KNIME SDK: Own project nodes not loaded anymore when running As Knime

I wanted to do some maintenance for my not so well maintained… personal knime nodes.

The issue I no face is that when Running (or debugging) As Knime analytics platform my own nodes are not included anymore and hence I get an Status error “Node xyz not available” and I can’t even test them.

Also other aspect of the SDK seem to be defect:

I’m using the plugin.>feature->update site paradigm. However While I can build a new version it always adds as “default” under “Uncategorized” (content.xml):

<unit id='Default' version=''>
  <properties size='3'>
    <property name='' value='Uncategorized'/>
    <property name='org.eclipse.equinox.p2.description' value='Default category for otherwise uncategorized features'/>
    <property name='org.eclipse.equinox.p2.type.category' value='true'/>

Which might actually be the cause that it isn’t loaded? However I don’t know how to fix this. There are no error messages.

Any input?

Hi @beginner,

are you able to share the code of your nodes with us? Then we can take a look at it and identify the issue.
It seems to me like there is something wrong with your plugin definition.


Hi Gabriel,

after installing newest eclipse and setting up knime sdk again, the issue persisted but it turned out, that it simply was my fault as at some point I must have accidentally deleted the category in the update site the feature was listed under. Hence “Uncategorized”. Adding back the category solved the issue. (Yeah i should probably also put that under source control albeit there isn’t really much in that project except site.xml)
