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\java.exe

Add the Scout SDK to your Eclipse installation

These instructions assume that you have Eclipse installed already.

To add Scout SDK to your existing Eclipse installation, you need to open eclipse and select Help|Install New Software...

Use in the dialog that shows up and expand Scout Application Development. When expanded, tick all checkboxes:

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.
