    Problems with Eclipse

    Thomas Wilhelmi Newbie

      Hello,

      until now I developed my JSF-Apps with Netbeans. But my Company ist also developing C++ with Eclipse and so I want to use only one IDE.

      I also want to use Richfaces to get Ajax-Support for my JSF-Applications.

      I downloaded than Eclipse Ganymed SR1 (JEE-package), installed it (Java JDK 1.6_11 before) and installed WTP 3.0.3. After the restart after that I added Update-Site http://download.jboss.com/jbosstools/updates/development and installed the JBoss-Tolls. I took this site because I've read that I need this version with Ganymed.

      When I now make a new JBoss-JSF-Project I have a problem with the build.xml. But ths is not so important.

      More important is that I can only select a template without libs when I choose JSF 1.2. And even if I select this in "Project facets" "Javaserver Faces" is not selected. Even "Sun Deployment Descriptor Fiels" is unselected and "Dynamic Web Module" is set to 2.4. And when I try to set this to 2.5 I get an error that this is not possible. Java Version is 6 (Just to remember).

      Even adding the Custom Capabilities in Menu "JBoss Tools" is not possible. This hangs the whole IDE and I have to cancel it.

      All is running on Win XP Prof.

      Any suggestions? If I was to unclear please ask. I really want to use this environment but actually it's totaly useless for me.

      Regards

          If you really need to use JSF12/JSP with JSF libs which are not bundled to the server (which is ussual case) then you can add it manually to the WEB-INF/lib folder or link it to the project classpath. Also you can use WTP JSF faset (Project facets/Javaserver Faces) to set up that libs. This is feature of WTP and JBoss JSF Tools doesn't use this facet.

          These bugs have been already fixed.
          Please use last JBossTools 3.0.0cr1 nightly build.
