  • Report Designer Extension.

    - only want to install on a single PC / environment
    - want to check for updates frequently and intend to update to the latest and greatest version frequently
  • Local Eclipse update site - This is a good choice if you:
    - have a not so fast and reliable internet connection
    - have an internet connection with high latency / response times
    - want to install on multiple PCs / environments
    - are going to check for updates less frequently or not via the built-in update mechanism

  • Install features as drop-ins - This is a good choice if you:
    - know what you are doing
    - are sure that you have the right Eclipse version with all required dependencies installed
    - are familiar enough with the eclipse plug-in mechanism and know how to install missing dependencies if needed
    - rather perform some steps in the file system than walk through the dialogs of the (local) Eclipse update site installation
    - want to separate the new features from you Eclipse installation on file system level
