STS does not show Spring PerspectivePage Title Module
I guess there is a package uses conflict going on behind the scenes, maybe the PDT installation added some bundles to your install that are now causing a conflict with the Spring/STS bundles. So you used STS 2.7.1 and added PDT from the Indigo update site?
You could also take a look at the bundles that are running within your Eclipse/STS by opening the Console view and selecting OSGi Host Console. Using the "ss" command you see all the installed bundles with their state. Can you also take a look at the spring related ones to see if there is a bundle that is maybe just "installed"? Then you can get more info using "diag " followed by the number of the bundle you wanna analyze.
I tried to install PDT into a fresh STS 2.8.1 installation without any problems or conflicts showing up. Did you try a fresh install? And did you try the OSGi bundle console commands I mentioned to figure out what exactly caused the problem?
I am having a similar issue with STS 2.7.2 When I run sts for the first time everything is fine and as soon as I run the available updates or install subclipse the spring perspective goes haywire and and it eventually disappears. I rans the ss command and see a lot of bundles related to springsource in the installed state. I don't know what to do from here and because of constraints at work I'm unable to upgrade to a higher version of sts.
It looks like there are incompatible components installed automatically in your case. Can you try to start with a fresh STS installation, and then disable all the available update sites (Preferences -> Install/Update -> Available Update Sites) in order to avoid accidental updates.
If that doesn't help, please let me know exactly what you are doing after the fresh STS 2.7.2 installation and I will try to reproduce this locally to find a solution for you.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I have installed a fresh copy of STS 2.7.2 just now and it was working fine. Then I installed subclipse 1.6.18 and restarted STS. STS come up and the dashboard has the following error populating it:
