How to install Flash Builder 4.6 plugin for Eclipse 4 (Juno)

Community Beginner ,
Jun 28, 2012 Jun 28, 2012

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

I just downloaded Juno (Eclipse 4.2 32bit) and wanted to install my FB 4.6 plugin, but the installer says "Adobe Flash Builder requires Eclipse 3.6 or later" - which is bunk, as Juno is the latest and version 4.

Sounds like a bug w/ the installer not recognizing any Eclipse versions above 3.X.

How do I work around this?

Thanks,

B

Install on Eclipse 3.7 then copy the dropins folder to 4.2 installation.

The first Eclipse Start was slow and on the first switch to Flash Perspective I received NullPtr. But on the next start everything was ok.

I can debug, build GUI, create new Flash Projects... Maybe some things will not work... But I don't think I will need them.

This workaround worked for me just as explained - got the NPE, then 2nd launch seemed fine. Will require more testing to be sure that everything works as expected.

One note - I wasn't able to install the plug-in to v3.8 either, didn't try 3.7, just installed 3.6 and that worked.

I also just copied the fb-4_6-plugin-encoded.link file from the dropins folder, not the whole folder itself, but that probably makes no difference.

Unfortunately no workaround I have tried so far can get Flash Builder 4.6 working with Juno on OSX Lion / Mountain Lion. It works fine under Windows 7 with the above workarounds, but refuses to work under OSX.

Eclipse crashes right after picking the workspace location, throwing the following message ( if I remove the .link to Flash Builder from dropins, Eclipse functions correctly again... so it's definitely something with the plug-in ; PS: the eclipse.ini is correctly updated 😞

Invalid memory access of location 0x10 eip=0x983c66bc

Bus error: 10

Totally wonderful... Also, seemingly Flash Builder plug-in installs without a problem on Helios but it doesn't actually seem to load the plug-in at start-up. Can't create new projects / files related to Flash Builder. Adobe... any chances you're going to move a muscle to fix these issue?

No one from Adobe interested in looking into this issue? YOUR SOFTWARE DOESN'T WORK when installed as a plug-in on Mac OS X! What on Earth is this? If I install in for Helios, it doesn't recognize the plug-in at all ( can not create any Flash / Flex / Air / ActionScript related projects or anything similar ).

Provide answers, workarounds, whatever! Just make it work already on Mac OS X!

PS: Just to avoid useless questions: It was not working on Lion either and nor is it working on Mountain Lion. The following is the stack I get if I run Eclipse Juno with -consoleLog argument ( and this after dropping the Flash Builder 4.6 link into the "dropins" folder of Juno 😞

I can get Flash Builder working under Windows buy installing it on an older version of Eclipse and then copying the link to the "dropins" folder in Juno, but the same thing doesn't work under OS X ( it only crashes the IDE shortly after startup - never goes beyond the initialization / splash screen ).

The above was done on a completely new Juno "install".

FYI: I installed eclipse Eclipse 4.3 Kepler and copied the fb-4_6-plugin-encoded.link to the new dropins folder. I can confirm that debugging, building gui, compiling, editing etc of Flash Builder 4.6 works! Now I saw the NullPtr after switching to "Flash Debug" Perspective but again only the first time.

Same issue here. The workaround seems like a royal pain, and it could be weeks or months until one discovers what didn't work by following it.

It would be nice to hear from Adobe on this.

Flash Builder 4.6 supports installation as a plugin to an existing Eclipse instance. To do so:

    • Complete the installation process as described above.

    • Navigate to the installed Flash Builder installation location and open the utilities folder.

    • Run the executable Adobe Flash Builder 4.6 Plug-in Utility.exe.

    • Select the language and click on OK.

    • Select the Flash Builder installation location if prompted.

