I've downloaded and installed Eclipse Neon 3. Then I go to the marketplace, find the plugin and ask for its installation by clicking the "Install" button.

Then it shows what it will install but it does not install the "bluemix" plugin.

With Eclipse Photon, I just can't see the plugin in the list.

- Does this plugin still work?

- What is the solution with Eclipse Photon?

What is the new solution to integrate Eclipse PHOTON with Bluemix?

I just tried the installation by following the instructions in, downloaded Neon.3 and install via the Eclipse Marketplace in Eclipse and I can install the IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix successfully. Can you try follow that instruction to see if that resolves the problem?  In case you still see the installation problem, can you let us know what platform are you running on and the exact error message that you are seeing during the installation?

When I am installing IBM Bluemix plugin from Help ----> Eclipse Marketplace ---> search for Bluemix.

It is only showing 1 plugin i.e. "IBM Eclipse tool for Bluemix for Neon" ,  When I click on Install, it is asking for 5 subplugins along with it

1. Cloud Foundry Tools care

2. Cloud Foundry Tools UI

3. IBM Bluemix tools

4. Websphere Application Server Liberty Toold

5. Websphere Application Server Migration Toolkit


, and I checked them all and proceed for installation. In installation process, it is telling me that selected plugins could not be installed " 1, 2, 3 and 4th " . It is telling that only the 5th plugin i.e. Websphere Application Server Migration Toolkit

will be installed.

Can anyone help me what is the issue here ?

FYI, I am using Version: Kepler Service Release 1 abd jdk is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_80 .

Can we not install Bluemix plugins in Eclipse Kepler version?

Bluemix is moving from DEA to Diego. Will this version support Diego?

Yes, this version supports both DEA and Diego.

While installing Bluemix plugins from Help ---> Eclipse marketplace, it is asking me for 5 plugins. I checked them all. But while proceeding for installation, I am getting like this :
Following versions could not be installed :
1. Cloud Foundry Tools Core
2. Cloud Foundry Tools UI
3. IBM Bluemix tools
4.  Websphere Application Server Liberty tools

and only this could be installed
5. Websphere Application Server Migration Toolkit

Can anyone help me with this? Shall I proceed with only 1 plugin installation or it is coming because of my Eclipse version?

I do wish that it would apply a theme to Eclipse as a whole instead of just the editor windows.
