eclipse 3.2 with PHP IDE and the GEF

this is probably a long shot but is anyone using eclipse 3.2 with the PHP editor?

i have some web development to work on and i wanted to try the PHP plugin again and see if it has got any better than when i last tried it..

anyhow this is my problem.. GEF - the graphical editor framework (is required for PHP Ide) apparently doesnt have an auto update site for 3.2 so I downloaded a copy of it and installed it manually, but when i try to install the php ide eclipse is saying it cant find it. has anyone installed it successfully, and if so, how?

thanks for all the help everybody!

i found a solution to the problem (problem or my own mistakes, but either way).. the eclipse web tools platform is a preconfigured version that has the newest gef installed and in turn allowed php to install..

here is the eclipse wtp

In case this helps anyone, here is a summary of my adventure with this exact same quest.

Suffice it to say, thank God for the Callisto update site! I found everything I needed there.

As I tried to install the PHP IDE, I kept getting told I need to have something else installed.

What I found VERY difficult was that these were given in the form of something resembling a URL (but not a URL), for example: org.eclipse.wst.common_core.feature or org.eclipse.ui.views, etc. These are not very descriptive so all I could do was a ton of Google searches. Does anyone know a reliable place these can be looked up?

Anyway I enumerate these, with a little bit of info about each, below.

1) org.eclipse.emf
Eclipse Modelling Framework
Update site:
Also available at Callisto

2) org.eclipse.gef
Graphical Editing Framework
GEF requires the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) and the "views"
plug-in (org.eclipse.ui.views), which provides property sheet support.
Update site:
Also available at Callisto

3) org.eclipse.jem
Visual Editor (Now how on earth is anyone supposed to know that "jem" means Visual Editor )
Update site:
Also available at Callisto

4) org.eclipse.xsd
XML Schema Infoset Model
Also available at Callisto

5) org.eclipse.wst.common_core.feature
Web Standard Tools
Update site:
Also available at Callisto

I first did this installation on a Ubuntu machine and had to do all these searches. Next I did this on a Xandros machine but new better and used Callisto.

Life was 1000 times easier that way, so my advice is just use Callisto. I have noted those update sites above just because I went through the pain of finding them and in case anyone wants to know them for any reason.
