Installing Eclipse with p2 Installer

  • Get the installer from http://download.eclipse.org/equinox/. The file we need is called equinox.p2.installer-3.x….
  • To install a specific version of Eclipse, edit the file eclipse/installer.properties.
  • Find the update site of the release to be installed from http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Project_Update_Sites.
  • Insert the correct eclipse.p2.metadata and eclipse.p2.artifacts URL. For an Eclipse 3.6 milestone, one would enter:
    eclipse.p2.metadata=http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.6milestones
    eclipse.p2.artifacts=http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.6milestones
  • Start the installer and install to a custom location.
