JBoss AS Tools Installation - zip archive and update site

Version 2

    I have downloaded the JBoss AS Tools plugin from http://downloads.sourceforge.net/jboss/as-Update-2010-07-20_00-26-17-H162.zip and unzipped its contents into Eclipse's dropins folder:

     

    • <dropins-folder>\jboss-tools\eclipse\
      • features
        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.feature_2.2.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar
      • plugins
        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.archives.webtools_2.2.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar
        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.classpath.core_2.2.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar

        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.core_2.2.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar
        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.ssh_2.2.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar
        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.ui.mbeans_2.1.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar

        • org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.wtp.ui_2.2.0.v20100720-0040-H162-M1.jar

     

    However, this plugin needs some files not included in the zip archive. These are the missing files:

    If you install JBoss AS Tools via the update site ( http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/development/ ), all needed files are properly downloaded.

     

    So it doesn't seem to be possible to install this plugin via zip file alone.
