In the Project Archives View, selecting your ear / jar / war etc and right-clicking it, then selecting "Build Archive", should *always* produce a proper jar.
I've been working hard to remove any bugs found in project archives, and I think what's currently in TRUNK / nightly builds is much improved over what was available previously.
Something of note is that in the new builds, Project Archives has been moved out to its own component, and "core" is no longer present.
>Another problem is that the JBoss Archiver files from Eclipse 3.2 do not work with the JBoss Archiver for Eclipse 3.3
Can you elaborate on this? I went to pains to ensure old archive files would not be broken by any changes made.
Thanks for your quick answer.
So, and if I understand correctly, all I need to install over Ganymede WTP is the new JBossTools-Archives package from the nightly build page?
Regarding the issue with the JBoss Archiver files from Eclipse 3.2 that do not work with the JBoss Archiver for Eclipse 3.3, all I can tell you is that it seems that it can't convert from 3.2 ".packages" file to the newer format.
Let me know if that's all I need to install and I'll try again. I'll come back to you with the results.
Forget about the JBossArchive question. I got the latest Archiver nightly build installed. At first look, everything seems to be working just fine. I'll try to put under fire as soon as I get some more time.
Thanks for the help,
