Installation Issues

Thanks for the plugin - a very cool tool.

Anyway I had an install problem which I think is a bug. Within the Installed JREs, I pointed eclipse to the root dir of the jdk1.5.0_06 (d:\Program Files\jdk1.5.0_06). With this setting, the rmi plugin didn't find the tools.jar which I made sure was in the lib dir.

Once I pointed to the tools.jar file specificly in the project's RMI Compiler Properties - Use non-standard tools.jar location (d:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06\lib\tools.jar; the plugin found it and compiled things normally.

Perhaps there's an issue with my not using the C:\ drive...?

Thanks for looking into it,

Hi Don,

I will look into it. Can you look at the log file
and see if there is anything related to RMI there?

You can open the log file by opening the
error log view "Window->Show View->Error Log"
and then right clicking on the view and selecting "Open log".

You can either re-download the plugin or use Eclipse Update to get the new version (in update the new version is numbered
