OK, first of all: I am new to everything: programming, java, and eclipse.
I downloaded the Java SKD, installed, then downloaded Eclipes Java IDE (for Win64, running in Win7-64x), "installed" it, and ran it.

First thing: tutorials. I did the "Hello World" Tutorial with no problems. Then I go to the Hello World SWT tutorial. There I found this:

The tutorial (cheat sheet) tells me to Import the SWT project. To do that, I should open the import wizard (File>Import...) and there pick Plug-in Development>Plug-ins and Fragments.

Well: there is not such an option. I tried the "Click to perform" option within the cheat sheet, but only get a "The command did not complete successfully", with this in its details:

The command did not complete successfully.
unknown wizard: org.eclipse.pde.ui.PluginImportWizard

It seems to me weird since I am just following the included tutorial, but I have not found a way to get around it (the file that I should import, org.eclipse.swt.{platform}.{os}.{arch} (for example: org.eclipse.swt.win32.win32.x86 for win32) is in a plug-in folder inside the eclipse folder (it's a .jar file). But I don't know what option I should use to successfully import it (otherwise, when I get to further steps in the tutorial, "Configure the Java project", I don't have the proper options to pick).

Thanks in advance, and I am sorry if this question is really silly.

I think you need to download the Eclipse for RCP and RAP developers.

P.S.: Normally your example should work but the menu "Plug-in development" doesn't exist in the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers (which I believe is the one that you downloaded), so... it doesn't work.

Hello,

please take notice, that the SWT toolkit has to be downloaded before and that the newest IDE is a little bit different.

for more info:

Help -> Install New Software

Work with: --All Available Sites--

General Purpose Tools -> Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment

[Finish]

After installing this plug-in and restarting Eclipse, you will be able to proceed with the tutorial.

Thank You Richard!

Your solution solved my problem lickety split.

From the Main Menu->[Help]->"Install New Software". This launches the "Install" dialog. Click the down arrow on the "Work With" drop down box and choose "--All Available Sites--", which populates the list box right below. Find and check "Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment" - click [Next], accept the terms, etc. then [Finish]

Problem solve
