Pinned topic Eclipse plugin not functioning

‏2008-02-04T19:52:20Z |
Anybody have any luck with this? The install instructions are not up to date and when I do get it installed I get a NoSuchAlgorithmException: IbmX509KeyManagerFactory not available. It assumes I'm running with IBMs version of the JRE perhaps?

    Did you go through the process of importing the DataPower certificate (root-ca-cert.pem) into the Java Key Store used by Eclipse? This process is outlined in the EclipseManagementPlugin.pdf document available from the DataPower Documentation site (https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/swg-datapower/index.shtml)

      Yes, my only deviation from the install documentation was the version of java that I'm using. Also the zip file contained a features and a plugins directory. The documentation says to copy the entire folder to your eclipse home directory but I could only get the datapower perspective to work by copying the contents of the features directory into features and doing the same with plugins.

      When I open the datapower perspective and attempt to connect to datapower is when I get the NoSuchAlgorithmException.

        Hmm... Well, your installation sounds fine. I did some testing with my own setup, and here's what I found. (In each case, I had to import the SSL Public Certificate in use by the XML Management Interface into the appropriate Java Kestore in jre/lib/security/cacerts...)

        1. If I ran my basic Eclipse with Sun JRE 1.4.2, 1.5.0, or 1.6.0, I experienced your problem (or a slight variation thereof).
        2. If I ran my basic Eclipse with IBM JRE 1.4.2, or 1.6.0, I had no problem.

        Note that I used the -vm command line argument, pointing to the appropriate jre/bin directory, to change the JRE used to launch Eclipse.

        So, I recommend you download the latest IBM SDK here: https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=idpe&S_TACT=105AGX05&S_CMP=JDK

        It looks like that comes bundled with Eclipse 1.2.2. If you elect not to use that (older) version of Eclipse, then you can use the -vm option with your existing Eclipse to point to the eclipseDevelopmentPackage\ibm_sdk60\jre\bin directory of that IBM SDK package.

        I'm not sure if there is an easier way to override the X509 implementation in Sun's JRE... either way, I think you'd need the IBM code somewhere. Maybe someone else can chime in if they know an easier way.

        At least this should get you running.

          Sure Java runs everywhere... as long as you are running the correct version of Java. I got the same issue here and cannot get this thing running. I guess the QA is not very good.

          Any chance of talking to the developer and make the plugin available to people who to do not own an IBM Laptop, thus cannot install (or even better don't want to install ) the IBM JRE ?

          Thanks

              Hello...

              Actually I was more making a sugestion than a trying to make anyone change code. As a lot of IBM folks read these forums, maybe someone notices things like this and remembers it next time they start a similar project.

              I got to a point where I had the plugin installed, and it didn't work. Willing to change my working environment (hey I really was open to try this) I gave up after I tried to download the IBM JRE and got a notice that it would not work on non IBM computers, so it seemed to me that this is not quite there yet. It did cross my mind of opening a PMR, but I think Darwin will apply here, this will either be fixed in a more open fashion or the plugin will die. All in all I am happy with the web interface.

              Have a good one.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem.

    Neither SUN nor IBM JREs are working for me. Does anybody have a solution?

    Thanks in advance

      Was this problem ever resolved 'officially', or has it been left to die? I can't imagine there are many prepared (or able) to run an ancient IBM JDK, so if they won't fix it perhaps they could release the code to the community instead.
      Anway, I worked out how to fix it and got it working with a non-IBM JDK if anyone is interested. The problem was the code wrongly depended on an IBM-specific part of its crypto implementation. This was easily spotted by decompiling the .jar and fixed by recompiling with the correct X509 keymanager lookup. Well at least it works on my Sun JDK 1.6 (Windows)...

        Hi,
        I am following this link to do the plug ins needed. However I am not finding the source location, where I can download Eclipse Management Plugin. Can anyone please tell me whether I am using the correct link.

          Please check the following link for step by step instruction and downloading and installing the eclipse plugins.

          http://thysmichels.com/2010/06/05/installing-the-eclipse-management-plugin-for-the-datapower-appliance/

          Please download the IBM development package. It consists of a ready-to-run version of eclipse and IBM Java. The Datapower eclipse plugins work only with IBM Java and not with Sun JRE.

            Hello

            I don't understand why it doesn't work

            I have an error message : com.ibm.jsse2.util.g:PKIX path building failed: java.security.cert.CertPathBuilderException: unable to find certification path to requested target

            Is there a different way with firmWare 4.0.2?

                I have no solution to your problem, but the Eclipse Plugin was deprecated in 3.8.2. I think. This could be related to the cause here.

        I'd be keen to hear how you got it going in a modern Oracle JDK actually. I have a client wanting some flexibility around which JDK they use.
