I'm a complete newbie. I Installed the mars "Eclipse IDE for Java developers" using
the installer/oomph. I'm running through the tutorials and in the second part of
the tutorial "Create a Hello World SWT application" it is required to have the
Plugin Development Environment (PDE) installed but it's not in my installation.

On the PDE webpage, it says:
"Usually you get PDE when downloading Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers
package from https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ or Eclipse SDK package from
Eclipse project, but you also can add PDE into your existing Eclipse instance. - See
more at: https://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/eclipse-pde-plug-development-environment#sthash.gADIU1V9.dpuf"

Can I use oomph to get the PDE and put it in the bundle / how (I presume it
belongs there Wink ) ?

Hi Vjekoslav,

With Oomph you can easily add PDE tothe current Eclipse IDE. In the main menu select Navigate -> Open Setup ->
Installation. In the editor that opens, select the "Installation" root node. Then copy the following XML snippet and
paste it into the editor:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<setup.p2:P2Task
xmi:version="2.0"
xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"
xmlns:setup.p2="http://www.eclipse.org/oomph/setup/p2/1.0"
label="PDE">
<requirement
name="org.eclipse.pde.feature.group"/>
</setup.p2:P2Task>

Finally select Help -> Perform Setup Tasks...

If instead you want PDE in all your Eclipse IDEs, paste the snippet into the editor that opens for Navigate -> Open
Setup -> User.

Cheers
/Eike

Hi Eike, it worked - much appreciated !
Two more questions:
(a)Could you recommend some documentation or tutorial which would
describe how to do this myself ? Usual problem of a newbie is that a lot of
the documentation assumes you "know how to fly the plane" and not that
you are learning to fly it Smile
(b)I don't see the whole picture yet , so here's a strange question - what is the
difference between what I did using the steps you described and
File->Import->Oomph->projects into workspace-> PDE ?

There's really not so much documentation.

This imports the PDE project's source code into the workspace. It
doesn't install PDE into the IDE. Well, as a side-effect it will do
that too, but the point of a project import is generally to populate the
workspace with projects and to install any tools needed to work with
those projects.
