  • help : webflow editor doesn't work !! (

    Dear all,

    I am a novice in spring and I want to create a project with the webflow editor.

    I am using Eclipse 3.2 (callisto) with Spring IDE 1.3.2 (work ok) and I downloaded Spring WebFlow Editor ( but I can't find a doc for its instalation to include it into eclipse. I would like to have in my eclipse the editor like in this page .

    thank you for any help or advice

    Unfortunately that will not do any good to your IDE. You will have manually configure the Webflow in your IDE. I am assuming that you have all the Eclipse UI and spring IDE configured.

    Here is how you do it.

    goto this URL

    get the following files
    org.springframework.ide.eclipse.web.flow.core_0.0. 3.jar
    org.springframework.ide.eclipse.web.flow.ui.editor _0.0.3.jar

    then goto this URL
    get this file


    explode these files in respective directories of eclipse plugins and features.

    Make sure that your create separate directories for each of these jar and then explode into it. It will be easier to maintain.

    Once all of the above step are done then just restart your eclipse and you should be able to show view for Webflow.

      thank's for your configuration setup.

      Unfortunately, when I open a flow definition I get the following exception:
      ava.lang.ClassCastException: org.eclipse.ui.part.FileEditorInput
      at org.springframework.ide.eclipse.web.flow.ui.editor .WebFlowEditor.superSetInput( 6)

      The Webflow Property Dialog (Projekt->Properties->Webflow) is empty and an error message "invalid values on page" appears.

      With SpringIde 1.3.4 I had no luck at all (don't even open the editor).

      Any Idea's how to solve the problems for Eclipse 3.2, SpringIde 1.3.2 ???

      Thank you very much in advance,
