On this post I share the details that I use for installing AWS on the eclipse 2019-0, using Ubuntu 16.04.6
- Use the “Ubuntu Software” app to install Eclipse 2019-03, directly from the main Ubuntu repo
- Do not look for AWS in the Eclipse marketplace it won’t work if you install it from there, you will experience an error like: https://github.com/aws/aws-toolkit-eclipse/issues/144
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software currently installed: Amazon RDS Management 1.0.0.v201807201743 (com.amazonaws.eclipse.rds.feature.feature.group 1.0.0.v201807201743)
Missing requirement: Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) Plugin 1.0.0.v201807201743 (com.amazonaws.eclipse.rds 1.0.0.v201807201743) requires 'osgi.bundle; org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.ui.dse 1.1.0' but it could not be found
Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: Amazon RDS Management 1.0.0.v201807201743 (com.amazonaws.eclipse.rds.feature.feature.group 1.0.0.v201807201743)
To: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu; com.amazonaws.eclipse.rds [1.0.0.v201807201743,1.0.0.v201807201743]
To correctly install AWS for eclipse follow the steps that I am documenting here but are also available at: https://aws.amazon.com/eclipse/
- Open Help, Install New Software…
https://aws.amazon.com/eclipsein the text box Work with: enter AWS Core for a name
- Select the required “AWS Core Management Tools” and any prefered add on: AWS Deployment tools and AWS Developer tools are some good add ons.
- Click “Next.”
