this happens due to corrupted download of jars by eclipse.To fix the problem follow these steps:
1. download all jars manually from
you can use firefox plugin ‘download them all‘ to download all links in one click.
2. put them in /features/ and /plugins/ directory of eclipse
3.run plugin installation again as you would do normally.It won’t download the jars again and it will work without error.
