There are failed tasks.

Is there any pre-requisite? I also tried to install Zulu Java 17, doesn’t make a change.

Could it be that it is still this problem: [Solved]Eclipse install ?

yup, 2022-03 release works


No unfortunately not still same error…

My system:
Linux 5.10.0-20-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.158-2 (2022-12-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux
openjdk version “17.0.4” 2022-07-19
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 17.0.4+8-Debian-1deb11u1)

2 java versions installed.

I had to reinstall my Eclipse IDE today, and I wanted to use the OH preconfigured setting scripts HERE.

However I can confirm that the OH specific installation also FAILED for me on Windows when trying to install Eclipse 2022/12 version with the OH project specific scripts.

On the other hand, the following installs do work…

  • Eclipse 2022/12 plain vanilla install
  • Eclipse 2022/03 install with OH project specific settings

Now (IMHO) it would be really really nice to get Eclipse 2022/12 (or even 2023/03) with OH specific scripts… … so two questions…

  1. Is there some way to manually get the best of both worlds i.e. the latest IDE version, WITH the OH project specific settings?

  2. Is anyone working on an update of the OH project specific installer scripts so that they will once again work with the latest Eclipse IDE install?

Sorry but I don’t see any connection between that thread and this thread. ??
