I was trying to configure Websphere 8.5 server with STS, unfortunately not able to download it from marketplace.
It says "No repository found at public.dhe.ibm.com/install_not_applicable_for_this_version_of_eclipse".
Could you please provide me the workaround for this.

Hello. Which version of Eclipse are you using? WDT for 8.5 works with Eclipse 2020-06 or lower.

Can someone fix the error? I got the error as below with STS4.7.1.
No repository found at public.dhe.ibm.com/ibmdl/export/pub/software/websphere/wasdev/updates/wdt/2020-09_comp_was/.
Something must be wrong in the IBM repository.

I read that WebSphere Application Server V8.5x Developer Tools only works on Eclipse IDE releases up to and including 2020-06 at the moment.
So I downloaded 2020-06 and then try to install. I got the message that the respository cannot be found.

Why doesn't this show up in the Eclipse Marketplace client? Even if I drag the install button to my Eclipse workspace, all it does is lauch the Marketplace client which does not include this feature. I have searched over and over in the Marketplace client for IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5x Developer Tools and it nevers shows up. Is there a way to download it directly?

Today, as part of the plugin installation through Eclipse 2020-06 R, download of most JAR files seems to work except few files whose size is above 30 MB. Even when the download was tried from browser, those files could not be downloaded fully.
The files which failed to download were:
1. com.ibm.helpwar.doc_1.0.0.v20121212_0720.jar (35,190,973)

3. com.ibm.websphere.wdt.stubs_1.0.4.v20200826_1754.jar (44,824,252)
But we also noted that some files which were more than 30 MB could be downloded qucikly. Like:
Due to this issue, we are not able to install the required plugin

Eclipse 2020-09 needs Java 11 as a minimum version to run on. This seems to cause problems when using theses plugins. For example when creating a new WebSphere 8.5 server I get a popup: "IBM JRE Warning - An attempt was made to use a WebSphere Application Server specific function, which is only supported on JRE 6.0, 7.0 or 8.0.

The application server stops randomly and with the IBM Support we found out that the stop for the application server is sent from an local address.
It isn't stopped by myself.
If I work for ours with my applications on the WAS it works perfect, but then it could be that the server all 5 Minutes is stopped and I have to restart it.
With this output we could see that the shutdown is sent from local:

Generate web service router is not available in ejb file context
Submitted by Hisham Ragheb on Sun, 2016-02-28 05:30
When I right click my ear project in eclipse and choose to run my application the application is published and deployed on the server but web services are not published. I know in webspehere to publish my web services I must run endPtEnabler over my ear file before installation on the server to amend the ear file and add required websphere artifacts for web services.
As a work around for now, I had to generate the ear and apply endPtEnabler, and I wrote jython script to be used in eclipse run configuration to install/update the application, However, this is painful to do with every change since changes are not hot deployed and I had to install the ear and run the jython script for every change to be updated on the server.
Is there a way to configure eclipse plugin to publish web services directly when running the application through Run in the application context??
