  • STS 2.6.1 win7 64 Google Plugin for Eclipse installation fails

    Hi,

    I'm new to STS and GWT so I'm following instructions laid out here:
    http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/do...l/roo-sts.html
    1. installed bundle springsource-tool-suite-2.6.1.RELEASE-e3.6.2-win32-x86_64-installer.exe
    2. install Google Plugin for Eclipse from Extensions tab
    3. fail

    Here's the message (copy of log copylog.txt also attached):
    Problems occurred while performing installation: The following connectors are not available: Google Plugin for Eclipse (id=com.google.appengine.eclipse.sdkbundle.e36.fea ture.1.4.2.feature.group, com.google.gwt.eclipse.sdkbundle.e36.feature.2.2.0 .feature.group, site=http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/3.6)
    The following connectors are not available: Google Plugin for Eclipse (id=com.google.appengine.eclipse.sdkbundle.e36.fea ture.1.4.2.feature.group, com.google.gwt.eclipse.sdkbundle.e36.feature.2.2.0 .feature.group, site=http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/3.6)


    I then attempted to install the plugin from Help->Install New Software .. using site
    http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/3.6. No apparent errors, was prompted for restart of STS, did so. I couldn't find any confirmation that the plugin was installed, but optimistically went ahead with roo to install sample expenses app. After lengthy maven downloads ended up with

    1 required artifact is missing.

    for artifact:
    org.springsource.roo.extrack:extrack:war:0.1.0.BUI LD-SNAPSHOT

    from the specified remote repositories:
    spring-maven-milestone (http://maven.springframework.org/milestone),
    central (http://repo1.maven.org/maven2),
    maven.springframework.org.external (http://maven.springframework.org/external),
    spring-roo-repository (http://spring-roo-repository.springsource.org/release),
    spring-maven-release (http://maven.springframework.org/release),
    JBoss Repo (https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/c...ories/releases)


    I'm not eager to dig further .. I'm new to Maven as well. At this point I'd like to know if there's some way to fix the original install from Extensions in hopes that all else will fall into place. All I'm trying to do is get a proper development environment for GWT.

    Thanks,
    Mark M.

    Hi Mark!

    I can see the error showing up when trying to install the Google plugin from the extension install (seems to be a higher version available from Google that is declared on the extension list, I will take care of that). Anyway, if the messages shows up, you can proceed with installing the Google plugin and it will install correctly into STS. Can you try that?

    HTH,
    Martin

      Hi Martin,

      Thanks for responding, I appreciate it.

      If I understand you correctly, you're suggesting I install the Google plugin outside of the extension install. Also I'm not clear on what message you mean when you say 'if the messages shows up' or when.

      I have installed the Google plugin outside of extension install, as I said in my email; I must be missing something. There was no apparent error, but then subsequently there were errors in trying to setup the expenses app through roo. Perhaps they're completely separate issues.

      Thanks,
      Mark M.

        Hey Mark!

        When I have a fresh STS installed and go to the extension install and try to install the Google plugin, I get a warning dialog showing up saying "the following connectors are not available Google Plugin for Eclipse - Proceed with the installation anyways?" (No/Yes). Then I pressed YES and the plugin got installed.

        The Roo issue is a separate issue, I think. When I create a new Roo project and execute the expenses.roo script, I don't get those maven errors you describe. Could you try to update the maven dependencies on that project? Maybe a maven download wasn't successful.

        HTH,
        Martin

          Hi Martin,

          Oh, I get you now .. thanks! I will try reinstall later from extension tab .. have to go off to work now.

          I'm sure you're right about roo being a separate issue. I could open another thread, or maybe you could give me a hint now about how to update the maven dependencies? I'm completely new to maven.

          Thanks,
          Mark M.

            Right click on project, maven -> update dependencies...

              Hey!

              I updated the definitions for the Google Plugin for the Extension Install listing. You should now be able to install the Google Plugin package from the dashboard again without any trouble.

              Cheers,
              -Martin

                Thanks, now the Google Plugin installs perfectly from the Extensions Tab.
