I have tried to install the Glassfish-Eclipse plugin as per instructions at
https://glassfishplugins.dev.java.net/download/

I have the latest version of Eclipse so I followed the instructions for Milestone 0.2.1. The zip file
glassfish-eclipse-plugin_0_3.zip did not contain
glassfish-eclipse-plugin_installer_0_2.jar
which the instructions imply. Rather it contains
com.sun.enterprise.jst.server.sunappsrv_1.0.0.jar
and some other (including NetBeans-related).

I could NOT therefore carry out the instruction
java -jar glassfish-eclipse-plugin_installer_0_2.jar

The files contained in glassfish-eclipse-plugin_0_21.zip as follow :
[i]org.netbeans.modules.schema2beans
org-netbeans-modules-j2ee-sun-dd.jar
com.sun.enterprise.jst.server.sunappsrv_1.0.0.jar[/i]

after I unzip these files to the
[i]D:\eclipse-SDK-3.1-win32\eclipse\plugins[/i]
and run my eclipse then to create new server
there is no such results showed at
[i]https://glassfishplugins.dev.java.net/specifications/introduction.html[/i]

As I thought it is the error link to the plugin files the server provided,
[u][i]https://glassfishplugins.dev.java.net/download/[/i][/u]
, so I think we should recommend the administrator to
give us the correct link to the plugin files

Just now I have run the glassfish plugin successfully,
that's because I think that WTP is a default plugin
shipped with eclipe, now I know that I'm wrong, very
sorry to rebuke the administrator, that's not the link's
error,
You can got the wtp-sdk-R-1.0.3 here:
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/webtools/downloads/d...

After you finished the installation of wtp and glassfish plugin restart you eclipse
You can found the plugin platform at :
Window/Preferences.../Plugin Development/Target Platform/com.sun.enterprise.jst.server.sunappsrv
at the plug-ins tab, than you can new the glassfish server at
File/New/Other.../Server

The first step of the instructions is:

"For Milestone 0.2.1 and later, download the zip file and just unzip it in the Eclipse directory. (This dir should have a sub directory called "plugins")"

No other steps are needed.

Many thanks.
I am new to Eclipse so apologies for asking very basic questions.
I now don't know what I should now do to get to the dialog for chosing the server as shown in the screenshot. It appears (from earlier threads) that I need to install the J2EE standard tools and then do some other stuff. Could you help on how to do this?

I will not deny that the Eclipse J2EE installation is a still messy, compared to say NetBeans 5.5.

If you want to install Eclipse and its J2EE support, I recommend you reading:
http://www.eclipse.org/callisto/java.php , and the J2EE related links regarding help guides to just install the product.

If you still cannot figure out, another option for beginning is to try NetBeans 5.5 that comes completely configured out of the boss for a productive Java EE development, and GLassFish.
Remember that Eclipse 3.2 does not support yet the Java EE 5 spec development. Only J2EE 1.4 or lower is supported there.
Thanks.
