For the Mars release, we are introducing a new Eclipse installer. This is a new and more efficient way to install Eclipse. It is a proper installer, so no more zip files, with a self extracting download that will lead you through the installation experience. For those not into installers, we still have the packages and zip files available on our download pages.
Eclipse is hosted on many mirrors around the world. Please select the one closest to you and start to download the Installer
For Windows users, after the Eclipse Installer executable has finished downloading it should be available in your download directory. Start the Eclipse Installer executable. You may get a security warning to run this file. If the Eclipse Foundation is the Publisher, you are good to select Run.
For Mac and Linux users, you will still need to unzip the download to create the Installer. Start the Installer once it is available.
The new Eclipse Installer shows the packages available to Eclipse users. You can search for the package you want to install or scroll through the list.
Select and click on the package you want to install.
Specify the folder where you want Eclipse to be installed. The default folder will be in your User directory.
Select the ‘Install’ button to begin the installation.
Once the installation is complete you can now launch Eclipse. The Eclipse Installer has done it's work. Happy coding.
You will need a Java runtime environment (JRE) to use Eclipse (Java SE 7 or greater is recommended). All downloads are provided under the terms and conditions of the Eclipse Foundation Software User Agreement unless otherwise specified.
