eclipse-package misses org.eclipse.jdt.apt.core

Bug Description

Binary package hint: eclipse

Dear all,

evidently, the Eclipse package in Ubuntu's repositories has been stripped somewhat as compared to the upstream version. One of the essential packages that's missing now is org.eclipse.jdt.apt.core, without which the Hibernate Tools won't run -- see also

Thanks in advance,

thanks for your comment. As you can see in (1), there are other people affected by this bug as well, thus I thought it's appropriate to tag it as "Confirmed". As this issue has not been given any attention for the past seven months, I'd appreciate any suggestions to expressing this situation using the available tags.

I'm also affected by this. Not only does it break Hibernate's tools, but Eclipse itself throws null pointer exceptions in a vanilla install if you simply browse installed components because it expects this apt package to be there.

Adrian Kubala (adrian-ubuntu) wrote :

I can confirm this. I need APT support for webservices, and there is no easy way to add it to an existing Eclipse install since it is supposed to be bundled. If there is some reason to exclude it from the base package it should at least be provided in an extra package (like eclipse-jdt-apt or something).
