Pinned topic WAS 7.0 Eclipse Juno Plugin - can't find runtime

‏2013-09-09T14:30:04Z |

One of my team members is having difficulty with the WAS 7.0 Eclipse plugin for Juno. He's installed the WAS developer edition from the IBM Software Catalog and the plugin from the Eclipse marketplace. However, when he tries to add the WAS7.0 server, it says it can't the find the runtime environment, even though he has pointed Eclipse to the correct install location.

His machine is a Dell Latitude with Windows 7 Pro (x64).

I haven't been able to find anything online on what might be causing this issue. Has anyone encountered this issue and been able to fix it?

    WDT does not come with a WebSphere Application server  v7.0 server or stub.  Therefore, you'll need to manually install the 7.0 server and use that installation location to create the runtime environment.

      Hi Elson,

      My team member did install the server separately. Our company is an IBM Partner, and he used the Developer edition of WebSphere that is currently available in the IBM Software Catalog. We made sure that he installed the correct version, and in a directory his user name has write permissions to on Windows 7 (ex: C:\Users\{username}\IBM\WebSphere).

      Do you know if there is an issue with the version of WebSphere 7.0 shipped out with the Developer edition for Windows 7 x64?

        Hello,

        I tried this scenario (Installed WAS 7 Developer edition on Windows 7, 64 bits, and installed WDT in Juno SR2) and I was able to create the server runtime environment, create a server and start it.

        Maybe a silly question, but when you were creating the server runtime environment, did you specify the folder  C:\Users\{username}\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer?  I suppose the error you see is when creating the server runtime environment, something like "The WebSphere Application Server installation directory is not correct", right?

        Hi Adam,

        Assuming the server is installed in C:\Users\{username}\IBM\WebSphere, can you get me the following information:

        1. How many folders are in that directory? Also, as a rough sample, can you let me know if you see the "configuration", "java", "lib", "plugins", "properties", "runtimes", and "universalDriver" folders?

        2. If you go into C:\Users\{username}\IBM\WebSphere\plugins how many jars do you see in this directory? Also, as a rough sample, can you let me know if you see the plugins "com.ibm.ws.admin.core.jar", "com.ibm.ws.admin.services.jar", "com.ibm.ws.admin.system.jar", "org.apache.myfaces1_2.jar", and "org.eclipse.ant.core.jar"?

        3. Can you paste the contents of C:\Users\{username}\IBM\WebSphere\properties\version\WAS.product here?

        Thanks

          Hi Steven,

          Thanks for the tip on the WAS.product - it turns out 8.5.5 was installed, not 7.0.0.x. No wonder the Eclipse plug-in couldn't find it!

          I'll reach out to IBM to see how we can get a developer copy of WAS 7.0.

          Thanks everyone for your help!

          Adam
