Handling the Eclipse EMFT Error on Update

When updating Eclipse Europa, I found this error appearing:




Unable to access "http://download.eclipse.org/technology/emft/updates/".
Unable to access site: "http://download.eclipse.org/technology/emft/updates/" [Server returned HTTP response code: "403 Forbidden" for URL: http://download.eclipse.org/technology/emft/updates/.]
Server returned HTTP response code: "403 Forbidden" for URL: http://download.eclipse.org/technology/emft/updates/.
Unable to access site: "http://download.eclipse.org/technology/emft/updates/" [Server returned HTTP response code: "403 Forbidden" for URL: http://download.eclipse.org/technology/emft/updates/.]

Google wasn't much help on this one but, the Eclipse newsgroup was.

I found the solution on the EMFT Update Site. Now, if the latest builds on Europa would include this information.......

The solution is to add some more update sites while ignoring the pre-configured one (which can't be deleted?)

To add sites:
Help --> Software Updates --> Find and Install from the menu
Search for new features to install (on the resulting dialog)

Repeat for each site to add:
"New Remote Site" button
Enter name and URL

Sites to Add (choose the url based on your version of Eclipse):
Name: EMFT Update Manager Site
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/updates/site.xml (Releases)
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/updates/site-interim.xml (I, M and S Builds)

Name: EMF (Query, Validation, Transaction) Update Manager Site
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emf/updates/site.xml (Releases)
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emf/updates/site-interim.xml (I, M and S Builds)

Name: MDT (EODM, OCL) Update Manager Site
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/updates/site.xml (Releases)
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/updates/site-interim.xml (I, M and S Builds)

Name: M2T (JET, JET Editor) Update Manager Site
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/m2t/updates/site.xml (Releases)
URL: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/m2t/updates/site-interim.xml (I, M and S Builds)

Select those, ignore the original and all should be well in the world.

Almost forgot, if using the Spring Plugin, install the AspectJ one first. Let Eclipse restart and then add the Spring IDE plugin.


Enjoy
