Re: Eclipse - how to get plugins using FC5 eclipse

What kind of plugins are you trying to get?  As of right now there's no
"mega update site" where you can go and browse all of the plugins available

(it's going through the Extras submission process ATM -- see [1]) is
Subclipse.  I install it following the instructions here:


HI Andrew,

Thanks for you reply.
The plugins I am trying to get are all J2EE related. Like helping me in designing hibernate-EJB3 application.

In the meantime I have switched to the Eclipse application from eclipse.org, because I couldn't get any plugins at all using the Extras repository.

However, getting the plugins is still a problem: when I do so, the program gets very far in fetching the plugins, but then it hangs on obtaining one of them after which my internet connection is gone (disconnected). I have an always-on ADSL-connection. Also, I can see that the DSL-connection is still on, just the internet connection is gone. I have to reconnect and if I repeat the experience a few times, even reconnecting does not work.

Alas, it might not be the fault of the Extras repository. I am not even sure it is Eclipse. It might just be my modem: I have no idea where to start looking.

Anyway, I would welcome plugins through the Extras repository, a lot.

Yes, I agree that the whole update site/manager could use a re-design :) .
