I suspect that Grid created this zip from his own environment, since I'm
not aware of any regularly produced zips in this area.
The requirement you mention about using SOA-P tooling only from JBT has
been the subject of debate before, with one serious limiting factor
being the JBT build. As Nick B moves the JBT to a modular system, then I
think these sorts of subsets become possible. Ultimately, it would be

A lot of times we don't want the entire JBoss Tools, but just the plugins that we

On the surface (just scanning the thread below):
Jeff: Having the plug-in and feature in the right directories is the
first step, but that does not necessarily mean that the Eclipse platform
will load them (dependencies could be missing). If you don't see a
"BPMN" category under Export, then it is likely due to missing
dependencies. I would suggest the latest Eclipse Gaynmede J2EE package
and latest JBT CR1 build to ensure everything is in place.
