    Hi, i’m trying to install OWL-S IDE in Eclipse Helios Service Release 2, but i can’t…
    Can you tell me you eclipse version please?


    • Hi Michele, I had done this exercise a couple of years back, however I don’t remember exactly which version it was. I can assure you that it wasn’t Helios. I believe it was Europa or Ganymede. I hope this helps.
