Install and run the snapshot build

Revision as of 23:27, 11 April 2007 by (Talk | contribs) (All-in-One package)

This wiki page is used to explain how to install and use the latest snapshot build. 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.

Where to get stp build

Pre-requisites plugins

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.

Three known issues:

  • Can't set the JAX-WS runtime directory and soapbinding from project's properties. But config 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 we are using. But the standalone client run from Eclipse java launch configuration works fine.
