NWDS not showing SAP specific Eclipse extensions


I downloaded NWDS "SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.1 SP00 PAT0000 Build id: 200807300233". I have Sun JDK 1.5_16 on my machine and proceeded by unpacking the file, running NWDS, choosing a new, clean, workspace, pointing to the update site, waiting for hundreds of updates to install... Everything went entirely smoothly.

However: When I started the tutorial "Getting Started with Composite Designer", it turns out there are no Composite Preferences (first step of the tutorial). There is also no "Composite Designer Perspective" or anything else SAP looking in Eclipse (Besides the SAP NWDS windows title and the SAP about dialog). I checked for the installed features and there are plenty of SAP features installed, including "Composite Tools", but it seems like none of them actually show in the Eclipse menus and selections.

Any pointers on how I can make them appear?

P.S.: After looking through Eclipse some more, I noticed the following:

In Product Configuration

SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio Java EE 8.10 is marked as failure. The specific sub-part that is failing is

SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio Facades 7.10 with the following error messages:

No plug-in: "" included at runtime.

No plug-in: "" included at runtime.
