[protege-discussion] problem loading my tab widget plugin

This looks right (modulo a minor but unhelpful point - you don't need  
the .project and the .classpath in the jar file).  But let me try to  
clarify with some questions.  First of all I assume that you are  
installing into the plugins directory of a Protege installation?  The  
installation directory should look something like

     Protege Installation Directory
         protege.jar and other standard protege files.

             cmap (or whatever the path you choose for your plugin)
                 your jar file and the file.

                 owl plugin files.

Also how are you running Protege?  Double clicking on the Protege  
directory?  Are you trying to start it from an IDE?  Can you see a  
line of the form

         CONFIG: Loaded ...path... - ConceptMap

in the console when Protege loads?  Are there any other obvious  
differences between the way things are set up on the two platforms?   
Do both machines have the right version of Java?  Are there any  
errors on the console?  When you say "I can't see  my plugin" what  
does this mean?  Is it missing from the Projects->Configure dialog?

Sorry for the questions.  You approach sounds right but if I was  
looking over your shoulder I would probably know what the problem is.
