I am on a Mac OSX Lion laptop. I run various versions of Eclipse so I was expecting that EDT would be a seamless install. When I go to the download page I only see Windows and Linux versions. I downloaded the Linux 64bit version and attempted to run the install but it failed.
Anybody else on Mac OSX that has it working? Can EDT be installed as a plugin into an existing Eclipse install?
Hi Aaron - have you tried installing via the Update Site approach? The all-in-one packages are designed for specific platforms (Windows/Linux 32/64 bit), whereas the Update Site *should* allow you to install EDT into a Eclipse JEE version 3.6 or 3.7 IDE on any supported platform.
2. Help > Install New Software > pick the update site from step 1.
3. Check "Hide items that are already installed" and uncheck "Group items by category"
4. Install both "Eclipse IDE for EGL Web Developers" and "EGL Web Developer IDE Feature". These are additional features that come with the all-in-one build, but are not required to use the EGL tooling. They change the splash screen, about dialog, default perspective, etc.
When I did this it automatically updated eclipse.ini for me so that the EDT splash screen is now used.
I have also installed EGL Development Tools (EDT) on Mac OS X (Lion). The procedure isn't exactly intuitive. It does not use the standard "OS X" way of installing applications. You do not "download" EDT from the project page. To see what I am saying, take a look at my video on YouTube.
