Initially i had eclipse 3.8 and i have installed all the plugins and packages mentioned in this link

I couldnt properly debug as per the guidance available then i uninstalled the eclipse 3.8 and downloaded eclipse IDE for java developers(eclipse kepler) and followed the same step as mentioned in the above link. I couldnt install the packages and plugins mentioned in that link with an error message org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core.provisionexception, and after surfing in net i understood it may probably because all those plugins and packages where already installed in the previous eclipse 3.8 and it is bounded to it.

Please guide me how to installed the plugins and packages mentioned in above link into eclipse kepler.


Shall i skip installing the plugins and packages and continue importing the maven project.

After a long try i was able to download the plugins and integrations. I tried this Window->preferences->General->Network connections and checked whether "Direct" is chosen for Active providers.

Impact if those plugins and integrations are not installed: The odl project imported will show broken state with red cross over its subprojects.

Hi Chandralekha, eclipse stores internal data in home folder and in workspace. So if the reason sticks in those, then eclipse-3.8 and 4.3 use different folder in home. But if you forced them to share workspace, then this could be the reason. If so, please try to create new workspace for kepler and install plugins then.

In case it still fails, you can have a look into eclipse log, which is in workspace/.metadada/.log. Also you can check web access using internal eclipse web browser to see, if there is connectivity issue (window>show view>other.. ).

There is also way to setup maven project in eclipse without any plugins:

Good luck.

Perhaps the new fully automated opendaylight-eclipse-setup based on Eclipse Installer (Oomph) from is of interest and useful to you. Watch this video to see what it is all about.
