Environment: Win XP, Eclipse3.2.2
The links above are for two articles that mention the three ways of managing plugins:
1. update manager
2. through an external plugin directory
3. through a link(that also uses a plugin directory but it is still different than 2.)
I have successfully followed the second approach although some plugins such as WTP do not work. I think this is due to the fact that WTP requires outside packages/plugins such as ...jem(if I recall correctly). This is what I believe is happening because when I installed WTP(a while back) via the update manager I remember there was a dependency issue. Whereas if I stall SQL Explorer via the external plugin directory it works like a charm. Could anyone explain how to deal with dependencies such as those in the WTP case?
The instructions for the third way to manage plugins, via links, are pretty straightforward yet they are not cooperating with me. Does anyone know if this method works with eclipse3.2.2? I think this is not working because I am able to get SQL explorer to work via the external plugin directory method(method 2) but not this one. I really do not see what is wrong. Any suggestions?
