I am trying to install eclipse for multiple software platform development on a windows 7 x64 os. I use a number of programming languages but for this post lets say I want to set up eclipse to do java, c/c++, and python development.
Well right from the very start of the process I am totally befuddled!
First I do not see a base eclipse 4.2 juno installation! I only see packages like java dev, c/c++ dev, etc. There is on python in the downloads setion but I can get a plugin from pydev.org.
So I downloaded the java dev package, and the c/c++ package, and the python plugin but now I am stumped as to how I proceed?
Both the java and c/c++ package unzip to a eclipse folder. If I unzip them on top of each other and launch eclipse I see a welcome screen for either c/c++ OR jave development so how do I select one or the other?
The installation guide is in a word HORRIBLE! It implies there is a simple base juno installation then use help install new features to add packages like c/c++, java, python, etc. Which would make life a whole lot less confusing then the current situation!
I mean right from the start the instructions say install eclipse 4.2 (juno) from the download page and then sends you to a page where you can only download pre-setup packages!
Am I supposed to have a stand-alone eclipse folder for each "package"?
If so then how to I add a python development env?
Am I supposed to install one "package" like java dev, and then use the help add new software to add c/c++ and python? But then every time I start eclipse I get a welcome screen for one of the two packages and I don't see how I switch from java to c/c++ or to python???
Can you see where this is frustrating and maddening?
This is so needlessly confusing can someone please for the love of god explain the proper way to set up a c/c++, java, python development env?
