I can not make EDT work for me! It always shows an unmet dependency for plug-in “system.bundle”. I don’t know what that means! Please help me…

I had the same problem, and figured out a workaround. Briefly, the Eclipse Data Tools 1.5.1 plug-in has a line in a file “feature.xml” which requires something called “system.bundle”. Change that string to read “org.eclipse.osgi”, save feature.xml, and restart Eclipse. The error should be gone.

On my Mac OS 10.5.8 machine, the file is installed at:
/Library/EasyEclipse/1.3/EasyEclipse\ Eclipse\ Data\ Tools\ 1.5.1/eclipse/features/org.nexb.easyeclipse.eclipse-dtp_1.5.1/

Details in a blog post I just wrote up, “How to resolve EasyEclipse error ‘Eclipse… requires plug-in “system.bundle”‘“. A similar problem affects the Eclipse Web Tools editors 2.0.1 plug-in.

I get the same error when trying to do any kind of updates: Eclipse Data Tools (1.5.1) requires plug-in “system.bundle”. Why?
