These instructions apply only to WTP 0.7 M3. Do not follow them for WTP 0.7 M4 and beyond.

The Web Services plugins require jars that are external to the WTP project and are not found in the current WTP builds. In order for these plugins to work properly, you must download (all!) of the zips and extract their jars to the appropriate location in the plugins.
  1. Before downloading, please read the licensing information that is associated with each downloadable file. The Apache License can be found at http://www.apache.org/licenses
  2. Create a temporary folder, like C:/temp/jars, which will hold all the jars. We'll refer to this folder as downloadPath from now on.
  3. Download the following items and put them in downloadPath:

  4. ItemFileLink
    Apache Axisaxis-1_1.ziphttp://xml.apache.org/dist/axis/1_1/axis-1_1.zip.
    JavaBeans Activation Frameworkjaf-1_0_2-upd.ziphttp://java.sun.com/products/javabeans/glasgow/jaf.html#download
    Apache Soapsoap-bin-2.3.1.ziphttp://www.apache.org/dist/ws/soap/version-2.3.1/soap-bin-2.3.1.zip
    Web Services Inspection Language for Javawsil4j.jarhttp://awwebx04.alphaworks.ibm.com/wsil4j/wsil4j.jar
    UDDI - Universal Description, Discovery and Integrationuddi4j-bin-2_0_2.ziphttp://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/uddi4j/uddi4j-bin-2_0_2.zip?download

  5. Now that you've successfully obtained all the zips in the downloadPath folder, we need to extract the jars from those zips and put them into the plugins that require them. You can do this manually, or you can run an ANT script that would do this for you automatically.

    • ANT Script - the ANT script fetchVendorContent.xml is found in the Web Tools CVS module org.eclipse.wtp.releng. This is how you run the script:

      ant -DlocalDownloads=downloadPath -DbuildDirectory=<Eclipse plugins directory> -f fetchVendorContent.xml

    • Manual - Otherwise here is a table that shows you where you should copy the jars. IMPORTANT, copy only the jars to the destination folder, AND ignore the directory structure of the source jar.

  6. If the Eclipse IDE is already running, close it down
  7. Restart Eclipse with the -clean argument for the changes to take effect.
