A problem with eclipse plugins

  Asked By: Daryl    Date: Jun 06    Category: Java    Views: 480

I am a begginer with eclipse,when I want to add a plugin to the eclipse IDE ,
I use two the following two ways:
1-when I use the "find and update" wizard from help menu there won't be any problems
and eclipse know the plugin but such kind of plugins are rarely found.

2-download the plug in,extract it then copy to plugins directory and restart the IDE but it can not recognize it and there won't be any changes in wizards.
what shall I do?
for example I need JBOSS IDE plugin for creating web modules right now, but the above ways did not help yet

First, make sure you are using the correct version of Eclipse in regard of JBoss IDE Requisites and second make sure there is no other J2EE plug-ins installed on your Eclipse.

Download the plugin  file as (zipped), unzip it and
copy contents of both folders :
1. plugin
2. features
to the existing folders of eclipse.

While doing such activity verify the versions. Some
plugins dont work if they are not targeted to the
specified versions.
