I want to keep my Eclipse up to-date.|
It's Ok via the help menu-> Check for updates, but what if I wanted
What's the best practice to updates Eclipse manually (replacing folders : plugins, features, without loosing all the downloaded plugins)
I tried this: downloaded the Maintenance build and replaced the eclipse app

Do anybody have a solution for that?
