Living & Breathing in Web 2.0 Era

Eclipse WTP & JBoss Tools installation in Windows Vista

I have downloaded these two files from Eclipse website according to Max’s blog instructions.
1. wtp-all-in-one-sdk-R-2.0.1-20070926042742-win32.zip
2. JBossTools-2.0.0.GA-ALL-win32.zip
When I tried to unzip #1 zip file directly under c:\Program Files I got an error like this.

How did I solve it?
I opened up Windows ‘Control Panel’ -> ‘User Accounts and Family Safety’
Next, I clicked ‘User Accounts’, the following page has a list of things
I clicked ‘Turn User Account Control on or off’ and unchecked ‘User Account Control (UAC)’. I had to restart my computer to take the new change in effect.

How did I know that JBoss 2.0 was downloaded successfully.
The directory structure should look like this after unzipped two zip files. Make sure you unzip both zip files in a same directory. I screwed up first time, this is important.
Now by double clicking c:\program\eclipse\eclipse.exe should bring up Eclipse SDK.
Under Window -> Open Perspective, Web Development icon should shows up.

Now JBoss’s sexy tool pallets should be ready to roll.

  1. Hobione – this is an excellent blog. I’m going to buy a new laptop and it will have MS Vista on it. I want to load JAVA, Eclipse, JBOSS, Oracle, etc to work on web app development. Do you use Vista regularly? Have you had much trouble?

    • You should be fine. I have been running Vista over two years, so far so good.

      • Hobione – would you have any installation procedure notes for installing jboss on Vista (Home Premium 64 bit edition) or can you direct me to someone who might. I installed it, but it’s not up and running yet. I really appreciate any tips. I’m going to turn off the user account control and see how that goes and then explore the run.bat. There’s a bunch of output in the boot.log, but i haven’t been able to detect anything yet that would give me a clue as to what settings need to be changed.

        thanks again,
