How to Install

Start with a compatible version of Eclipse (available from https://eclipse.org/downloads/packages). Since Groovy-Eclipse relies on the Eclipse Java Development Tools (JDT), almost any flavor of Eclipse that includes the JDT will be compatible. This includes the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers, Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers, etc. Flavors such as Eclipse IDE for C/C++ or PHP Developers are not compatible without the addition of the JDT feature.

The install directory must be writable by the current user. Groovy-Eclipse cannot be installed into a shared install. This includes protected directories on windows like C:\Program Files\. For more information Eclipse Bug 395516.

Once you have a compatible Eclipse installed, then Drag to your running Eclipse* workspace. *Requires Eclipse Marketplace Client or follow these steps:

  1. Go to Help > Install New Software...
  2. Click on Add...
  3. Paste the update site URL appropriate for your version of Eclipse and click Add
  4. Select the new entry in the Work with list of update sites
  5. Expand Main Package and select the Eclipse Groovy Development Tools feature
  6. Click Next and follow the remaining prompts
