This guide provides information on the Eclipse Marketplace Client and how to use it. The Eclipse Marketplace Client provides a means to find and install solutions from the Eclipse Marketplace and other solution catalogs.
To launch the Eclipse Marketplace Client select Help -> Eclipse Marketplace... from the menu, or click on Eclipse Marketplace Client on the Welcome page. The Eclipse Marketplace Client appears as follows:
Use the tabs at the top of the wizard to find popular solutions, recently added or updated solutions, installed solutions, or to search.
Searching by specifying the search query, market and category, then press Go:
Browse For More Solutions
The Eclipse Marketplace Client will provide links to browse for more solutions or Learn more. Clicking these links will cause the Eclipse Marketplace Client to close and the Marketplace to be opened in a web browser. Browse the marketplace website, and when ready press the Install button to reopen the Eclipse Marketplace Client.
You can also browse the Eclipse Marketplace website at http://marketplace.eclipse.org using your favorite browser. Just drag & drop the Install button of any item into your Eclipse to install it with the Marketplace Client.
Installing and Managing Solutions
Solutions will be displayed with corresponding buttons to install them or to change their installation details:
To install one or more solutions, press the Install button. Your first selection will automatically bring you to the confirmation page. From there, you can either go back to find more solutions to install, or confirm the selected features and press Next to proceed:
Solutions that are already installed show an Installed button and can be managed from the tab of the same name. Pressing the button will switch you to that tab. There you have different options to manage the installed features. The button will show you the default action, with more available in a drop-down depending on the solution's state:
Choosing the appropriate action, you can uninstall or update solutions, or change the installation of optional features:
Occasionally it's not possible to install solutions due to conflicting or unsatisfied dependencies. Resolve these errors by following the suggestions provided by the installer or by deselecting one or more features. Press Next to confirm the resolution. Installation may proceed once all errors have been resolved.
If necessary you may be prompted to review and agree to license agreements prior to installation:
If you agree, select I accept the terms of the license agreement.
Proceed with installation by pressing Finish. Installation involves downloading selected components and may take a few minutes or more to complete. You will be able to continue using Eclipse while you wait for downloading and installation to complete. When prompted, either Apply changes or Restart Eclipse to start using the newly installed solutions.
