Re: NB8.1 and scala plugin.

NB8.1 and scala plugin.

I was wondering if is there any chance to get it running in NB8.1.

I have downloaded the package, installed and after restarting of NetBeans, system is unable to handle Maven projects. These projects which were open before restart are no longer in "Projects" pane, and opening any existing Maven project simply fails.

Error notification tells me:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/netbeans/modules/scala/maven/MavenProjectOpenedHook

Well, I've got the latest nbscala source from github, recompiled with success, but then installation within NB8.1 ends with the message:

"Some plugins require plugin JPDA Debugger Projects Integration to be installed ... version 201508041349" and so one.

Any ideas how can I get that plugin (and two more) ?

RE: scala plugin error resolution

rrucker: On Windows, you have to have sh.exe available in your path. If you have git installed, you can put GITDIR\bin (eg "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin") on your path so that it uses git's included version of sh.exe. Otherwise, you can use the sh.exe included in an msys/mingw or cygwin installation, or any other functioning sh.

Looking for scala plugin error resolution

java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "sh": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

** this error is from a first time, out of the box ScalaSBT project
NB 8.0.2
Plugin from the Tools>Plugins version 1.0 scala plugins

Sorry if this is the wrong venue :-(
I am a great admirer of NB and of Scala and of Mr. Caoyuan's plugins and appreciate the developer work...
