Having problem making this plug-in work with EasyEclipse Desktop Java 1.2.1 distro. Even after successful installation, it’s not showing up with aspect related projects in the menu.

I’m getting the same problem with EasyEclipse Server Java 1.2.1. I Installed the AspectJ Development Tools plugin, and don’t see any changes at all. AspectJ options don’t appear in menus anywhere in Eclipse.

The AspectJ plugin has a dependency on Eclipse PDE and it may not work if you don’t install it… Have you installed it ? Sorry, we’ve cleaned up quite a lot of dependencies between plugins, but there are still a few…

Installing the Eclipse PDE plugin, and then re-installing the AspectJ plugin did the trick. Thanks for the prompt reply.

The version for 1.3 has so long pathes inside, that my windows xp can’t create certain files under the path D:\Dev\Tools\EasyEclipse1.3.1.1\extensions\eclipse-ajdt-1.5.0\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.ajdt.source_1.5.0.200706070619\src\org.eclipse.contribution.visualiser_2.2.0.200706070619\src\org\eclipse\contribution\visualiser\internal\help

Are that long paths really neccessary?
