Under Construction Go somewhere else.jpg

How to install e(fx)clipse on a Mars 4.5.0 version of eclipse These instructions were written and the screen captures taken with a clean install of the Eclipse for RCP and RAP Developers 64 bit package available here (http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-rcp-and-rap-developers/marsr). The Operating system used was Windows 7 SP1. These steps do not include the install of eclipse 4.5.0 (Mars).

  3. Select the "--All Available Sites --" option from the "Work with:" drop down list.
  4. Uncheck the "Group items by category" check box in the bottom details section.
  5. Check only the "e(fx)clipse - IDE" Name option. All the other options starting with "e(fx)clipse - IDE" are subsets of the full e(fx)clipse IDE. The "e(fx)clipse - Minimal JavaFX OSGi integration bundles" option is out of scope for these instructions.

  5. Press the "Add..." button.
  6. Select Software Site. Then press the "Next >" button.
  7. Enter http://download.eclipse.org/efxclipse/runtime-released/2.0.0/site as the site. Press the enter key while in the "Work with:" text box.
  8. Expand "FX Target" and check "Target Platform for Eclipse"
  9. Uncheck "Include required software" check box.
