Installing PDT is relatively easy.

Install a JVM

Regardless of your operating system, you will need to install a Java virtual machine.

  • If using Windows, you may already have one installed, but upgrading won't hurt.
  • If using Linux, read this -- GCJ will NOT work.

Consider an IBM JDK or a Sun JDK. See below for minimum requirements. Note that if you are on a 64-bit platform and are using a 64-bit JRE, you need to use a 64-bit Eclipse build.
