I just did a clean install and it installed OK. I am on MacOS. What platform are you on ?
However, for some reason it hadn’t work at first, when I had an installation with plenty of plugins — is it your case ?

Warning with Amateras: if you’re behind a proxy, Amateras will lock up Eclipse every time you try to open an XML file with a schema or DTD attached, unless you set your proxy information in the preferences->Internet->Proxy pane. I assume it’s trying to go out and find the schemas/DTDs for validation, but it doesn’t play nice if it fails to get through a proxy. It will hang Eclipse.

Is it possible to update this plugin to the newest 2.0.4 release which fixed JSP editor bugs involving tag libraries? I love EasyEclipse, but am having trouble installing the 2.0.4 plugin manually using their zip file. Thanks.

Exactly, it shows an unmet dependency (in package management) for “system.bundle”. Any help here would be appreciated…

Amateras is a nice editor - it does autocompletion of schemas by associating them with a file on your system. The only downside is that it does not dynamically get updates to the schema. You have to download the xsd file to your machine.
If you have a tag defined:
Then go to window->preferences->amateras->dtd/xml schema, and associate that ur (for example, with the actual location on your filesystem.
In the future, to get the xsd file dynamically may require some authentication. That would truly make Amateras better than even xml editors you pay for, like Oxygen.
