Hi,

I use Eclipse 4.2 Juno (Build id: I20120608-1400) and I would like to change one of its built in plugin, so I would like to checkout the source for that, but not find the right tag/version.

The file is: org.eclipse.ui.workbench_3.103.0.v20120530-1824.jar

I tried CVS repo that I found on eclipse site, but I cannot find this particular tag/version. I tried Git, where I could find the version, but not org.eclipse.ui.workbench itself.

Could anybody tell me please how to get a specific source version of Eclipse plugin in step by step? (I am newbie in this area)

Thank you!

The easiest is to install EGit plus the 'EGit Import Support'. Once
you've done that you can use File > Import... > Plug-ins and Fragments.
Choose to import as projects from a repository and then choose your
plug-ins. This will automatically check out the stuff for you.
