Flex Builder 3.0.1 plug-in now works with Ganymede (Eclipse 3.4)

As you may have read on my blog last month, Flex Builder 3 (means 3.0.0) did not work with Ganymede without to have to apply a non official patch to it. It's now fixed with Flex Builder 3.0.1 that cames out monday.

For those who already are on Ganymede and previously have applied the patch, you just need to update your current Flex Builder installation using Eclipse>Help>Search for Flex Builder Updates.

Search for Flex Builder updates...

For the others, you have to uninstall Europa (Eclipse 3.3), install Ganymede (Eclipse 3.4), download the last Flex version from the official Flex download place and install it.

Note that the standalone Flex Builder 3.0.1 version is not built on Ganymede, but still on Europa.

    Please disregard my last email. Flex does not currently have support for
    eclipse 3.4. It only has support for eclipse 3.2. You will have to wait
    for a update from us which will not probably happen until our next

    So we do not currently support this but you can try the following;

    Installing Flex Builder 3 plugin with Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede)At the time
    of writing, the Adobe Flex Builder 3 plugin is not compatible with
    Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede). Flex Builder requires a version 3.3 of Eclipse
    during its installation and will report an error when you point it to a
    3.4 version. However you can force it to continue with the installation
    and then install a patch, available with thanks to Tekool.net. For the
    patch to work fully you need to cleanly restart Eclipse (as mentioned in
    the comments on the linked post) :

    eclipse -clean (on windows, or)
    ./eclipse -clean (on mac/linux)

    This is needed only once – after this the plugin works fine with the
    latest version of Eclipse.
