On the installation page,, option #3 does not work.  Eclipse will not load the plugin.  I have 2 other dropins as jar files.  These work fine.

I downloaded two different versions of EclEmma's zip file (3.1.2 and 3.1.4).  One at a time, I renamed the zip file to jar and restarted Eclipse.  Eclipse did not pick up the plugin.

I used option #2 but pointed to EclEmma's zip file on my disk instead of the update site.  This works for EclEmma's 3.1.2 zip file.  I did not try with version 3.1.4.

Please fix the installation page instructions.

Note: I am using Eclipse 2021-06 (4.20.0) on Windows 10 version 21H1 build 19043.1202.

Hi Nathan,

what exact Eclipse package are you using? I’m asking because EclEmma is a since many years project and already included in most packages.
