JDT/Eclipse Java 7 Support (BETA)

Java 7 is not publicly released yet and hence the Eclipse Java 7 support could not be shipped with 3.7 or 4.1. Those who want to use it in 3.7 can do it using the install instructions below. A feature patch for 4.1 will follow soon.

  1. Help > Install New Software...
  2. enter http://build.eclipse.org/eclipse/java7patch/ into the 'Work with' field
  3. press 'Enter'
  4. select category 'Eclipse Java 7 Support (BETA)'
  5. for faster install, deselect 'Contact all updates sites during install to find required software'
  6. click 'Next'
  7. click 'Next'
  8. accept the license
  9. click 'Finish'
  10. restart Eclipse when asked

Note: This is an implementation of an early-draft specification developed under the Java Community Process (JCP) and is made available for testing and evaluation purposes only. The code is not compatible with any specification of the JCP.
