Missing SDM prefs. section in Dev. Studio Final Release 2.0.3?

Hi Folks

I'm fairly new to the Eclipse/Java/J2EE side of SAP, so please be gentle 😊

I've installed the Final Release 2.0.3 (build 200402100302) of the Developer Studio, from the NetWeaver '04 testdrive DVD (from CeBIT). I installed it on Linux (using CrossOver) and on Windows 2000, as directed.

Everything seems to be fine, the wizards that I've tried seem to work, and so on. But on the Software Deployment Manager (SDM) section in Windows->Preferences seems to be missing. The "SAP J2EE Engine" section is there, but the SDM one is not. I know it should be there, as (a) I need to use it 😊 and (b) I've seen it there in the 6.30 Sneak Preview edition of the Developer Studio (2.0.0).

I've compared the list of files and directories with "sdm" in their names in the plugins directory of the Eclipse install area (2.0.3 vs 2.0.0), and they seem to be similar. I did spot that, in the 2.0.0 Dev. Studio's workspace, specifically in the .metadata/.plugins/ directory, there's a(n empty) "" directory. Which I was guessing was a switch-on for the feature. It was missing in the equivalent place in 2.0.3's workspace's .metadata/.plugins/ directory. So I added it, and restarted 2.0.3. No luck though. I'm guessing now that these dirs are just to store settings.

Where should I start looking to fix this? I've searched here on SDN, and in OSS, in vain.

Please help!

    The SDM preferences are no longer set explicitly in the Developer Studio. It is now enough to set the SAP J2EE Engine preferences and you shouldn't have any problems deploying via SDM.
