I've installed Alveole Struts 2 plugin 0.7.4 in Eclipse 3.4 for Mac OS Tiger, but I can't use the GUI: I can't scroll the plugin window, I can't select the inserted packages, ... it looks like a dead window!

  • Hi.

    Alveole Studio MVC Web Project uses an open-source Swing library (JUNG) to display tree nodes.

    To embed this library in Eclipse, we used SWT_AWT bridge, and this bridge is known to have a few issues, especially for MacOS. This bridge seem to have a fiew requirements to work on MacOS. See the following URL, and check again if it work after installing all requirements:

    http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#swtawtosx

    Then, if it does not work, try to capture console traces to see if an exception occurred, and post it in this bug.

    Anyway, at the moment, I do not plan to support MacOS - except if any contributor is volunteer to perform tests and bug fixes on mac... (I have no Mac to perform tests on... sorry for this).

    Tell us if it works better after installing SWT Compatibility Libraries.

  • Hi.

    Thanks for these logs. It seems that there is exception logged. And what about eclispe logs ?

    And have you tried http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#swtawtosx ?

    Regards.
