I am facing problem in configuring FLEX builder 3.0 plugin
with NWDS 7.0. When I tried to install the FLEX plugin, it gave me
warning to select Eclipse 3.2 or 3.3 version. I ignored the
warning(as NWDS built on top of Eclipse 2.0) and installed the FLEX
plugin. After launching NWDS, I am unable to see the FLEX
As FLEX builder 3.0 requires Eclipse 3.2 or above, I am
wondering If anybody configured FLEX plugin on top of NWDS and
using it to develop FLEX applications.
Appreciate any inputs with respect to configuring FLEX plugin
Someone from Adobe might be able to answer more definitely
but it's probably just not considered compatible with a modified
Eclipse (at least, the installer). It may just be the installer
blowing up when it shouldn't. I think Adobe doesn't want to support
install configurations that they don't have setup and tested. I had
a similar issue once and solved it by doing the following... not
sure if it'll work, and it's more of a last resort:
Setup a regular eclipse install - install the plugin there.
Somehow, you'll have to keep track of all the files it adds, either
using timestamps or some compare software. It should be a bunch of
files and/or folders in the '/plugins' directory, and possibly a
few others in '/configuration', maybe '/features'. Take all the new
folders and any jar files etc, and drop them into the same folders
in your special Eclipse version. Hopefully when you start it up
you'll get the Flex functions...
Of course, you could end up hosing your entire "NWDS"
(whatever this is) install. So you probably want to test it out
