Ya you were correct. I have not downloaded JBoss Tools. I will do it on first priority.
Actaully i copied the JBossIDE 1.6.0 Core package only and then copied the plugins and features in eclipse. I got he JBoss IDE option in New > Project. But when I select J2EE 1.4 project it does allow me to create a project but it creates a simple Java project and not a Web project. So neither I am able to run the project on server that way nor i am getting the server in the Eclipse server list as mentioned in my first post.
JBoss IDE is an old product and has morphed into JBoss Tools.
The JBoss IDE plugins should not be used any longer.
I downloaded the JBossAS Tools version 1.1.2.GA. I only downloaded AS tools because i want the most basic functionalit plus i have limited bandwith and usage so downloading only the core was the obvious choice(because JBossAS tools is just 2.74 MB but the whole package is 60 MB).
But still i am not getting the JBoss 4.2 server option when i try to create a new server. Is is so that eclipse 3.2 dose not support JBoss 4.2. It only supports upto JBoss 4.0. Is there any other way to add the server in eclipse.
Please guide me on these lines.
BTW thanks for the prompt support so far.
The AS Tools portion has dependencies on core and perhaps others. They are not listed as optional dependencies.
I followed from this link
But core packages are not listed. So is it the case that core packages cannot be downloaded seperately in jboss tools. I think in JBoss IDE 1.6 there is an option to download the core packages seperately.
Is there a certainity that once i download the complete JBoss Tools i will be able to work with JBoss 4.2 in Eclipse 3.2. (No offense. I am asking for certainity because of a download bandwith problem. My intensions are not to bind u with that certainity word.)
Please provide your guide lines.
Thanks in advance.
Did you try just downloading JBossAS tools ? Did that work ?
If not then we have a bug in that index.html and should list the core parts too - please report that in jira.
