I am not really a java programmer, at least not yet - working on it. I did some java a while back, and I even used eclipse. However, I get pretty confused. Right now I am pretty confused.

I am working a PostgreSQL database project and have elected to use spySchema to (hopefully) create an ER diagram. This java app uses Graphviz to do the drawing. Graphviz is an eclipse plug-in. I am supposed to be able to install this by dragging the install button at

to my running Eclipse workspace. The best I've been able to do is to drag the png icon which opens up as - an icon picture. I'm spending an awful lot of time for something that seems like it should be so simple. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help in advance!

One problem is that even though Graphviz is an Eclipse plug-in, it's not from You probably want to check the Graphviz mailing lists and archives at .

Drag and drop from the Eclipse Marketplace web site requires that you have the Marketplace plug-in installed. It's included in most of the packages from, but you can also install it yourself if you're not using a preassembled package using either the download zip or Update Site listed on .
