Hi,

I want to use Eclipse for software development and testing. Specifically UML, C/C++ and Java, as well as unit testing of the latter two. As I'm using OpenSUSE 12.2, I used YAST/Software/Software Management. This installed the following :-

ecj, ecj-bootstrap, eclipse-swt

However, nothing has shown up in the main-launcher/Applications/Development menus. I tried using (command not found) "cnf eclipse" in a terminal which resulted in "eclipse: command not found".

I then visited eclipse.org and found that there are many different versions, namely Europa, Ganymede, Galileo, Helios, Indigo and Juno.

As my PC is based on an Intel Pentium 4 running OpenSUSE 12.2, I understand that I need a Linux 32-bit version. However, other than that, this wide selection has left me confused.

Could some kind soul please point me in the direction of which version of eclipse I should install ?

Could you also please advise which plugins I need ? I know that I need cdt for C/C++ and jdt for Java. What plugins do I need for UML, and for unit testing of C/C++ & Java ? Will all these plugins be found on eclipse.org or will I need to source some of them from other locations ?

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give with this.

Stuart

The openSUSE package is from the eclipse site and only gives you the basic Java compiler; you need to download the plugins for other languages.

Have you tried

ecj

in the konsole?

Hi John,

Thanks very much for the reply.

Typing ecj on its own into a console brought up a list of usage options. This I understand from previous experience to be normal "behaviour".

As you will see from my original posting, I'm trying to find out which "dialect"/generation of Eclipse is the correct and most up-to-date one for my Intel Pentium 4/OpenSUSE 12.2 system. I'm "talking" here about the full GUI based framework.

As I said in my previous posting, on the Eclipse website there are several "dialects" of Eclipse (the aforementioned Europa, Ganymede, Galileo, Helios, Indigo and Juno [please see previous posting]). This together with the fact that there are a number of packages for each "dialect" has left me somewhat confused as to which is the correct Linux 32-bit "dialect"/package and set of plugins for my PC.

I hope this helps clarify what it is that I'm trying to do (please see previous posting).

Best regards,

Stuart

As this is an openSUSE specific question, why not visit the Programming forum at http://forums.opensuse.org?
