The proxy that we have will not allow us to update the Metrics plugin. We have to manually install the jars. I unzipped the jars into the plugin subdirectory, as I have done with other plugins, and restarted Eclipse. Metrics did not appear in the list of available views as the documentation indiates that is should. Are there any suggestions as to where to install the jars or anything else I could try. Any help to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated.
You probably resolved this by now. I had the same problem. I installed at home, then looked what changed in the features and plugins directory under eclipse (one new folder in each directory), and carried these to work on a thumb drive, and installation worked fine.
