    Question Eclipse for java

    Hi,

    Is their any thread for setting up latest eclipse (3.6) and sun-6-jdk in Lucid Lynx?
    Will be grateful if someone could direct me to it.
    Thanx in advance.

    Re: Eclipse for java

    1. Install Sun Java 6 JDK from partner repositories.
    2. Install Eclipse 3.5 Galileo from multiverse repositories.

    If you don't specifically need to use Helios I'd suggest you to stick with Galileo.

    To install Eclipse 3.6 Helios you'll have to download it from the Eclipse site. You can extract the downloaded archive to your home directory run it from there. You might have to manually set the path to the JDK inside Eclipse.

    Get back here if you have any further questions, and I'll try to answer them as soon as I'm on the forums.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the response.
    I'll stick with Galileo for now.
    It does what I want.
    Thanks again.

    Installing Helios 3.6 on Ubuntu 10.10 is rather simple. Download eclipse package from eclipse.org and extract it to a folder in your home directory.

    The tricky part is setting up java6-jdk from the sun partner repository but there is a easy to follow guide on http://www.webupd8.org/2010/09/how-t...va-plugin.html

    basically you have to enable the partner repository

    than install java6 jdk with

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
    and then if necessary update your java alternatives with:

    shows a list with available java alternatives
    Code:
    sudo update-java-alternatives -l
    sets the alternative
    Code:
    sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
    sudo update-alternatives --config java
