I am looking for information that will help me to combine multiple eclipse packages. Example: I have downloaded both the "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" and "Eclipse Modeling Tools" packages and would like to combine the two environments into one common resource. I have tried to identify the variety of features that exist in secondary packages in order to included them in the primary package using the "Help > Install New Software" menu option. In doing so, I am finding it difficult to accurately identify the needed components as there appears to be some disconnect, a least in title, between what exists in some packages and the downloads that are available.

I would appreciated advice on how to make this process as painless as possible.

To get any meaningful answer, I think you'll have to be specific about
which package you are starting from and which packages have the union of
functionality you seek.

Besides the two that I did mention, I also have separate installations for six others.

The eclipse.org packages include:

Eclipse Classic 4.2,
Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers,
Eclipse IDE for Java Developers,
Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers,
Eclipse Modeling Tools,
Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers, and
Eclipse for Testers

I also have a package that is provided by Stanford University that I would need to access with the same environment.
