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.
