fine. Why would the eclipse plugin install feature, or copying the directories across manuall not work?
3.1.0 beta2 of our GPD is compiled against Eclipse 3.3.
Earlier releases work fine with Eclipse 3.2.x
Thanks, will remember that when using 3.1.0.
Anyone know why it wouldn't work when copying org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.feature. 220.127.116.11 manually to the Eclipse 3.2.2 directory? That is the process designer that comes with the jbpm-jpdl-suite-3.2.1 download.
If I used the "build install" task found in jbpm-jpdl-suite-3.2.1\jbpm-jpdl-3.2.1\designer\build.xml, and point the build.properties file to the eclipse-SDK-3.2.2-win32.zip file, or the eclipse-SDK-3.2.1-win32.zip file, it does work.
Isn't there 2 jar files you need to copy to the plugins directory as well?
Did you copy over the necessary plugins from the plugin folder in your jbpm download? They're in the suite's eclipse folder and they go into eclipse's plugin directory. Hope this helps,
I did copy the plugins across. I basically copied across \jbpm-jpdl-3.2.1\designer\eclipse\features\*.* and \jbpm-jpdl-3.2.1\designer\eclipse\plugins\*.* across into the eclipse\features and eclipse\plugins folder. The plugins folder includes the org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.core_18.104.22.168.jar and org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.ui_22.214.171.124.jar files. One thing I haven't tried yet, is copying the "links" folder across as well. Let me try that, and I will get back to you.
Okay that worked. So simple, but easy to miss as it isn't really mentioned anywhere in the docs. Usually you just copy across the plugins and features folders to add an Eclipse plugin.
You simply need to copy across the "links" folder as well. So copy all the folders in "jbpm-jpdl-3.2.1\designer\eclipse\" into your own Eclipse directory. These folders inlcude "plugins", "features" AND "links".
Thanks everyone for your help.
