Yes, complete nube here.

I currently have Galileo Package: "Eclipse IDE for Java EE developers" installed. I'm following the book OSGI and Equinox and it recomends the Package: "Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in Developers".

How do I add the features of "Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in Developers" to my existing install?

I have looked at the 'Install New Software' from the Help menu but I do not understand how to find the features that are included in "Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in Developers".

Any advice is appreciated.

Hi Tom,

see [1] for a comparison of the packages and [2] for a list of features to find out what's
missing. Actually everything is included in the EE download except the sources of
plug-ins. These are needed to work with extension points from these plug-ins. I'd
recommend to install:

- Eclipse Platform Plug-in Developer Resources

If you want to write IDE plug-ins, these might be necessary as well:

- Eclipse JDT Plug-in Developer Resources
- Eclipse PDE Plug-in Developer Resources

Please note, you need to uncheck "Group items by category" to see these features.

But, in general I'd recommend just to use the pre-packaged "Eclipse for RCP/Plug-in
Developers" download :)
