Installing the Eclipse Marketplace Client in your Eclipse

Author: Ian Darwin -- Published? false -- FormatLanguage: W

Problem:

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.

Solution:

Use the traditional _Install New Software_ mechanism to 'bootstrap' the Marketplace Client.

Discussion:

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).
