Eclipse Plugin v0.1.1 Released

After the recent release of Whiley v0.3.22 which updated the language syntax, I have now updated the Eclipse plugin accordingly.  See this page for more on installing the plugin from within Eclipse.

    I have problems installing this new plugin into Eclipse Kepler. I tried twice, but always get this error, which looks like one of the .jar files is corrupted?

    An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
    session context was:(profile=epp.package.standard, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
    Error closing the output stream for osgi.bundle,wyclipse.core,0.1.1 on repository file:/C:/Apps/eclipse/.
    Error unzipping C:\Users\MARKUT~1.AU\AppData\Local\Temp\wyclipse.core_0.1.11139505254842503401.jar: Invalid zip file format

    I am using Eclipse 4.3.1 on Windows 7 (64 bit).

    I can access the site.xml file okay, but when I try to access:
    http://whiley.org/eclipse/features/wyclipse.feature_0.1.1.jar
    I get a ‘Welcome to the ECS/MSOR websites’ login page – which might be another possible reason for Eclipse’s complaint?

    Thanks

  • Hey Mark,

    Thanks, others have posted this. Hmmm, you might well have pointed out the problem though … as I’m not exactly sure what the problem is…

  • Hey Mark,

    Ok, I fixed a permissions problem with the feature jar, and the plugins jars. I believe it does work now, although it’s difficult to properly test it since Eclipse caches files left, right and center.

    Please try again. I expect that it might fail the first time. If that happens, try going to Prefences->Install/Update->Available Update Sites, then select the one for whiley.org and click “reload”. Then, try installing the plugin as before. Even this might not be enough, as Eclipse may have cached the corrupted file in the directory “eclipse/p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.repository/cache” (and you can try deleting this directory, which is safe).

    Let me know you go!!

    Dave
