My installation of the latest RCP Developer and SWT Designer on top of MyEclipse 6.0 includes the help text for "Plug-In Development Environment". But it doesn't include "Platform Plug-in Developer Guide", which has the SWT Javadocs. Where can I get a download of the SWT Javadocs that is sanctioned by Instantiations to not to mess up RCP Developer or SWT Designer?

Considering that the associated book is a companion volume to the book from Eric Clayberg and company, and it comes highly recommended, I was amazed that their software update site would so totally hose up a current version of Eclipse.

Neither RCP Developer, nor MyEclipse is installing the "Platform Plug-in Developer Guide". According to my understanding, this is what actually contains the SWT documentation. The documentation appears to be inside of "plugins\org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv_3.3.1.r331_v20070913.jar", or whatever version of the jar is pertinent.

I'm not sure what problem you ran into, but we have never had a problem installing either product into any version of MyEclipse. In fact, our records indicate that we have more than 3,000 current users of both products that have installed and activated them in MyEclipse.
That's because the MyEclipse plug-in does not include Eclipse. You need to install MyEclipse and point to your Eclipse RCP installation then install RCP Developer and point to your Eclipse installation not MyEclipse.
If you use the MyEclipse all-in-one package then you can install RCP Developer into MyEclipse.
arick wrote:I had downloaded Eclipse RCP, then ran the MyEclipse plug-in installer executable and accepted all the default locations. TTBOMK, this is a perfectly valid configuration and it runs MyEclipse just fine. Unfortunately, in this configuration, the installation executable for RCP Developer didn't believe that the MyEclipse directory was a valid Eclipse directory. It wasn't selected by default and the RCP Developer installer wouldn't recognize it when I tried to point at it during installation. Consequently, regardless of whether I activated Eclipse from the C:\Eclipse directory, or from the "C:\Program Files\MyEclipse 6.0" directory, the option to select or activate RCP Developer was never present.
