Install VE 1.4 from Update Manager

For a technical reason, we have met a problem to integrate VE build system in Eclipse. We provide here a temporary solution to install VE via Soyatec Web services. If someone familiarizes with releng and intents to help us to fix this problem, please contact

  • Download and install Eclipse 3.4 Ganymede for Java development. It could be one of the following standard distributions:
- "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers"
- "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers"
- "Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in Developers"
- "Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers"
  • Start eclipse and call update manager via the menu: Helps->Softwares Update...

Switch to "Available Softwares" Tab and click on the button "Add site..". In the coming dialog, put the URL


  • Open all nodes, select the check box "Visual Editor" and click the button "Install"


Download Eclipse for Java EE Developers

  • Download and install Eclipse 3.4 Ganymede. The "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" bundle contains all plugins needed.
Alternatively, you can use a smaller Ganymede bundle or the "Classic" Eclipse 3.4 SDK, then using the Ganymede update site, install the following features:
EMF Ecore Mapping 2.4
Graphical Editing Framework GEF 3.4
JST Web Core 3.0
JST Web UI 3.0
WST Common Core 3.0

Download VE

  • Download the latest VE build from and unzip into the eclipse/ folder (Eclipse 3.3) or into the new dropins/ folder (Eclipse 3.4).
