Installing the Eclipse Marketplace Client in your Eclipse
Author: Ian Darwin --

Some installations of Eclipse include the Marketplace Client (MPC), but some do not. Since MPC is the easiest way to install new plugins into Eclipse, we document it here.
Use the traditional _Install New Software_ mechanism to 'bootstrap' the Marketplace Client.
First, see if your Eclipse already has the Marketplace Client. Near the bottom of the Help menu, in the section with _Check for Updates_, you may or may not see the entry for Eclipse Marketplace. If you so are done. If not, continue.
To install the Marketplace, select _Install New Software_ from the above Eclipse menu. To see what versions of Marketplace Client are available, switch to a web browser, and visit the url http://www.eclipse.org/mpc/ (see Figure 1).
