I am pleased to announce WebSphere Application Server V9.x Developer Tools 23.2 is now available here on the Eclipse Marketplace! This version supports Eclipse 2023-06 and 2023-09. Known issues can be found here: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6841611

On earlier versions of this plugin it was possible to code jython script for was administration. It would also required another plugin, Pydev. I have used it exetensively for was v8.5. Is it still possibel to do it for the current version of this plugin? I have hard time to guess tjhe right eclipse/pydeve/Websphere developer tools , combination
Submitted by Matt Colegate on Thu, 02/15/2024 - 07:25
Although we've not tested this, I don't see why not - jython is still supported for WAS scripting https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/was/9.0.5?topic=scripting-using-wsadmin-jython
In terms of version to use, I'm also guessing, but I think you should use Eclipse IDE for Enterprise Java and Web Developers 2023-12, WDT 23.2 and Pydev 12 - I managed to install those but haven't used it in anger. I followed the instructions for 'Installing from the update site' on the Pydev installation instructions page.
I don't think WDT would run on LiClipse because I think it's based on Eclipse for Java Developers and WDT needs the extra plugins for Enterprise Java to work.

Thanks for this - we are aware of breakages of this nature with Eclipse 2023-06 but not Eclipse 2023-03.
Can you please supply the link you downloaded Eclipse 2023-03 from and we will attempt to recreate this.

This actually happens also with "IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5x Developer Tools" on Eclipse versions 2023-06, 2023-03 and 2022-12. On Eclipse Eclipse 2022-09 it appears to be working fine.

Yes it is, you need to mirror the repository artifacts and metadata using the Equinox p2 mirroring repository tools from Eclipse. The source URL can be found by clicking the download icon on the far right of the 4 icons under the Install button above and selecting the URL appropriate to your version of Eclipse.

i installed the Plugin V22.2 into Eclipse 2022-03 (4.23.0) and getting multiple Errors when editing Java Files:
Error "Requesting Java AST from selection" caused by:
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: 'boolean com.ibm.icu.text.UTF16.isSurrogate(char)'
As a result, the Java editor can no longer be used properly. Unless you disable "Java/Editor/Mark Occurrences". Is there another way to turn off this error? Or is there a prospect of a new plugin version that works with Eclipse 2022-12? (The problem is said to have been fixed there)

Hi Ralph, I'm sorry to hear you experienced this issue and thank you for reporting it. Could you please let me know which JVM you are using both in eclipse.ini and within Eclipse to run the project?

Hi Mark - please accept my apologies, the developer tooling for tWAS does not support Eclipse 2022-06. The latest supported version of Eclipse for this tooling is 2020-06. Thank you.

I'm not able to install WAS Dev Tools v9.x for Eclipse v 2020-06. I tried installing it using Eclipse Marketplace and also by taking the appropriate URL from this page and selecting 'Install New Software', both methods didn't work. In both cases I got the same error:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=epp.package.jee, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Unable to read repository at (I was not allowed to paste the link).
Read timed out
When checking the health status of WAS Dev Tools v9.x, it has all red 'X's on each version
I assume that's not a good sign? I wanted to try and download the ZIP file to install it manually but I don't see a way to access it for download, can you help please?

In reply to Error installing WDT v9 in Eclipse v4.16 (2020-06) by Vaneet Lotay
Hi Vaneet, thank you for reporting this and I'm sorry to hear about the issues you had installing the Dev Tools. DHE has had some stability issues recently and so I believe that was what was occurring at the time you were trying to install. I have successfully installed the tools on a fresh 2020-06 Eclipse today. Could you please try again and let me know if you have any more issues?

After restarting Eclipse, I just tried it again both in Eclipse Marketplace and using the Install New Software option in Eclipse, both resulting in the same error again. It can't access the jar 'com.ibm.websphere.v9.core_1.100.1.v20200826_1754.jar'. I can't paste the full link due to the restrictions in these comments but I'd be happy to privately if you give me a way or if I need to get patched to technical support that's fine too. If there was a way I could install the plugins from a ZIP file like it says in some of these tutorials so it would avoid trying to install the plugin by accessing packages via the web, that would help but I don't know how to access the one for WebSphere dev tools v9. Can you point me to how to download the ZIP file? Or can you help me diagnose the issue with not being able to access that jar file? I would appreciate it immensely as this affects my ability to use Eclipse to do my work.

I'd just like to post that with the help of a coworker we figured out what the issue was. If I use the method which involves the option 'Install New Software' in Eclipse, it needs a URL for the repository basically which I can obtain from this page for my Eclipse version. When I was pasting the URL and going through with the install for WDT v9 it was always ending in that same error that it couldn't find the jar file. I noticed the URL began with 'http', if I tried 'https', it worked fine. I would suggest if possible for you guys to change all the links to 'https' in these marketplace pages as it may avoid further issues from other users, just a suggestion.

I have done several tests and can't normally see the issue you describe. The only time I did hit was when i disconnected my VPN halfway through the install. That might even be a red herring as for all I know that could have been coincidental. It looks like the site automatically redirects any http traffic to https ... and I have been able to download com.ibm.websphere.v9.core_1.100.1.v20200826_1754.jar using http or https.
Having said that I changed the url to https anyway and retested as as it didn't cause any failures I have left it like that. I'm not sure if that will help with your particular error ... please try it and get back to us.
The fact that your experience that http does not get redirected to https (just on a browser download of the jar in question) concerns me.
Cheers ... Dave

2021-06 is listed under "Eclipse Versions:" but it's not compatible. The last line of the description "Eclipse version 2020-06 or before" is probably more accurate, but that's pretty old.
The part of the URL that ends up being "install_not_applicable_for_this_version_of_eclipse" should be the version-specific path to resources; lots of people are getting that because it shows up in the Eclipse Marketplace for unsupported Eclipse versions. I find this level of support is pretty normal for IBM's open source contributions.

Yes, WDT for v9 works with Eclipse 2020-06 or prior. Appreciate the feedback. We are working to address the noted issues. Thank you.
(FYI that WDT for v8.5/9 isn't open sourced.)

Turned out the company proxy uses an 'improved' malware scanner or a new configuration looking into the downloaded files and finding something suspicious. Our bad.
Thanks a lot for responding

It works with Eclipse IDE 2020-09 or prior with Java 8.

Eclipse 2020-12 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.

I have the same issues and I'd rather not have to maintain plugins for two separate installations of Eclipse.
I agree that the WebSphere development plug-ins need to support the newer Eclipse versions and their pre-requisites.

I couldn't debug in ejb classes on WAS v9.
Hot reload is failing with small text change. It's specific to WAS v9. I could see in all the versions (Fix pack) of v9. But, not on earlier WAS versions or Websphere Liberty Profile.
Can you provide any workaround ?.

I couldn't reproduce the issue and it seems to be more related to the network issue during your install. Check if the update site is up and running and try to install again.
