I'm new to eclipse and am trying to run through tutorials associated with creating plug-ins in Java. They all refer to using the subject wizard to create the plug-in. I only have an option on my installation to create a Java Project, not a Plug-In project.

I'm using Helios: eclipse-java-helios-SR1-win32.zip .

I found the following note from back in 2007:

All you have to do at that point is go to File->New->Project, Scroll down to Plug-In Development and select "Plug-in Project".

(http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/pde-dev/msg00810.html)

But I don't see any such option showing up. What am I missing? Thanks!

you're missing PDE. You have JDT+Platform+Equinox. Your best bet is to
download the full Eclipse SDK. It comes with PDE+JDT+Platform+Equinox,
source for the runtime bundles, schema files for the extension editor, etc.

http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/

Helios == 3.6.x for the Eclipse SDK
