I corrupted my install of Eclipse on Saturday morning while trying to get the Spring IDE installed. Lucky for me, I follow one of the Eclipse Best Practices of keeping my workspace in a directory that is NOT under my Eclipse install. The only plugin I was using was the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP going forward).
Call me crazy but I find the install instructions for WTP to be VERY LACKING. I just get lost in the details they provide. First, I get to the instructions by clicking on FAQ from the WTP page. Then I click on #7, “How to install WTP.” From here I get frustrated trying to choose between the “auto” install and the “manual” install. The instructions for both seem a bit off, and out-dated.
I guess I’m issuing an official CALL FOR HELP. What’s the best route for installing WTP? Can I use the 3.2 M5 release?
