+
== Prerequisites  ==
+
 
+
Before you start the '''Stardust - Eclipse Process Manager''' installation you need to download and unpack [http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-and-report-developers/heliossr2 Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers] to a location of your choice.
+
 
+
If you need more information on eclipse installation please continue [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Stardust/Knowledge_Base/Getting_Started/Installation#Eclipse_and_Subclipse_Installation here].
+
 
+
== Installation Alternatives  ==
+
 
+
Installation of Stardust on [http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-and-report-developers/heliossr2 Eclipse Helios] is performed by installing the corresponding Stardust Features and their required dependencies. These Eclipse Features include the
+
 
+
* Process Modeller,
+
* the Rapid Application Development (RAD) environment and the
+
* Report Designer Extension.
+
 
+
You have several options to add the '''Stardust - Eclipse Process Manager''' Features and their dependencies to your Eclipse environment:
+
 
+
*'''Online Eclipse update site''' - This is a good choice if you:<br>- don't know what to choose<br>- have a reliable, fast internet connection<br>- only want to install on a single PC / environment<br>- want to check for updates frequently and intend to update to the latest and greatest version frequently<br>
+
*'''Local Eclipse update site''' - This is a good choice if you:<br>- have a not so fast and reliable internet connection<br>- have an internet connection with high latency / response times<br>- want to install on multiple PCs / environments<br>- are going to check for updates less frequently or not via the built-in update mechanism<br>- may not always upgrade to the latest patch release<br>
+
*'''Install features as drop-ins''' - This is a good choice if you:<br>- know what you are doing<br>- are sure that you have the right Eclipse version with all required dependencies installed<br>- are familiar enough with the eclipse plug-in mechanism and know how to install missing dependencies if needed<br>- rather perform some steps in the file system than walk through the dialogs of the (local) Eclipse update site installation<br>- want to separate the new features from you Eclipse installation on file system level<br>- want to automate the installation for multiple environments
+

== Stardust - Eclipse Process Manager&nbsp;Feature Installation  ==
+
 
+
=== Online Eclipse Update Site  ===
+
 
+
After the installation of Eclipse and the Subclipse plug-ins Stardust can be installed. This section describes how to do this using the online Eclipse update site.<br>(See [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Stardust/Knowledge_Base/Getting_Started/Installation#Introduction introduction] for other options).<br>

#'''Select''' the checkbox '''Stardust - Eclipse Process Manager''' (see screenshot below)
+
#Select '''Next''' for the follow-up screens and accept the '''Eclipse License Agreement'''.

=== Local Eclipse Update Site (offline)  ===
+
 
+
For one of the reasons mentioned in the introduction you may prefer to download the complete update site so you can use it as a local Eclipse update and install the Stardust - Eclipse Process Manager features offline, possibly to multiple environments. The zipped complete Eclipse update site can be downloaded from the repository  <br>[http://download.eclipse.org/stardust/milestones/helios/stardust-offline-site-0.7.1.190-RC5.zip http://download.eclipse.org/stardust/milestones/helios/stardust-offline-site-0.7.1.190-RC5.zip].<br> Please note that the suffix of the archive name depends on the planned release version and a consecutively build number.

The installation of the right Eclipse version and of Subclipse as described in the section "Eclipse Installation" is still a pre-condition.<br>

=== Install Features as Drop-ins ===
+
 
+
Please refer to the Eclipse Platform Plug-in Developer Guide's section "[http://help.eclipse.org/helios/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.isv%2Freference%2Fmisc%2Fp2_dropins_format.html The drop-ins folder and supported file layouts]".<br>
+
 
+
Remember start Eclipse using the parameter -clean after making modifications to the drop-ins folder.
+
 
+
== Eclipse Installation  ==
+
 
+
==== The right Eclipse Version<br> ====
+
 
+
The Stardust - Eclipse Process Manager is based on the [http://www.eclipse.org Eclipse Platform] and consists of the combination of the basic Eclipse platform and a number of plug-ins. Currently only Eclipse Helios Service Release 2 (Eclipse 3.6 SR2, build 20110218-0911) is supported. Please make sure to download the appropriate version for your operating system. It’s strongly recommended to download the bundle '''Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers''' [http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-and-report-developers/heliossr2 here] to avoid having to install additional missing plug-ins at a later point.<br>
+
 
+
After downloading, install Eclipse by extracting it into a target folder of your choice. Start the Eclipse application. When the Eclipse IDE opens for the first time you are presented with a ''Welcome'' screen, which you may close.
