KNIME 2.5 on Eclipse 3.7 (yet?)

Dear Knime Development Team,

first off, I was really thrilled when I stumbled upon your software when searching for scientific workflow management systems. Me and my colleagues use Eclipse daily. When I tried to install KNIME from on Eclipse 3.7, I got the following error:

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.

  Software being installed: KNIME Core (
  Software currently installed: Eclipse SDK 3.7.2.M20120208-0800 (org.eclipse.sdk.ide 3.7.2.M20120208-0800)
  Only one of the following can be installed at once:
    ECF Filetransfer API 4.0.0.v20100529-0735 (org.eclipse.ecf.filetransfer 4.0.0.v20100529-0735)
    ECF Filetransfer API 5.0.0.v20110531-2218 (org.eclipse.ecf.filetransfer 5.0.0.v20110531-2218)
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Equinox p2 Core Function 1.0.1.v20110906-1605-8290FZ9FVKHVRKtmx3fpNuo02129 ( 1.0.1.v20110906-1605-8290FZ9FVKHVRKtmx3fpNuo02129)
    To: org.eclipse.ecf.filetransfer [5.0.0.v20110531-2218]

I searched a bit and found this thread wherein the poster tried to install KNIME 2.4 to an existing Eclipse installation. Also, I found Since there have not been any replies, I wondered if the compatibility situation changed in the meanwhile.

Now my actual question: Is there a way that I can resolve this issue myself? Could you give me hints on where to start? Does it even work with the KNIME 2.5 using a different approach?

Thank you very much and Best Regards,

Michael Bach

Eclipse 3.7 is not supported yet. The switch also not on our high priority list because it doesn't offer any advantages for KNIME but instead comes with a lot of new problems. E.g.  dependency problems problems such as you discovered.

Thanks for your notice! Then I will definitely check out KNIME with Eclipse 3.6...

Best Regards,
