Chapter 1. Installing Developer Studio in Eclipse

Developer Studio for Eclipse packages the Developer Studio plug-ins for your existing Eclipse instance. You can either install Developer Studio from the Eclipse Marketplace when you are online or use the Update Site Zip to install it when you are offline.

1.1. Installing Developer Studio in Eclipse when online

Developer Studio is available to install from Eclipse Marketplace when you are online.

Important

If anytime before or during the installation, you are asked about selecting additional features to install, you may select Fuse Tooling to use the Fuse tooling features after the installation is complete.

Procedure

To install Developer Studio BYOE from Eclipse Marketplace, take the following steps:

  1. Start Eclipse SimRel 2018-09 GA.
  2. Click Help > Eclipse Marketplace, locate Red Hat Developer Studio 12.9 GA, and click Install.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process.

During the installation process, if you receive warnings about installing unsigned content, review the details of the content and if satisfied, click OK to continue with the installation.

After the installation is complete, you are prompted to restart Eclipse. Click Yes to restart immediately and No if you need to save any unsaved changes to open projects. Note that the IDE changes do not take effect until Eclipse is restarted.
