    JBoss IDE Removal

    Rod Madden Newbie

      Can someone explain the proper process for removal of the JBoss IDE plugin from Eclipse 3.1

      I've gone to Help -> Software Updates -> Manage Configuration ...

      I see :

      JBoss-IDE / Eclipse 3.1 / JRE 1.5 1.4.1.e31-jre15
      JBoss-IDE AOP Extension 1.0 1.0.1
      JBoss-IDE AOP Standalone 1.0 1.0.1

      There is an option to "Disable" but not one to Remove/UNInstall ...as a matter of fact it specifically states that disabling will not remove the plugin ....

      Thanks.

          Removal is not implemented for JBoss IDE. As a matter of fact, most Eclipse plugins don't implement this (yet) as it is a relatively new possibility which is relatively complicated to implement. The best you can do is do a fresh Eclipse installation or, if this is not possible, manually remove all the org.jboss.*, org.jbpm.* and org.hibernate.* folders from the 'plugins' and 'features' subfolders of your Eclipse installation.

            After you Disable a plugin restart the workbench and open Manage Configuration once again. There is a button on the toolbar which says "View Disabled" or something. Then you will see the plugins which r currently disabled.

            You can Uninstall disabled plugins.

              This worked well for me (Eclipse 3.1). All related plugin files are gone and everything seems to be working fine.

              This procedure will make testing various plugins much easier for me. Thanks!
