VE/Installing

Step by step installation of VE. Please edit me and add the steps. Thank!

Contributed by Chris Dolan:

I got it to work once I figured out the JEM stuff. In the end, these are the steps that worked for me.

Note: These are likely not the minimal steps, just one working solution.

  1. Fully uninstall any old version of VE or JEM (not just disable)
  2. via the Europa update site, install prerequisites for WTP:
    • org.eclipse.datatools
    • org.eclipse.wst
    • org.eclipse.jst
    • org.eclipse.jpt
  3. Install the 3.0M1 milestone release of WTP SDK, which is the authoritative source of JEM 2.0.0:
    1. Go to http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/downloads/
    2. Click the 3.0M1 build
    3. Download the wtp-sdk zip
    4. Unpack the .zip file somewhere
    5. In that extracted folder, there is an "eclipse" subdir
    6. In that subdir, create a file called ".eclipseextension"
    7. In eclipse, go to Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration
    8. Click "Add an Extension Location"
    9. Select the WTP "eclipse" subdir from above
  4. Install the build of VE:
    1. Go to http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=131065&package_id=154855
    2. Click "Visual Editor patched as in bug 202562"
    3. Click org.eclipse.visualeditor-1.3.0.200709121813.zip
    4. Unpack the .zip file somewhere
    5. In that extracted folder, there is an " org.eclipse.visualeditor-1.3.0.200709121813" subdir
    6. Rename that subdir to "eclipse"
    7. In that "eclipse" subdir, create a file called ".eclipseextension"
    8. In eclipse, go to Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration
    9. Click "Add an Extension Location"
    10. Select the VE "eclipse" subdir from above
  5. You will likely be prompted to restart Eclipse, do so.

Slightly more minamilistic:

  1. 1. instead of installing the prerequisites for wtp or wtp itself
    1. 1.1 download the 3.0M1 milestone release of WTP (the runtime is sufficient)
    2. 1.2 inside the archive under eclipse/plugins locate and extract all
      1. the org.eclipse.jem* files to your plugin folder (in your main ,extension or link folder)
    3. 1.3 now go to your features folder and create a folder for each file extracted (name them the same as the plugin file)
    4. 1.4 inside each folder create a feature.properties and feature.xml file with the following contents
      1. All feature.properties should look like this:
        1. featureName=Java EMF Model
        2. providerName=Eclipse.org
        3. updateSiteName=Visual Editor update site
    1. featureName should be changed in each folder e.g. featurename=Java EMF Model - JavaBeans
      1. Copy and paist the following into the relevant feature.xml file
      2. org.eclipse.jem_2.0.0.v200705302225
