Older versions of Eclipse are available for download (we recommend that you use the latest version).

The download and installation instructions for all previous versions of Eclipse are similar to those of the current version.

Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede), Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo), and Eclipse 3.6 (Helios)

The JRE/JDK version requirements for Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede), Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo), and Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) are similar to those of the Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo).

Eclipse 3.3 (Europa)

  • Install a JDK or JRE -- minimum required level is 1.4.2 for basic functionality, but some plugins require 5.0/1.5; for example Mylyn and various WTP plugins. If you downloaded and installed the Java EE Developer package, you will definitely need Java 5 or JDK 1.5 to run it.
  • Get Eclipse:
  • If installing on Linux, you can look for a package from your distro maintainter/repositories, but this is not supported by eclipse.org. If you encounter problems with such a bundle, please contact your distro maintainer.
  • Otherwise, download an Eclipse SDK or Runtime Binary or a Europa Bundle, then unpack it and start it up.

Additional Plugins

To add other plugins, here's the general process.

Help > Software Updates > Find and Install... > 
  (*) Search for new features > Next > 
  [x] Europa Discovery Site > 
  New Remote Site > add a new site >
  Finish
  • Expand the Europa Discovery site to resolve dependencies. Collapsed sites will not be searched.
  • Select the feature(s) you want to install.
  • Click the Select Required button to resolve missing dependencies.
  • Install. Restart. Enjoy.

Eclipse 3.2 (Callisto)

  • Get Eclipse:
  • If installing on Linux, you can look for a package from your distro maintainter/repositories, but this is not supported by eclipse.org. If you encounter problems with such a bundle, please contact your distro maintainer.
  • Otherwise, download an Eclipse SDK or Runtime Binary, then unpack it and start it up.

Additional Plugins

To add other plugins, here's the general process.

Help > Software Updates > Find and Install... > 
  (*) Search for new features > Next > 
  New Remote Site > add the new site: http://download.eclipse.org/callisto/releases/ >
  New Remote Site > add a new site >
  Finish
  • Select the projects &/or components you want to install.
  • Expand the Callisto Updates site to resolve dependencies. Collapsed sites will not be searched.
  • Select the feature(s) you want to install.
  • Click the Select Required button to resolve missing dependencies.
  • If it does not work, you will have to manually select dependencies.
  • If that doesn't work, start over, but add more update sites. Can't find a given dependency? Try here or here.
  • Install. Restart. Enjoy.
