Installing P4Eclipse Manually

« Go Back

Information

 
Problem

On rare occasions difficult-to-resolve errors can occur when installing P4Eclipse through Eclipse's usual plugin installation mechanism using the update site or installing from local zip archive.  The core plugin consists of several jar files and directories that need to be deployed to the right location off of the Eclipse installation root, which can be deployed manually.

Solution

Obtain the appropriate P4Eclipse plugin version from our FTP site.

ftp://ftp.perforce.com/perforce/r12.2/bin.java/p4eclipse42.zip

 

* Note that this example uses release 2012.2, build 486944, and these values will change over time.

Unzip the archive obtained from the FTP site into a temp directory.

unzip C:\Temp\p4eclipse42.zip

 

A few jars must be unpacked.

jar -xvf com.perforce.team.feature_2012.2.486944.jar
jar -xvf com.perforce.team.ui_2012.2.486944.jar
jar -xvf com.perforce.team.help.ui_2012.2.486944.jar
jar -xvf com.perforce.team.branding_2012.2.486944.jar

 

In the Eclipse install directory (ECLIPSE_HOME), move the components to the plugins and features directories as appropriate.

ECLIPSE_HOME\
     features\
          com.perforce.team.feature_2012.2.486944\*  (directory)

     plugins\
          com.perforce.p4api_2012.2.486944.jar
          com.perforce.team.core_2012.2.486944.jar
          com.perforce.team.ui.text_2012.2.486944.jar
          com.perforce.team.help.ui_2012.2.486944\* (directory)
          com.perforce.team.ui_2012.2.486944\*  (directory)
          com.perforce.team.branding_2012.2.486944\*  (directory)

Restart Eclipse in order to see the new Perforce perspective.
