I'm a Java newbie watching YouTube tutorials which are using eclipse.|
I downloaded the 64-bit eclipse to run on my Win7 64-bit computer.
I was successful with eclipse Tutorial #1 Hello World but hit the wall on Tutorial #2 Create Hello World SWT application. It fails at the step to import the SWT project from target platform using Plug-In Development Environment.
First I tried manually following the instruction to "Import From: The active target platform." Nothing was retrieved. Next I cheated and clicked on "Click to perform" and got the same result.
Then I inspected the eclipse file folder and found a sub-folder for plugins and found hundreds of plugins, so I tried importing manually again but changed the "Import From" to "Directory" and named the eclipse\plugins directory. This also yielded zero files.
Then I looked at the forum and found an entry suggesting that the Plug-in Development Environment is a separate download. So now I'm looking at a list of Plug-in downloads and I'm trying to decide which one I want.
My dilemma is none of these downloads appears to be for the 64-bit version of eclipse. Each available download says how many platforms it was tested on, but even those that say "5 of 5 platforms" do not include a file that looks like it is suitable for the 64-bit eclipse.
