The Platform SDK download links for Eclipse 4.2 and 3.8 are missing from their
download pages. The page templates have a broken link for the Platform SDK.

http: //download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops4/R-4.2-201206081400/
http: //download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.8-201206081200/

The SDKs for Eclipse, RCP, JDT, and PDE are available. The last available
Platform SDK was for 4.2/3.8M6. Where did it go? Can I get the Platform SDK distribution from another source?

The platform runtime binary (a running Resource perspective with no JDT or PDE) is still there, but the Platform SDK (runtime and source) was removed.

See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=374436#c8

@Paul, Thanks for clarifying the situation. Would you be able to elaborate on obtaining the "old Platform SDK" from the p2 repository mentioned by John Arthorne in Bug 374436 Comment 8? I am unclear on the steps I need to perform to install the Platform SDK into the Platform Runtime Binary.

Using p2 director app is one way to get "platform sdk".

http://help.eclipse.org/juno/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/guide/p2_director.html

Specifically, after installing platform runtime, you'd execute something like

./eclipse \
    -nosplash \
    -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
    -repository http://download.eclipse.org/releases/juno/ \
    -installIU org.eclipse.platform.sdk

Once you have a binary platform installed or deployed, you can use the included director:

eclipse/eclipse \
-application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
-noSplash \
-repository \
http://www.eclipse.org/external/eclipse/updates/3.8 \
-installIUs \
org.eclipse.platform.sdk 


The same IU can be used to mirror the platform SDK to a target platform.
