This wiki page is used to explain how to install and use the latest snapshot with Eclipse3.3. Since the current 0.4.0 S-build ( has some major problems, we suggest to use the snapshot build instead.

For user's convenience, i created a all-in-one package to download at the end of this wiki page.

(Last updated on Apr 16, 2007)

Where to get stp build

  • STP snapshot from cvs

Setup pre-requisites

  • Eclipse 3.3 M6

Pre-requisites plugins

Plugins from other Eclipse projects


3rd-party plugins

  • Apache Tuscany plugin for SCA development:

Pre-requisites SOA runtime

Run it

Tyler Anderson wrote a good article about Use the Eclipse SOA Tools Platform plug-in to build and deploy a Web service

About the update sites

We are still working on those update sites:

  • Eclipse STP update site, coming soon...
  • Apache CXF update site, coming soon...
  • Apache Tuscany update site. ?

All-in-One package

You can download the STP all in one package from

Just copy all plugins from that package to your eclipse3.2 installation.

Please notice:

* We only support eclipse3.2 for now. 
* Please set the java compiler to jdk 1.5 in preference page (1.4 and 1.6 are not supported)
* Need to install CXF runtime to test the JAX-WS functions.
* The tutorial has been tested with Tomcat 5.5

Three known issues for the all-in-one package:

* Can't set the JAX-WS runtime directory and soap12 binding from project's properties. But set from Preference page  works fine.
* The Document/Lit/Bare doesn't work. This is caused by a bug in Apache CXF runtime.
So If you are following Tyler's article, please give @SoapBinding(Document/Literal/Wrapped) annotation on web service class.
* The HTTP/REST style client has problem, will give HTTP 500 error in the runtime. But the standalone client run from Eclipse works fine.
