I have the C++ Eclipse version installed and then added in the Java plugin. In the "Eclipse In Action" book there is mention to using JUnit, Log4J, and CVS. The Junit plugin is not in the plugin directory so I'm thinking that this did not come with the Java plugin as it does with the Eclipse Java version. So I'm probably going to uninstall the current Eclipse installation and then install the Java version and add in the C++ plugin so I will be able to use the utilities mentioned in the book. The Log4J is probably not part of the Java Eclipse package and should be obtained from Apache so that seems reasonable. But the CVS versioning system should be part of the Java Eclipse installation, I think. I would like to verify that these plugins do come with the Java Eclipse installation.

If C/C++ is still useful to you, then don't uninstall anything. You have
a couple of options. Maybe easiest, you can install Eclipse IDE for Java
Developers alongside your Eclipse CDT. But, you can also do what you've
begun to try to do and that's download, via Help -> Install New
Software, the plug-ins to get the Java stuff you want.

I think CVS support is waning. I'm sure it still works, but most have
moved on to Subversion, Git, Mercurial, etc. which are better by far.

Cheers!

I did try your suggestion about installing the JUNIT plugin but there was a message saying that it was already
installed! I can try to create a new JUNIT test case project via the new, test case selection menu, so I guess that
the plugin is in the installation somehow, verifying the installation message, but, when I check out the plugins
directory for the plugin itself I don't find any plugin there! The installation, and the new create JUNIT menu says I
can create a JUNIT test case, but the plugin directory shows nothing! There is a mention of adding in a classpath to
the JUNIT project when doing a JUNIT test, but that doesn't seem possible without being able to find the plugin in
the plugin directory!
