Eclipse 3.3 (Europa) for J2EE developers
The new release of Eclipse has been out for a couple of days. The changes included in the release look great!
However, the default install comes with an error in the configuration which will prevent the installation of new plug-ins through the update manager.
The message I’m seeing is:
Java Persistence API Tools (1.0.0.v200706250000-77–CYQCCz-CoRPCCCH) requires feature “org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.feature”.
To fix that, go to the update manager and grab from the Europa Discovery Site the features:
- Database Development / Data Tools Platform Documentation
- Database Development / Data Tools Platform Enablement
I’m clueless about why the documentation is needed to resolve this issue but…
Once these features are checked, the error message will disappear and you will be free to install whichever plugins you’d like.
