Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to install a third party plugin, like FindBugs, breaks
    the Local Help Updater. Installed packages are no longer
    considered installed: they're available for installation and
    won't show up in installed content list.
    
    Problem:
    
    1) Download the local help from the following location:
    http://www3.software.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/software/rationalsdp/docu
    mentation/updatesites/RAD8.0.4_updateSite.zip
    2) Extract it to a location on your file-system.
    3) Install Rational Application Developer 8.0.4.1 and start
    Local Help Updater
    4) Add the update site as a local site to the Local Help Updater
    5) Install both options for the documentation and notice they
    are listed in 'Installed Content'
    6) In the product, select menu Help ? Install New Software...
    - Select 'http://findbugs.cs.umd.edu/eclipse/' from the
    'Available Software Sites' and install the FindBugs Feature
