JRE 1.6 required
Eclipse for Scout Developers requires Java 6 or greater. If there is no Scout perspective you probably need to install an appropriate JDK.
If you have multiple JREs installed and want to be sure the right one is used start Eclipse Scout using the -vm command line argument and specifying the path to the executable. E.g.: eclipse -vm c:\path_to_the_jre\bin\javaw.exe.


Add the Scout SDK to your Eclipse installation

Select Scout Application Development drill down

Older Eclipse versions
If you are using an Eclipse version other than 3.8 or 4.2, you can untick the feature Scout RAP Target Feature. This gives your download a speed up.
If you are unsure which Eclipse version you are using, just keep all features ticked.


Click Next twice, accept the license and restart Eclipse as soon as the download has been completed.

Now you are ready to use the Scout Perspective.

Scout Updatesites

To download alternative scout versions see Scout/Updatesites.

Please note, that Scout is moving to git for later releases: http://git.eclipse.org/c/scout/
