Is there somewhere a working (old) gradle plugin for Eclipse helios (3.6)?


I’m forced to used Rational Application Developer 8.5. RAD 8.5 is based on Eclipse 3.6. I tried to install the gradle plugin but it gave me errors like (from error log view): Problems occurred when invoking code from plug-in: “org.eclipse.jface”. java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: INSTANCE at org.springsource.ide.eclipse.gradle.core.GradleCore.migrateLegacyPreferences( at org.springsource.ide.eclipse.gradle.core.GradleCore.getPreferences( … It seems that the current gradle eclipse plugin is only working for Eclipse 3.7 and above. Is there somewhere a downloadable plugin that is working with Eclipse 3.6. Maybe a gradle plugin version < 3.0?

Thanks in advance!


I’d try to install an STS version that works with Eclipse 3.6 (e.g. 2.9.2), and then install the Gradle plugin as an STS extension. As far as I know, you only need to install STS core, not the whole thing.

Alternatively, you could also ask in the STS forum.

Many thanks! Your solution was correct!
