How to install plugin?

I downloaded the xdoclet2 plugin and opcied it to my intellij istall folder.  When I open up IntelliJ, I don't see it in the list of plugins.
How can I get IntelliJ to recognize that he plugin is there so I can activate it?

You need to place the plugin jar file (or the plugin directory) into /.IntelliJIdea90/config/plugins directory and restart IDEA.

Hi there -

Yep, OK.. so I put it in:
C:\program files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.3\plugins

Restarted IntelliJ, and still, it doesn't appear.

Should it be recognizing it automatically?
Thanks,
John

The 'plugins' folder under IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.3 directory is used only for build-in plugins. In order to install a third-party plugin you need to copy
it to C:\Documents and Settings\username\.IntelliJIdea90\config\plugins directory.

Hi Nikolay:

I have the plugin at: C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\config\plugins\xdoclet-plugins-dist-1.0.4\lib
I have also tried:
C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\config\plugins\xdoclet-plugins-dist-1.0.4\
and
C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\config\plugins\

but none of them get IntelliJ to recognize them..

What else can I do?

John

Did you change idea.plugins.path in /bin/idea.properties file? Does the plugin jar contain META-INF/plugin.xml file? Are there any
exceptions in C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\system\log\idea.log file?

Hi Nikolay:

There's a lib folder that contains a ton of .jar files such as:
xdoclet-plugin-plugin-1.0.4.jar
xdoclet-plugin-spring-1.0.4.jar
etc...

This is the xdoclet plugin, and it's currently in C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\config\plugins\xdoclet-plugins-dist-1.0.4\lib

There is a file called availables.xml in This is the xdoclet plugin, and it's currently in C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\config\plugins\

There is no META-INF/plugin.xml file.

I have not changed anything in /bin/idea.properties:
# path to user installed plugins folder. Make sure you're using forward slashes
idea.plugins.path=${user.home}/.IntelliJIdea90/config/plugins

Are there any exceptions in C:\Documents and Settings\john\.IntelliJIdea90\system\log\idea.log file when you start IDEA?

No.... none.

I wonder if anyone has installed the xdoclet plugin, or if there is anything else I can try...
