Installing ADT on Aptana Studio 3

Driven to computers at a young age, I wear my geek badge with pride! I have an active interest in all things 'tech', but absolutely love web development. Building something that gives you instant gratification and is visible to all attached to the net is a rush!

    I was fighting with Eclipse all the morning due to CMD+S issues and XML fields not being updated… Everything seems fine with Aptana, a big thank you for your explanations!

  3. You did a nice job explaining. I was scratching my head since this morning

    How I wish this worked for me. All I get is “Error while reading from repository:” or “This repository is not available”. I’m having similar problems with Eclipse, from the ADT bundle, which creates projects with no files at all, hence I’m trying Aptana. I have downloaded JDT separately, but being a newbie have no idea how to get them installed within the programs. Any suggestions would be most welcome. I’ve trawled Stackflow for days.

    • I’m sorry. I don’t know what to say. I’ve just installed Aptana on a new machine and can see the Eclipse Indigo repository just fine.

      What OS are you using? I saw something on Stack Overflow that shows this error on a Mac:

        Thanks for responding, Richard. I found the source of the problem. It’s the Australian Tax Office website, who insist we download a security key called AUSkey. This interferes with Java on the OS (I’m on a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.8.4. I think it is partly caused by Apple’s upgrade that removed Java from the OS.

        Anyway, apparently the only way to deal with it is to find the .jar file that causes the problem, remove it to somewhere safe so that it can be put back when needed to use the ATO website. I can’t find it, so I’ve uninstalled the Key, and will re-register online when I need to. What a Palaver!!!

        Especially because the only reason I needed to register online was because Apple requires (probably at the ATO’s insistence) that to sell an app in the app store you have to be registered for GST, which requires online ATO registration. I have one such app, so I had to register, and now 10% of my pitiful earnings go to the ATO, as well as the tax I have to pay on what’s left as taxable income. Sorry for the whinge. But if you ever hear of anyone else with this problem, if they’re in Australia, this is what’s up. I’m now using Eclipse with no problems, so don’t need Aptana. Although perhaps it has advantages I don’t know about?

        My app is called Being in Voice, it provides foundational voice training for speakers, singers et all, with quick and easy warmup programs. The iPhone/iPad version has been very well received by the voice coaching community, but Android users are agitating for their version, hence my attempts to learn how to make it for them.

        Thanks again for responding, I appreciate your taking the time.
