Error with marketplace connectivity in Eclipse Helios

Hi All!
I am using eclipse helios and am trying to connect to the marketplace for installing plugins (seems to be the norm these days, especially for svn & maven plugins).
However, at my workplace clicking Eclipse marketplace... button gives the following error:
cannot resolve host marketplace.eclipse.org
I checked from browser, and this website is showing. Also, the proxy settings of eclipse are the same as system settings.
BTW, at my home, this error isn't happening.

Any ideas as to what may have gone wrong/which settings to be tweaked ?

Hi Sumit,

Could you please check if you are able to install software through update sites ?
If not then i would presume some problem with your network.

Cheers,
Saurav

Hi Saurav!
I am not able to use update sites for installations too.
However, Eclipse is able to make remote Database connectivity.
I checked that I had disabled the proxy server for http/https earlier.

If I try to use proxy, then upon fetching listing in update site/marketplace, Helios is crashing.
I am using Helios SR1.

Hi Sumit,

I am sure your database is out of the network and you have set all the proxy settings through the Eclipse preference page.

If everything above is taken care and still you are having the blues then i suggest the following.

(a) Try the same connection from outside your network which does not have any proxy settings.
(b) Check in a fresh instance and in a fresh workspace of eclipse.

cheers,
Saurav

Thanks for your help saurav.
I tried the same with Helios SR2, and had same results.
The crash dump was :


Since I am using Windows server 2000 at office, it might be platform specific issue.
And yes, at my home, Helios runs fine in Ubuntu 10.10

  16

According to the dump, you are using Java 1.5.0 update 16.

Can you upgrade that to a newer version? The latest version is 1.6.0 update 24. If you require Java 5, then the latest update is JDK 1.5.0 update 22.

No, even after updating the JVM, the problem persists.


I had forgotten to include the next couple of lines. I appears an OS specific problem to me.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
