Hi,

I have both the Eclipse Kepler and Luna IDE versions for Java EE Developers on my machine installed. Standard with these versions comes Egit. Do I still have to install separately git http://git-scm.com on my machine or is git already installed/included with Egit?

Thanks.

EGit is the Eclipse git integration, it's using JGit (a pure Java implementation of git)
and doesn't depend on native git.

If you also want native git you need to install that separately.

@Matthias: thanks. So I can use it Egit/Jgit out of the box with e.g. Bitbucket? Thx.

there are a couple of issues though with egit/jgit which might make it an option to anyway install native git:
* no sparse checkouts (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=383772)
* no subdirectory / multiple project in one git repository support (status, commit)
* no core.fscache support for better speed on windows
which makes eclipse a pain with large git repositories especially on windows, at least up to eclipse-4.4.1. contrary, IntelliJ has an option to use native git.

That just means we need more contributions to JGit/EGit.
