In CS 106A, we'll be using a popular editor named Eclipse to build our programs. Stanford has built a customized version of Eclipse that includes special Stanford features to tailor it specifically for CS 106A, and you must install our customized version for this course. Before installing Eclipse, you will first need to install the Java Development Kit ("JDK") which is a compiler for building Java programs.

Please go to the following web site for detailed instructions about how to download and install JDK and Eclipse on your computer:

If you run into any trouble installing Eclipse, email our head TA, whose contact info is on the Staff/SLs page.
