Eclipse, broken by design, thoughts...

If you are behind a web proxy and want to do an update, the default proxy settings (you know, the ones in preferences) don't work if you are doing an 'Eclipse update' or installing new software.

It seems like the main purpose to even use the network connection with Eclipse is to perform updates via http. But it doesn't work.

You need to add the http proxy settings in your Eclipse.ini.




Last tested with Helios.
