RE: [Subclipse-users] Issues in packaging of site-1.4.8.zip

As a follow-up to this, the site.xml file appeared to be preventing me from being able to install this plugin.

I was trying to do a manual install of the Subclipse plugin into Eclipse 3.4.2 and kept running into some difficulty.

I had unzipped site-1.4.8.zip and copied it to a folder (c:\eplugins) that I had set up for plugins. The folder structure is:


I have a file in the \eclipse\dropins folder named subclipse_1.4.8.link. The contents of that file is:

when I start Eclipse, I kept encountering the following error in the .log file:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core 0 0 2009-03-10 16:30:35.250
!MESSAGE Provisioning exception
org.eclipse.equinox.internal.provisional.p2.core.ProvisionException: No repository found at file:/C:/eplugins/subclipse_1.4.8/

The log file is attached.

I could not figure out what the cause was because (a) I am new to Eclipse and (B) my JBossTools plugin, which was installed in the same manner, had installed successfully.

It wasn't until I removed site.xml from the folder that the Subclipse plugin got installed successfully.

(If I copied the contents of the zip directly to the \eclipse\plugins and \eclipse\features folders, Subclipse installed successfully. Also, if I used the Update Manager within Eclipse I was able to complete a successful installation, so I did have a way to work around the problem if all else had failed.)

Again, due to not yet having a thorough understanding of how all these pieces are tied together, I am not sure of the impact of removing site.xml from the folder. However, I am confidant that someone else probably does know so I thought I would bring my experience to your attention.

If there was an error in the way I have tried to manually install the plugin, I more than welcome your feedback.

Thank you.
