As I am currently working with JBoss seam, I had to install JBoss Tools on my Fedora Eclipse 3.4.2 – Fedora 11 -.

So in order to share the procedure to every one and mostly to avoid to forget or lose it I decided to write it on this blog.

In addition, it permit to avoid eclipse/JBoss Tools problems dependence such as :


And Errors such as :

Cannot complete the request.  See the details.
Unsatisfied dependency: [ 3.2.4.v200909151014R-H192-GA] requiredCapability: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu/org.eclipse.wst.xml.core/1.1.0

So these are the steps :

I] Install Eclispe on your Fedora.

I.I] Open a terminal as standard user – here mine “fhornain” – and be root.

[fhornain@localhost ~]$ su –

[root@localhost ~]# yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel

[root@localhost ~]# yum install eclipse-platform

II ] Launch eclipse.

II.I] Indeed you should select in you Fedora main menu bar  Applications > Programming > Eclipse

If not, launch a terminal and run the following command :

[fhornain@localhost ~]$ eclipse -vm /usr/bin/java

Rem: Change the path /usr/bin/java if it is not your java default location

Then you should see the eclipse starting banner – see below –


II.II] Then eclipse should ask you where you would like to save your projects – see image below –

The default location should be fine – well, for me 😉 –

II.III] Then Welcome screen appears – see below -. Close it with a click on the top left cross.

III.VI] You should see appear a new line in the “Software updates and add-ons” window – see below –

Then click on next button, accept the term of the licence and click on  the finish button.

The packages installation starts – see above – :

Screenshot-Install -3

Finally the installation finish and the following window appear in order to reboot the eclipse IDE application – see below –

Click on the Yes button

III.IX ] Now we’ll do the same steps for JBoss Tools and Bitr as we did for Ganymed “Web and Java EE Development”.

You should see the entered JBoss Tools links done during III.III] and III.IV] steps then click on the JBoss Tools arrow and select JBoss Tools line – see above –

Screenshot-Software Updates and Add-ons -2

And do the same procedure as we did for Ganymed “Web and Java EE Development” at step III.VIII].

Let’s hope it clear.

Now you can play with seam and other JBoss projects… 🙂

IV] Launch Seam project with Eclipse and Jboss Tools.

IV.I] Indeed you should select in you Fedora main menu bar  Applications > Programming > Eclipse

If not, launch a terminal and run the following command :

[fhornain@localhost ~]$ eclipse -vm /usr/bin/java

Rem: Change the path /usr/bin/java if it is not your java default location

You should see appear the following window :

Every parents want the best for their children !

So among other, Parents subscribe for an ADSL service to a provider in order to have Internet at home and let their children freely read, write, learn and play with this amazing tool thinking it is a good thing for them.

At first glance, they are right !

Nonetheless and unfortunately Internet does also contain indecent contents, scams and so on…
Obviously YOU as adult already knows that.

But does YOUR CHILDREN know ?

So you have three choices :

1] Surf the internet with your children.
2] Let’s you children access freely to the Internet and do not care about what she/he/they is/are reading/learning/watching/etc…
3] Set Internet web site ACL- Access control List -/Black List

For my part, I will opt the third option.
So If you are like me then Open Source is the answer !

DansGuardian and SquidGuard are respectively content-control software – software designed to control which websites users can access – and Black List oriented software .
In addition, DansGuardian also includes virus filtering and usage monitoring features. Witch could be useful.
For more details, I invite you to go their respective web site – see below for URL –

BTW, these software can also be used in other domains than Children’s Internet Protection. You see what I mean ? e.g. In business compagny, firm. 😉

Rem: Maybe your provider already offer you this service via your ADSL box.

Message for my Fedora packager Friends, it should be nice to have DansGuardian packaged in the Fedora distribution.
Ok, I could do it myself but do not have time currently. 😦
Thanks for your time.
