Install Java Support for Eclipse CDT

December 3, 2015 | Article | No Comments

On the official eclipse page, we will see there are many Eclipse version. The two of them are Eclipse CDT (referred to Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers) and Eclipse JDT (referred to Eclipse IDE for Java Developers). Eclipse CDT is a bundle of eclipse IDE for developing C\C++ application. While the Eclipse JDT is a bundle of eclipse IDE capable of developing Java application. So by default if you are installing CDT, you can only develop C\C++ application. A similar condition apply to JDT for Java. Although they have different purpose but they are using the same application.

In this article we will discuss about how to add support for Java developing in Eclipse CDT. In other words, our Eclipse would support developing for both C\C++ and Java.

For this article I use:

  1. Slackware64 with multilib support (although not multilib-enabled is OK)
  2. Eclipse Juno for 64bit.

Now let’s go to the main point!

Start eclipse. Now navigate to:

Help -> Install New Software -> Add

enter the following information:

Name: Juno Download


Click on OK. Now expand the Programming Language section and checklist the Eclipse Java Development Tools. Click Next to begin installation. After installation you will be prompted to restart the eclipse, do so.

After a restart, you now have an Eclipse capable of develop both C\C++ and Java apps!
