Installing PDT is relatively easy.

Install a JVM

  • Regardless of your operating system, you will need to install some 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.

PDT All-In-One

The simplest way to install PDT is via an All-In-One bundle, if one exists for your platform (operating system, windowing system, architecture).

If there is no All-In-One for your platform, try one of the options below.

Eclipse 3.4 / Ganymede / PDT 1.1

This information is preliminary and subject to change. At time of writing, the latest stable Eclipse 3.4 was 3.4M7.
  • Get Eclipse:
unzip -d ~/eclipse/org.eclipse.php_feature-N20080512.zip_ org.eclipse.php_feature-N20080512.zip
  • Start the Install Manager.
Help > Software Updates... > Available Software
  Add Site... > add the Ganymede Milestone site: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/ganymede/
  Add Site... > Local > add the unpacked folder: ~/eclipse/org.eclipse.php_feature-N20080512.zip_
  Select the PDT Feature
  Install...
  • Install. Restart. Enjoy.

Eclipse 3.3 / Europa / PDT 1.0

  • 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 the Europa JEE Bundle, then unpack it and start it up.
Help > Software Updates > Find and Install... > 
  (*) Search for new features > Next > 
  [x] Europa Discovery Site > 
  New Remote Site > add the new site: http://download.eclipse.org/tools/pdt/updates/ >
  Finish
  • Expand the Europa Discovery site to resolve dependencies. Collapsed sites will not be searched.
  • Select the PDT feature(s) you want to install.
  • Click the Select Required button to resolve missing dependencies.
  • Install*. Restart. Enjoy.

Eclipse 3.2 / Callisto / PDT 0.7

  • 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.
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 the new site: http://download.eclipse.org/tools/pdt/updates/ >
  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 PDT 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.

Known Problems

  • You may find that your chosen mirror fails due to bug 203794. Until that bug is fixed, try another mirror, or try an FTP site instead of an HTTP site.
