Just got the latest to take it for a spin, and hit some large problems.
When I open the JBoss Server View, I get :
Could not create the view: org/eclipse/wst/server/ui/internal/view/servers/ServerAction
The top part of the details is :
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/wst/server/ui/internal/view/servers/ServerAction at org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.ui.views.server.ServerTableViewer.<init>(ServerTableViewer.java:204) at org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.ui.views.server.ServerFrame.<init>(ServerFrame.java:113) at org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.ui.views.server.JBossServerView.createPartControl(JBossServerView.java:141) at org.eclipse.ui.internal.ViewReference.createPartHelper(ViewReference.java:371) at org.eclipse.ui.internal.ViewReference.createPart(ViewReference.java:230)
Here's what I'm using :
This is basically the build drivers for the current nightly builds. I also am currently running a nightly build which should be identical to 2.1.2 (JBossTools-200807010815-nightly-ALL-win32.zip) which is working fine.
I unzipped everything into a fresh new directory, including the Jboss tools 2.1.2GA, set up a shortcut and launched it.
When I switch to the Seam view, the JBoss Tools window shows :
Could not create the view: org/eclipse/gef/internal/ui/palette/editparts/PaletteEditPart
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/gef/internal/ui/palette/editparts/PaletteEditPart at org.jboss.tools.vpe.ui.palette.CustomPaletteEditPartFactory.createDrawerEditPart(CustomPaletteEditPartFactory.java:27) at org.eclipse.gef.ui.palette.PaletteEditPartFactory.createEditPart(PaletteEditPartFactory.java:66) at org.eclipse.gef.editparts.AbstractEditPart.createChild(AbstractEditPart.java:249) at org.eclipse.gef.editparts.AbstractEditPart.refreshChildren(AbstractEditPart.java:726) at org.eclipse.gef.editparts.AbstractEditPart.refresh(AbstractEditPart.java:677)
Let me know if I need to fill out a JIRA or whether you need more info or want me to try something out.
You are using the wrong drivers. Please check:
The current nightly builds are targeting wtp 3.0. We did nto upgrade the drivers between 2.1.0, 2.1.1, and 2.1.2 because these were incremental fixes and patch releases and not full retargets.
The TRUNK / head / nightly build stream is targeting the new eclipse releases. JBoss Tools 2.1.2 does not =]
Hope the link helps. The drivers used are on the right side near the b ottom.
You'll also need to make sure you install our custom wtp patch over the raw wtp drivers (DO NOT USE WTP PATCHES, just our patch of wtp please) at: http://repository.jboss.org/eclipse/webtools/patches/wtp-P-P20080506003122-20080506003122.zip
The reason for this is wtp made some huge regressions and we had to fix it ourselves.
WTP is coming out with a new patch release shortly which may work along with ours, but at this moment I only trust our patch since I have not had an opportunity to test the upcoming wtp patch.
Ok, that works now.
I assumed you took the latest nightly build and called it 2.1.2 GA, hence the same build drivers would be used as you use in the nightly.
I'll start having a play with it tomorrow,
I am relatively new to JBoss and am trying to get JBoss going in eclipse 3.4 and am getting the error that Andy has described, I downloaded the WTP patch you suggested but i guess my installation of WTP is a different version than the jars targeted in the patch, for example one of the patch jars is org.eclipse.wst.server.core_1.0.207.v200803080837.jar, and the version in my plugin directory is org.eclipse.wst.server.core_1.1.0.v20080530.jar, any idea's on what i can do to get it working? thank you in advance for your help!
Probably the best solution is to just download the build drivers that are listed on the download page for 2.1.2GA
I used those without any problems.
If you really want to use 3.4 Ganymede, then I suggest going to the nightly builds.
These nightly builds are for the most part pretty stable, although obviously, once in a while you get the odd one where it is a bit messed up.
I notice Drools is mentioned in the JBossTools project, but not in the JBDC spec.
Do we know if Drools is included in JBDC 1.1.0.GA?
JBDC spec ?
I guess you mean JBDS and not the sql api in java :)
We will have Drools in JBDS 2.x/JBT 3.x
Yes, JBDS. :) But thanks for the info.
