I've installed both 32 and 64 bit versions of Indigo J2EE SR2 and then installed the WAS Dev v8.5 using the drag/drop from https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/wasdev/entry/download_wdt?lang=en
Once this has been done and eclipse restarted, if you create a static (or dynamic) web project and create a new HTML 5 file it will attempt to open in the Rich Text Editor and will throw an exception:
at java.lang.J9VMInternals.verifyImpl(Native Method)
at java.lang.J9VMInternals.newInstanceImpl(Native Method)
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.eclipse.jetty.server.Handler
... 9 more
I believe if you use the Eclipse HTML editor this does not occur (tested before installing WAS tools). The class is in the org.eclipse.jetty.server_7.5.1.v20110908.jar plugin so I'm not sure why it isn't found.
Is there a workaround? Once this happens, exiting Eclipse sometimes creates a javacore and exits with an error. I've also found the HTML Validator goes out to lunch requiring a forced shutdown of Eclipse. Is there a fixpack available for this toolkit?
There is also an error in the log upon startup stating Invalid preference page path: Service Testing.
I'd opened an error with Eclipse but they closed it as an error with WAS dev...

Re: Rich Text Editor faults with org.eclipse.jetty.server.Handler class not fou2012-11-21T14:27:43ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I found a few things to mitigate this problem.
I switched to using Juno over Indigo. This seemed to help with the HTML problem when using the Rich Text Editor (though I also configured this in window preferences to default to showing the Source view).
I also found some references to the javacore problem in the Eclipse buglist that suggested there was a problem with the IE 9 jscript.dll and they recommended adding the following line to the header:
<meta http-equiv= "X-UA-Compatible" content= "IE=EmulateIE8">
However, I found a preview version of IE 10 for Windows 7 and elected to install that instead.

Re: Rich Text Editor faults with org.eclipse.jetty.server.Handler class not fou2012-11-27T20:23:05ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.For the NoClassDefFoundError that breaks the Rich Page Editor, this problem is fixed in the latest refresh of the tools (version 8.5.1) which was recently released. You can search from Help->Eclipse Marketplace for "WebSphere Development Tools" to find the latest version.
The problem generally indicates something went wrong with the original marketplace install, since the editor saw and tried to use Juno's version of Jetty rather than the one in the base Indigo install. Similar problems have occurred in the past so the updates to the editor code work around such installation issues to always pick a suitable version. As a result you should no longer see this exception and the editor should function as expected.
