Managing Plugins

When you install or update a plugin using the Plugins Manager, the SDK places the plugin .jar file and documents in your user directory. See User Directories.

  1. Choose Tools > Plugins from the main menu to open the Plugins Manager.

  2. Click the Available Plugins tab to display plugins that are available but not installed.

  3. In the left pane, select the plugins you want to add and click Install.

  4. Complete the pages in the installer to download and install the plugin.

See Available Plugins, Downloaded, Installed Plugins and Plugin Settings.

Available Plugins

To access this tab, select Tools > Plugins to open the Plugins Manager, then select the Available Plugins tab. To check the update center and refresh the list of available plugins, click Reload Catalog.


To access this tab, select Tools > Plugins to open the Plugins Manager, then select the Downloaded tab. The left pane displays the manually downloaded plugins that you can install. The right pane displays a description of the selected plugin.Click Add Plugins to use the file browser to add any plugins that you downloaded to your local system. To install the plugin, select the Install checkbox for the plugin and click Install.

Installed Plugins

To access this tab, select Tools > Plugins to open the Plugins Manager, then select the Installed tab. The left pane displays a list of the installed plugins. The active column displays the state of the selected plugin.

active plugin
The plugin is installed and activated.
inactive plugin
The plugin is installed but deactivated.
restart plugin
The SDK needs to be restarted to fully deactivate the plugin.

When you select a plugin in the left pane, the description of the plugin is displayed in the right pane. You can activate and deactivate installed plugins in the right pane. A deactivated plugin is not loaded on SDK startup. If a plugin is deactivated, it still exists on your local system and you can reactivate the plugin without downloading it again.

An installed plugin can be active or inactive. If a listed plugin is inactive, you might need to install additional plugins to use the plugin.

If you want to completely remove a plugin from your local system, select the checkbox for the plugin in the left pane and then click Uninstall.

Plugin Settings

To access this tab, select Tools > Plugins to open the Plugins Manager, then select the Settings tab. This tab displays the default update center for the SDK - the Java ME SDK Toolbar Update Center.

By default the Plugins Manager checks for updates once per week, as determined by the Check Interval selection. You can select a different interval from the dropdown list.

Click the Add button to Add an update center URL.

Click the Proxy Settings button to edit the proxy settings to allow access to update centers.

Force install into shared directories determines whether the plugin is installed for an individual user or all users in the multiple user environment. If the box is unchecked (default) the plugin is only installed for the user. If it is checked, the installation is global, as described in Install a Plugin Globally.
