I have a possible upcoming job where I'll have to use Eclipse, so I'm trying to install eclipse and get it working with Java EE. I tried the
yum groupinstall "Fedora Eclipse"
and then running eclipse to download and install the plugins. The problem I have is that the plugin installations always bomb with failed/missing dependencies. As a I back out the plugins that had problems it just gets a bit farther and hits another bad/missing dependency. Is Eclipse in Fedora 16 really buggy?
I'm using Oracle Java SE 1.6.0_30 64bit on Fedora 16 64bit
I'm more familiar with netbeans 7.1, it seems to have much less plugin trouble
Back to Eclipse 3.7.1 (indigo), you go into installing plugins via: "Help" -> "Install new software"
if I use the spring plugin repo at: springide.org/updatesite to try to install spring plugins for Eclipse, I get (even with "--All Available Sites--" in the "work with"):
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: Spring IDE Core (required) 22.214.171.124103160035-RELEASE (org.springframework.ide.eclipse.feature.feature.g roup 126.96.36.199103160035-RELEASE)
Missing requirement: Spring IDE Core (required) 188.8.131.52103160035-RELEASE (org.springframework.ide.eclipse.feature.feature.g roup 184.108.40.206103160035-RELEASE) requires 'org.eclipse.wst.xml_ui.feature.feature.group 0.0.0' but it could not be found
So I guess this might be a problem at springide.org/updatesite
