RE: [wtp-dev] Has anyone tried "download additional server adapters" feature since RC1?

Here are the results of my testing (using RC4)...
 
1. Using old-style layout (not using dropins dir), the adapter is installed and is available for use after restart.
 
2. Using the basic p2 layout (all zips except for the platform extracted under the dropins dir), the adapter is installed ok (it goes into the dropins area), but after restart Eclipse does not see the new plugins. Restarting again doesn't fix it either. Is this a known issue? Is anyone else seeing this?
 
I was planning on testing other more complicated p2 configurations, but since #2 doesn't work, that doesn't seem to be worth the effort.

Hi Konstantin,

FWIW, I had tested this function since RC1 and it was working. Since there have been no bug reports, I can only assume it has been working for others too. :)

I tested again (on the same old build) and hit a 'total p2 failure', but once I moved up to the latest RC4 platform and WTP builds I could use this function with no problems. Please make sure a bug gets opened if users are still seeing this, but my guess would be intermittent p2 issues that have been resolved.

Thanks,
Tim deBoer

Oh, I meant "how do they install WTP itself".
There is something about that 'install server adapter' code, that depends on locating features in 'eclipse/features' (not, for example, 'eclipse/dropins/wtp/features'. If the user installs wtp in dropins/wtp, then I _think_ that function is broken .... but, I could be absolutely completely wrong ... it's a vague memory from talking to Tim about that bug 224441. Might be unrelated, but I just thought that might be important information to get in a bug report.

I am refering to the feature where wtp code hits a vendor update site, downloads and installs server adapter. User doesn't do anything themselves.

I haven't ... but, your first question to them should be how installed ... if they unzip into eclipse directory, then never mind ... if they unzip into dropins folder, then, maybe running into bug 224441

We are getting reports from the field that this is broken (the reports reference RC1), but I haven’t had a chance to verify that. Perhaps another p2 casualty? If this functionality is indeed broken, then we have a major problem on our hands. Will update once I know more.
