I am TRYING to download and install Eclipse IDE for Java Developers for my work and courses in Java, but it won't even download?? Shocked Every time I go to the Eclipse Downloads page, and choose IDE for Java Developers, it takes me to another page where I am supposed to choose a mirror that is closest to me. When I click on any of the mirrors provided, the thing just sits there and does nothing, while pretending to be downloading. The download never finishes though?? Crying or Very Sad Can someone PLEASE tell me why the download links do not work?? Uh Oh
I thought about trying to contact Eclipse to ask this question, but that has proven to be impossible, so I am hoping for some clarification here in the forums!! Rolling Eyes

The download links work just fine. If you have download managers, I suggest you disable them. Try using a different browser.

Right. Who would you expect to contact exactly? These community forums are the best place for these types of questions.

You've just contacted Eclipse: this forum is how you do it.

I can't duplicate what troubles you because the instructions you give
work perfectly for me. Did you indicate where to save the download in
your filesystem? Are you saying that the download never finishes? that
it doesn't leave an archive in your filesystem?
