We will be using a special version of the Eclipse development environment, modified specifically for use in this class. You must download the version of Eclipse distributed this quarter.

There are PC and Macintosh versions of the software. Installation instructions are available in the Downloading Eclipse handout. Additionally, you will need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on your computer. Links to the software are below:

Mac Users:

Stanford Eclipse for Mac

Your Mac should come with Java. However, run the “Software Update” utility (in the Apple menu) to make sure you have the most recent version.

Windows Users:

Stanford Eclipse for Windows

Java 1.6 JRE installer for the PC

If you're having trouble running eclipse, try using 7zip to unzip it instead of the built-in windows unzipping. You can get 7zip here

If directed by a TA or section leader to get a different version of Eclipse, you may need to install the plugin separately. You can find it here: Stanford Eclipse Plugin. The TA or section leader can lead you through the installation.
