Hi,

We are using update site to update eclipse with 1.3.9. We have a script that does this automatically.
But now we cannot find the 1.3.9 on the update site.
Can you put it there?
http://findbugs.cs.umd.edu/eclipse/site.xml

or do you have another url for older versions?

  • Hi Bill,

    as I do not have access to the server itself, can you please check what is doable?

    Technically we just need to let old feature + plugin jars at the old place and add the right entries to the update site xml.

    Regards,
    Andrey

  • Hi,

    I found out that the entry for 1.3.9 is in the site.xml

    http://findbugs.cs.umd.edu/eclipse/site.xml

    <site><description url="http://findbugs.cs.umd.edu/eclipse">
    This is the Eclipse update site for FindBugs features.
    </description><feature url="edu.umd.cs.findbugs.plugin.eclipse_1.3.9.20090821.jar" id="edu.umd.cs.findbugs.plugin.eclipse" version="1.3.9.20090821"><category name="FindBugs"/></feature><feature url="features/edu.umd.cs.findbugs.plugin.eclipse_2.0.0.20111221.jar" id="edu.umd.cs.findbugs.plugin.eclipse" version="2.0.0.20111221"><category name="FindBugs"/></feature><category-def name="FindBugs" label="FindBugs"><description>
    This is the Eclipse category for FindBugs features.
    </description></category-def></site>

    However the related jar files does not exist which results in the following error when updating eclipse in headless mode:

    !MESSAGE Unable to retrieve remote reference "http://findbugs.cs.umd.edu/eclipse/edu.umd.cs.findbugs.plugin.eclipse_1.3.9.20090821.jar". [Server returned HTTP response code: "404 Not Found" for URL: http://findb ugs.cs.umd.edu/eclipse/edu.umd.cs.findbugs.plugin.eclipse_1.3.9.20090821.jar.]

    Please help med to add that missing file on update site.
