Installing this plugin

This plugin is in the EasyEclipse Server Java, EasyEclipse for LAMP and EasyEclipse for PHP distributions.

If you install this plugin on another EasyEclipse distribution, the dependent plugin Eclipse Java Development Tools must be present in the EasyEclipse distribution, or must be installed separately.

Getting started

Help is available for this plugin, in the Help > Help Contents menu in EasyEclipse.

A Sample project presenting how to edit and validate can be created by choosing the menu File > New > Project > Examples... and selecting Editing and validating XML Files. A complete project will be created, including a readme.html presentation file, and examples of different ways of editing XML.

A set of wizards for new files are also available: select the menu File > New > Others..., then select one of the items in the Web, Web Services or XML subtrees.

Finally, the editors are registered as the default editors: when opening any file of the type above, the corresponding Web Tools editor will be used automatically.

Notes that several of the editors have two tabs: one for a structured or graphical editor (Design), and the other one for the raw file (Source).

xar: “Eclipse Web tools editors 1.5.2 for EasyEclipse 1.2″ does contain a DTD and W3c schema editor, though IT WILL NOT work on top of Eclipse 3.1. Those are designed to run on top of Eclipse 3.2.1 and EasyEclipse 1.2.1 based on Eclispe 3.2.
Your best bet is to download an EasyEclipse 1.2.1 distro that contains this plugin.

Note that WTP 2.0, which is the EasyEclipse 1.3 (Eclipse 3.3 Europa) release, supports WSDL 1.1, but not WSDL 2.0. Eclipse is not effective, unless you have a foo.xsd file in the same directory as foo.wsdl of your workspace. Eclipse does not necessarily check your xsd schema file, so you can just copy and rename such a file from the XML example project directory.

I can’t manage to get working “Eclipse Web tools editors 2.0.1″ plugin in my “Easy Eclipse for Python 1.3.1″ distribution. The latter is installed in /opt/easyeclipse and i run the script this way “./ /opt/easyeclipse”, which returns me a successful message. But when after (re)starting eclipse, the plugin is just not there.

Can anybody help me out please?

This plugin doesn’t seem to work with EasyEclipse Desktop Java - I get this error:

Eclipse Web tools editors (2.0.1) requires plug-in “system.bundle”

I had the same problem, and figured out a workaround. Briefly, the Eclipse Web Tools editors 2.0.1 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\ Web\ tools\ editors\ 2.0.1/eclipse/features/org.nexb.easyeclipse.eclipse-wtp-web_2.0.1/

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 Data Tools 1.5.1 plug-in.
