Hi,

I am wondering what is the difference between:

Eclipse -> Help -> Marketplace
and:

Eclipse -> Help -> "Install new software" ?

using both option one could install the same software/plug-ins/tools, right ?

best regards,
Z.

No, not really. The Marketplace Wizard is a interface for several websites that provide different plugins. These websites are maintained in general by the provider of this site.

The "install new software" Wizard points to several URLs which provide p2 repositories to install any software you like.

Main difference
Marketplace: You can install the bundles (and only the bundles) hosted by the selected marketplace
Install new software: Add a URL and you can install all bundles the URLs repository provides.

Well, there are different locations Smile

Documentation about installing new software can be found at http://help.eclipse.org/kepler/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/tasks-129.htm

A good source of goals and features of the Eclipse Marketplace is probably the project proposal that can be found at http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/mpc/

Thanks Tom,

as you understend much better Eclipse project, could you please explain how it is possible that on official Eclipse dokumentation site:
http://help.eclipse.org/kepler/index.jsp

there is no match on one of the menu items such as "Eclipse Marketplace" ?
To me as newcomers to Eclipse this looks as not "very happy" documented project.

regards,
Z.