    • Select the Eclipse folder into which you want Flash Builder 4.6 to be plugged into and click Next. (Note: Your copy of Eclipse must be version 3.6/3.6.1/3.6.2/3.7, 32-bit and must contain a folder named “dropins”)

    • Review the pre-Installation summary and click on Install

This entire thread is based on the premise that doing the above doesn't work Ken, which it doesn't. You have to do Toshe-De's workaround. Your own post indicates the problem - Eclipse must be version 3.6, 3.7 etc., Juno is v4, so your reply is basically how to repro the problem, not a solution, but it's good to have the repro steps too.

Actually, the reason I added the reference to the requirements for plugin usage is simply to point out that the instructions given by Adobe DO indeed work as advertised, noting the following:

1) Software, by its nature, has compatability requirements, and in this case Eclipse must be 3.6 to 3.7.  The original question stated that "it must be a bug with the installer", where that simply isn't the case.  The installer works well within the stated requirements.  The original poster is assuming that the plugin MUST work with post 3.7 Eclipse verions, which it clearly does not.

2) Toshe-de did indeed suggest a "workaround" to the Adobe requirements, and as noted, there may be risks to this down the road.  This is just the way it is, however, when one wants to exceed a vendor's requirements or limitations.  It is quite obvious to all that Eclipse is moving on, while Flashbuilder is not.  Apparently, Adobe is not committed to continuing FB development, and so in the mean time...life goes on.

@Mac users: I tried some tricks but also didn't succeed to run Flash Builder 4.6 on my OS X Partition on my Macbook. But the new Flash Builder will support 4.2 so if you have no problems using beta software you can download it from here:

http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashbuilder4-7/

Edit: There is also a 64-bit version for Windows users.

Well for me it worked fine for Eclipse Juno...I neither needed to copy any folder (like dropins etc.). The difference is that I used Adobe Flex Builder 4.7 premium installation and the plugin is built-in. Perhaps they had fixed it.

What I did?

  1. Install Adobe Flex Builder 4.7 premium
  2. Run the plugin utility exe placed at: {installation directory like C or D}:\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7\utilities\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7 Plug-in Utility.exe
  3. Provide Flex and eclipse installatin directories. Done with the flex perspective installation.

Hope it helps.

Just an update for the yesterday's Eclipse 4.4 Luna:

Flash Builder 4.6 (Windows) works with Luna out of the box, without even throwing NullPtr.

One have to copy the "dropins/fb-4_6-plugin-encoded.link" from the old eclipse installation.

Recently I found another way while inspecting the installer:

The plugin installer only checks if the selected eclipse root folder contains the file ".eclipseproduct".

If one makes a backup of the file and replaces the content with the following lines, the plugin installer works:

----

name=Eclipse Platform

id=org.eclipse.platform

version=3.7.0

----

So one don't need to download the old indigo builds just to copy the link file.

Note: While the file "fb-4_6-plugin-encoded.link" just points to the Flash Builder install dir, on a fresh FB installation it is not enough to just manually create this file.

The plugin installer must succeed once, as it also modifies the FB installation. Otherwise eclipse throws strange exceptions.

Hope that saves you some hours, as FB 4.6 is the last version with design view, that works with the "flex-sdk-description.xml" tricks even on newer Apache Flex SDKs.

I saw this and decided to try getting Luna to work with FB 4.6 on a Mac OS X 10.9.3.

I couldn't use the ".eclipseproduct" trick, so I downloaded a 32bit Indigo Eclipse and installed the Flash Builder 4.6 plugin to that. Then I copied the "fb-4_6-plugin-encoded.link" to a 32bit Luna Eclipse.

I tried opening an MXML file from a project I imported into a new workspace, but only a partial window of it came up and then got errors like "An internal error occurred during: "Updating indexes". org/eclipse/core/runtime/internal/adaptor/BasicLocation". Once I did an "Check for Updates" and upgraded everything (I believe it was M2E that was giving that error) I then got an error complained about needing JVM 1.7. I just commented out the "-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7" from the eclipse.ini and to my surprise, I had it working!
