Eclipse installation

Download Eclipse

Downloading the JEE version is recommended.

Select "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" Linux (32bit).

Configure Eclipse

  1. Increasing VM memory may improve performance by editing the eclipse.ini file and adjusting its -Xms -Xmx -XX:MaxPermSize options. 
  2. If you are getting OutOfMemory exceptions when building the search index  you may need to add the following JRE options to your run configuration:

     -Xmx2048m -XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m 
  3. Set the M2_REPO classpath variable so Eclipse knows where to find your local Maven repository.

    Window/Preferences -> Java/Build Path/Classpath Variable -> Click "New" button, then Name="M2_REPO", Path="~/.m2/repository"

Install plugins

For Eclipse 3.6 ("Helios") and later, you may also use the Eclipse Marketplace to find/install some of these plugins.
