Maps don't show in tree

Just installed CocoBase for evaluation. Using as an Eclipse plugin to WSAD V5. Launching WSAD via the bat file does not work (hangs) so am launching WSAD as normal. I specified an XML repository as below.

Am able to successfully start the Admin console and connect to my DB2 database. Can do a create map for table and get a message that the generation was successful. However, when I look at the list of Maps in the tree, there are no maps.

What am I missing?

If you're having trouble with CocoBase not showing up in the WSAD environment, engineering says you have to close all perspectives then reload the Java perspective.

1) Close all perspectives by right-clicking the perspective icons in the upper portion of the left hand icon bar and selecting close all from the pop-up menu.

2) Re-open the perspective by selecting (from the main menu) Window->Open Perspective->Java

Apparently WSAD caches the settings of the perspectives.

That should fix the issue when launching with the wsad bat file.

As for the maps not being there, if you're using an XML repository approach and have edited your, make sure you've re-run your ide integration script because this configuration information is copied into the IDE using the integration. As a result any changes to the demos\resources for CocoAdmin or your database must be reconciled with the IDE.

Does that make sense?

>>make sure you've re-run your ide integration script

I did this multiple times, restarted WSAD each time. I checked the jars to be sure the correct properties files were there. Everything looks OK with that. The I attached to the original post was from the C:\Program Files\IBM\WSAD5\eclipse\plugins\com.thought.cocobase\cocobase.jar file.

>>If you're having trouble with CocoBase not showing up in the WSAD environment

This is not the problem. It shows up fine when I run C:\Program Files\IBM\WSAD5\wsappdev.exe, but this is not what the instructions say to do.

Maybe I should send a note to tech support because I had to make some changes to the build.xml file that were not strictly as documented. Then I added the db2 zips to build.xml and plugincore.xml because I got tired of doing all that manually. There may be a problem. Here is a copy of my build.xml:
This is the Ant script for bulding/installing CocoBase into Eclipse.

installcore - installs CocoBase support libraries into Eclipse
