    Default Eclipse IDE Tutorial

    [img width=800 height=440]http://i49.tinypic.com/2zfmj5z.png[/img]

    What is Eclipse?

    Most people know Eclipse as an integrated development environment (IDE) for Java. Today it is the leading development environment for Java with a market share of approximately 65%.
    Eclipse is created by an Open Source community and is used in several different areas, e.g. as a development environment for Java or Android applications. Eclipse's roots go back to 2001.
    The Eclipse Open Source community has over 200 Open Source projects covering different aspects of software development.
    The Eclipse projects are governed by the Eclipse Foundation. The Eclipse Foundation is a non-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse Open Source projects and helps to cultivate both an Open Source community and an ecosystem of complementary products and services.
    The Eclipse IDE can be extended with additional software components. Eclipse calls these software components plug-ins. Several Open Source projects and companies have extended the Eclipse IDE.
    It is also possible to use Eclipse as a basis for creating general purpose applications. These applications are known as Eclipse Rich Client Platform (Eclipse RCP) applications.

    Eclipse Installation

    [img width=800 height=263]http://i48.tinypic.com/2a7c4f8.png[/img]

    Eclipse requires an installed Java Runtime. Eclipse 4.2 requires at least Java 5 to run.
    Java comes in two flavors, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and the Java Development Kit (JDK). The JRE contains only the necessary functionality to start Java programs, while the JDK contains in addition the development tools.
    Eclipse contains its own development tools, e.g. Java compiler. Therefore for this tutorial it is sufficient to use the JRE.
    The JDK is required if you compile Java source code outside Eclipse and for advanced development scenarios. For example if you use automatic builds or if you develop web development. These scenarios are not covered in this tutorial.
    Java might already be installed on your machine. You can test this by opening a console (if you are using Windows: Win+R, enter "cmd" and press Enter) and by typing in the following command:

    java -version

    If Java is correctly installed you should see some information about your Java installation. If the command line return the information that the program could not be found, you have to install Java. A Google search for "How to install Java on ..." should result in helpful links. Replace "..." with your operating system, e.g. Windows, Ubuntu, Mac OS X, etc.

    Download Eclipse

    The Eclipse.org website provides pre-packaged Eclipse distributions.
    Download the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers package from the following URL:

    Eclipse Download Page

    The following screenshot shows the Eclipse download website for a Linux system, press on the link beside the package, e,g, Linux 64 Bit to start the download.


    3.3. Install Eclipse

    After you downloaded the .zip file which contains the Eclipse distribution you unpack it to a local directory.

    Use a directory path which does not contain spaces in its name, as Eclipse sometimes has problems with that.
    After unpacking the downloaded zip file, Eclipse is ready to be used; no additional installation procedure is required.

    Getting started
    Starting Eclipse

    To start Eclipse double-click on the file eclipse.exe (Microsoft Windows) or eclipse (Linux / Mac) in the directory where you unpacked Eclipse.

    The system will prompt you for a workspace. The workspace is the place in which you work. Select an empty directory and press the OK button.

    Selecting the Workspace


    Eclipse will start and show the Welcome page. Close the welcome page by pressing the X beside Welcome.


    Appearance

    The appearance of Eclipse can be changed. By default Eclipse ships with a few themes but you can also extend Eclipse with new themes.
    To change the appearance, select from the menu Window → Preferences → General → Appearance
    The <guilable>Theme</guilable> selection allows you to change the appearance of your Eclipse IDE. Please note that you need to restart Eclipse to apply a new styling correctly.

    Changing the theme

    You can also install new themes.

    Eclipse user interface overview

    Eclipse provides Perspectives, Views and Editors. Views and Editors are grouped into Perspectives.

    Workspace

    The workspace is the physical location (file path) you are working in. Your projects, source files, images and other artifacts can be stored and saved in your workspace but you can also refer to external resources, e.g. projects, in your workspace.

    You can choose the workspace during startup of Eclipse or via the menu (File → Switch Workspace → Others) .

    Parts

    Parts are user interface components which allow you to navigate and modify data. Parts are typically divided into Views and Editors.


    The distinction into Views and Editors is primarily not based on technical differences, but on a different concept of using and arranging these Parts.
    A View is typically used to work on a set of data, which might be a hierarchical structure. If data is changed via the View, this change is typically directly applied to the underlying data structure. A View sometimes allows us to open an Editor for a selected set of the data.
    An example for a View is the Java Package Explorer, which allow you browse the files of Eclipse Projects. If you choose to change data in the Package Explorer, e.g. if you rename a file, the file name is directly changed on the file system.
    Editors are typically used to modify a single data element, e.g. a file or a data object. To apply the changes made in an editor to the data structure, the user has to explicitly save the editor content.
    Editors were traditionally placed in a certain area, called the editor area. Until Eclipse 4 this was a hard limitation, it was not possible to move an Editor out of this area;

    Eclipse 4 allows the user to place Editors at any position in a Perspective or even outside a Perspective.

    For example the Java Editor is used to modify Java source files. Changes to the source file are applied once the user selects the Save command.

    Perspective

    A Perspective is a visual container for a set of Parts. The Eclipse IDE uses Perspectives to arrange Parts for different development tasks.
    You can change the layout and content within a Perspective by opening or closing Parts and by re-arranging them.
    As of Eclipse 4 Perspectives are optional elements for Eclipse applications.
